Cool, thanks for posting this news!

Yes, the guys from Juke Box Hero -Performing the Music of Foreigner- hired my as their new keyboardist. My live setup is Nord Stage 2, Alesis Andromeda, Hammond SK1 and Korg Kronos. These keys are perfect for all the unique Foreigner sounds. In the first place I thought the Fusion would be good, but I don't need the large 88 keys on stage, so the Nord Stage 2 with 76 keys makes it.

This music is also a challenge, Al Greenwood and Thomas Dolby defined the Foreigner rock keyboard sound which is also pretty dominant besides the lead vocals. And I love Mick Jones songs! He's a great composer and when diving into the lead sheets and arrangements I found out that sometimes it sounds so easy but is very tricky to play. Also they have two keyboardists on stage and I try to play all keyboard parts alone. Sound design is a challenge too, the intro of Waiting for a Girl ... is created by Thomas Dolby and is a Minimoog multitracking, so I used the Andromeda for that. It took a while to get it and I'm happy that it works with that one.
Rock´n Roll is music, not driving instructions.
