For two hours Baum’s Bluesbenders entertained the visitors from far and wide at the traditional Bad Godesberg Santa Claus Market with their powerful blues & roots late afternoon show, on Sunday, November 29.
Baum’s Bluesbenders is a band composed of 4 experienced musicians namely: Bill Baum, guitar player, keyboarder and singer; Francis Holzapfel, drummer; Jan Laacks, bass player and finally Uwe Placke, harp & guitar player and singer.
Most vistors obviously liked Baum’s Bluesbenders dynamic melodic music, from Chicago Blues to Boogie and Rock ’n‘ Roll and seemed to have much fun. Right from the start, animated by bandleader Bill Baum, the crowd was clapping hands and singing along. After a while some people even began to dance to the music in front of the stage. Great applause after each song for the four local heroes.
