Martin Gerschwitz’s formula for success is a fine blend of luck, a whole lot of struggle, and a strong belief that some day he’ll be at the top. That day is just around the corner for Martin Gerschwitz, the classically trained German born keyboardmaster who back in 1986 came to the United States without money, a band or equipment. But it didn’t take long for Martin to put his formula to work, after one audition TIM BOGERT (ex-Vanilla Fudge bass player) asked him to join his band, and by the end of the year Martin Gerschwitz added LOVERBOY and EDDIE VAN HALEN to the list of musicians which he’s shared center stage with.
Over the next 10 years Martin performed at well over 2,500 live events worldwide, from solo appearances with orchestras in Germany to European Rockfestivals, from the Russian Rhythm and Blues Festival to the Singapore Blues Festival, from a concert tour of the Persian Gulf countries to the Iceland Rock Festival, Martin Gerschwitz toured the U.S. and the world with such acts as LITA FORD, MEAT LOAF, VANILLA FUDGE, WALTER TROUT BAND, just to name a few. He also recorded many CD’s as a result of these tours.
In 1996 he started his own project utilizing the classical knowledge he had, first with a (also classically trained) flute player who he recorded 3 beautiful Flute and Piano CD’s with (DAN LEFLER and MARTIN GERSCHWITZ, Volume 1-3 all available through “Alles Klar Productions”), then finally in 1998 he decided to do it all by himself, he basically went back to his roots.
As a result of that Martin Gerschwitz put out yet another CD called “Lazy Afternoon”, a wonderful, very relaxing all keyboard piece of music which is available through this website or can be obtained at “Tower Records” in Laguna Hills – a must have for every music fan.
In March of 1999, Martin got approached to join “Eric Burdon & The New Animals” as their permanent keyboard/violin player. As of May of 1999, Martin has been touring with them all over the world (Europe, all of America, Hongkong, Singapore, etc.), and it’ll go on in the year 2000 with tours of America and Europe again, immediately followed by a 3 weeks concerttour of Australia and New Zealand.
