BONGO BOULEVARD builds unique stages. Stages that are a surprise. Stages, that have never been seen before. And show musicians in ways they have never been shown. Real, personal - and emotional.
When Fynn Kliemann sings his first song ever 54 meters above Berlin on a telescope boom - when Mine, who loves Alpacas, but has never seen one in her whole life, is surprised with a stage on a field filled with them - or when drumming world record holder Nils Berger plays a surprise concert on a raft on a river - in the midst of Berlin, in the sunset below the famous Oberbaumbrücke - then the BONGO BOULEVARD Crew has once again built a stage.
It is a day our guests will never forget. And incredible moments of entertainment and live music for our viewers.
But BONGO BOULEVARD ist more than this. BONGO BOULEVARD goes beyond the stale ping-pong of music interviews. We don't ask (again): How did you come up with the name of your album? We ask: What is your sound? We've prepared something for you...
BONGO BOULEVARD's Marti Fischer is a music producer and sound genius searching for something. He is looking for a unique sound, for the mysteries of production - for the sound of our guests. He deconstructs it - and attempts to build a soundalike. A new song by Marti Fischer is assembled step-by-step that is supposed to sound like one of our guests - or at least attempts to. Can Marti do it? This is not just something decided by Marti's fans and music lovers. But also by our guests themselves.
After performing on their unique stage, we will show our guests what Marti has made. In absence of Marti's curious eyes and ears, they will have the last word. A REACT TO in this manner has never been done before. Musicians react to Marti Fischer - who has tried to capture their sound. Was it awesome? Was something missing? Did he hit the nail on the head? Or miss completely? The reaction will be shown as part of our BEHIND THE SCENES. How did the BONGO BOULEVARD Crew surrounding creator and showrunner Marie Meimberg construct this stage? These and other moments compose the frame for our guest's reaction to Marti's song in a short-form documentary style.
At BONGO BOULEVARD, musicians talk to musicians about music - with music. BONGO BOULEVARD builds stages for musicians, celebrates music, those who make it, produce it, those who want to, and all those who, with BONGO BOULEVARD, want to discover music anew.
