Professional musicians as field testers are taken very seriously at Sommer cable because we depend on their honest opinion. Famous musicians are at an advantage because they typically hang out with an entire team of highly talented technicians who have very fast access to innovations and can voice suggestions for improvement as well as critique. This all benefits the quality of our products and we are very happy to have met these great people at gigs, through friends, and even in person. You will find that these people – if you should have the opportunity to get to know them personally – are very likable and down-to-earth, and that we are a great match. At Sommer cable we would like to say thanks to all these great musicians, photographers, bands, and managers for their uncomplicated cooperation. As a special service you can download the current tour dates or read up on the latest news about them on our website at any time.

On this page you will find a small excerpt of friends and users who are always willing to help us out with their expertise.

St. Pauli Blues: the sound of the 60s has now boomed for years, and just about as long five guys have been touring through overcrowded clubs who, beyond any doubt, belong to the creme of Europe’s blues scene. THE HAMBURG BLUES BAND stands for an intense, cleverly arranged and, played live, a mind-blowing roots blues which gets purists staggering mentally time and again. For the company around singer Gert Lange, who is often compared to Joe Cocker, mixes bare-knuckle guitar bluesrock with soul, classic rhythm’n blues, boogie and even occasional ventures into jazz sceneries with as much joy of playing as they are aware of tradition.

The lineup of the HBB reads like a “Who is Who“ of the European music scene: guitarist, singer, songwriter and Woodstock veteran Miller Anderson, who had already been playing since the 60s with all top bands of the international music scene (Ian Hunter, Keef Hartley Band, Savoy Brown, Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack, Mountain, T-Rex, Donovan, the Spencer Davis Group, Mick Taylor, Roger Chapman and Jon Lord, Deep Purple); drummer Hans Wallbaum, who for years had been sitting behind the kit for Ruhrpott rocker Stoppok, was formerly booked for the drums by Chuck Berry, Interzone and Marius Müller-Westernhagen; shouter Gert Lange used to work with the Rainer Baumann Band, Stoppok, Inga Rumpf, Jack Bruce and Zoot Money; and Michael Becker (Spooky Tooth, Lake, Die Antwort) on bass.
