Rotsch Weber started playing bass at the age of 14. Until 34 I played in countless formations. Highlights were the performance with "Fenchel" (NuJazz/Freefunk) at the Jazz-Festival in Montreux and an extensive tour through Italy and Slovenia with the Hard-/Funk-Core Band "Forehead".  After a 20-year bass break, Peter Bryner got me to strap on my instrument again and that's how I ended up with "groove me". It's extremely fun to groove along in this band!!! I play a Musicman inspired, medium scale 4-string Bass guitar - made by Hans Bodmer.
