In the organizer's words:

Is there a German rock band whose songs have hardly lost any of their relevance even after more than 50 years? Probably not many, but certainly one: TON STEINE SCHERBEN. After the early death of their singer Rio Reiser (†1996), the band returned to the stage in various formations in the new millennium. Two original Scherben still tour German-speaking countries today: founding member Kai Sichtermann (bass, since 1970) and drummer Funky K. Götzner (from 1974, now cajón). Since April 2023, they have been playing together with singer/songwriter nomad Birte Volta (vocals, guitar). Birte internalizes both the folk-blues and the rock'n'roll that emerged from it with passion and poetry and draws on many years of street and stage experience at home and abroad, with her solo project and as a singer and guitarist in various formations of these genres. The trio draws on the repertoire of Rio Reiser and the Scherben and keeps the memories of a rebellious time alive: the radicalism of the Scherben, which was a lived everyday radicalism. On this evening, the audience will experience other musicians from the Scherben family on stage.
