Side by Side · gypsy-style in modern compositions

Side by Side is a group formed by childhood friends David Beck and Boris Wiese, who after ten years of working together as a duo, have formed a trio. Guitarist Gotthard Beck now compliments the band, enriching their compositions with a fresh, rich feeling on stage. Their modern style of gypsy jazz never stops exciting the audience with something new.

After David Beck and Boris Wiese had begun their own performing careers in different directions, they founded Side by Side in 1995. Since the end of 2004 they have a new partner who came to them directly out of the neighborhood. After many guest performances, Davids father, Gotthard Beck, was no longer considered a temporary member but a permanent one, which has allowed David increasing opportunities to play the Arabian Oud.

They receive considerable inspiration from Mediterranean music, the „home of the acoustic guitar.“ Their repertoire always reflects an openness for multicultural influences. Their tasteful guitar improvisations give evidence of the free-form style of gypsy jazz and always keep a modern and exciting character. In their enthusiastic concerts, Side by Side lets their joy for playing run free. They cover a wide musical range and enjoy preparing an aesthetic ambience for many occasions.

Side by Side occasionally forms a quartet with Algerian percussionist Miloud Messabih. They combine the love for north African rhythms and the musical variety of the Orient. ompositions is characterized by verve and virtuosity always sweetened by romantic emotions.
