From New Orleans to Santiago de Chile, Sao Paolo & Leipzig all the way to Amsterdam where he is currently based as an artist, Bernhard Hollinger has been collecting inspiration and working as a professional musician.

 

Bernhard Hollinger is a bandleader and sideman – composer and arranger whose path has been influenced greatly by musicians such as Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Meshell Ndegeocello, Richard Bona, Yaniv Nachum and Harmen Fraanje .

 

BHG (Bernhard Hollinger Group) was born out of Bernhard’s need to gather all his impressions and explore them with fellow-musicians who come from diverse backgrounds. The result was a sound fuelled by improvisation and characterized by a strong rhythmic pulse and a psychedelic atmosphere which is created through the use of vibrant guitar/keys sound effects and horn playing.

 

Since BHG’s debut performance in 2009 for Ingolstadt’s Jazzfestival (where Bernhard received the upcoming artist award), the band played ten tours which included concerts in such venues as Concertgebouw van Amsterdam and Amsterdam BlueNote as well as large-scale events such as Jazztage Ingolstadt, San Bernardo Jazz, La Serena Jazz, Jazzfestival Rancagua, where the stage was shared with such artists as Frank Gambale, Christian Galvez, Gary Willis, Dominique di Piazzia and Christian Scott to name a few.

 

In 2013, Bernhard Hollinger received an endorsement by the high-class amplification brand Aguilar from NYC, which was followed by the release of BHG debut album in the summer of 2014 by 2stroke Records.

 

The current line-up of BHG consists of Augustas Baronas, session-drummer from Vilnius, Matthias van den Brande from Antwerp on tenor- and soprano-saxophone, dutch Mark Nieuwenhuis on trumpet and effects and Sebastian Gampert from Germany on keys/synth.
