Jon says, "It is a great way to kick off the Musikmesse every year, we always look forward to this casual and fun evening after the stands are built, it’s great to unwind with some swinging funky jazz music and beverages served by the friendly team at this special club Jazzkeller. This Musikmesse event and the Jazzkeller are both very close to my heart personally, I had my first successful European shows here in the Jazzkeller after I moved to Germany for 5 years because of so many special friends I have through our years attending Musikmesse. The first Musikmesse Warm Up Party we did was sponsored by Philip Morris Cigarettes and RTL Plus TV Show "Hessen Report". Nowadays it is not permitted to smoke cigarettes inside the club, but we are thankful for all of the support we have received and now we gather with our friends in clean air which is really nice, although Eugen Hahn owner of Jazzkeller had installed one of the best industrial air cleaners of any club I have played in! A good time for all, we are looking forward to seeing all our friends there again soon and every day in Halle 3.1 where all the best accordions in the world and players will be!" *special thanks Accordions World Wide Team
