The Artists

Künstler is what we like to call them in German – those who make the art. They are the generous and inventive spirits who make Same Old Song possible, lending their creative gifts to the community for a night of serious silliness and experimental musicality. One of the great results of the project has been the joy with which the artists offer their interpretations, many of which are first-time collaborations.

At least 218* artists have been involved so far in interpreting the Same Old Song shows. The number at the end indicates which episode(s) they have participated in.
(Some artists have provided links to their websites. Simply click on the name).

FIRST BUT NOT LEAST:  One of the most important aspects of our shows is the sound technician! In our case, one man has been responsible for setting up, checking sound, and running the board for the show.  Hurray and thanks to Samuel Dalferth of Milla Club Munich…. and then came Nils Beck! We are growing, and we need a stage manager. Nils is amazing when it comes to setting up for the next group so that Sam can work the board.

A very special thanks to our house DJ, the brilliant Der Kaiser von Doo Dah, who plays the weirdest and most wonderful, danceable covers of any DJ I know.
