Surprise, Surprise!

Recently, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra had packed houses on its mini tour through Germany where they performed in Berlin-Koepenick and Trier. The "Jazz In Town"-Festival in Koepenick was celebrating its 15th Anniversary. In 15 years, believe it or not, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has been performing there seven times. This year's appearance had a surprise for the audience as well as for the promoter. Singer Robin Merrill (orchestra member from 1979-1989) and meanwhile living in Berlin got a front seat in the audience and joined the show at the end of the 2nd half singing along together with Duncan Galloway "Puttin' On The Ritz".

For their performance in Trier as part of the Mosel Musikfestival the orchestra received applause and standing ovations on a cold and rainy Sunday morning. What a good decision of the festival board to let the concert take place indoors.
