One Side Of The Ocean

....well, there are two sides of the ocean:

As WORLD5 is literally a global band :

Let us introduce the former german and now swedish and new zealand citizens:
1982:  Founding Members Raimund Breitfeld on drums and Steffen Goeres on guitars

"At that time the electric shavers haven´t been invented yet, the guitars were quite big and a part of the drums missed the shape they nowadays have."

Raimund Breitfeld - drums, percussion WORLD5

During his high school days Raimund  and his good friend Steffen Goeres performed together in several Rock and Pop bands. Steffen's skills on the guitar was so advanced that he was already doing solo concerts as a teenager. Steffen was so dedicated that he literally slept with his guitar. Raimund couldn´t keep up with Steffen on guitar and since there were very few drummers in their small town and their skills were moderate Raimund found his calling behind the drums. Drum lessons, music academy and the college of music followed and he ended up with a degree as a drummer and music teacher.

Playing regularly, Steffen also inspires hundreds of students through his teaching at secondary schools. In 2000, Steffen released his solo CD - “A Dozen One Afternoon” - an album of 12 original compositions played on the nylon string guitar. Steffen’s professionalism and musical talents are indisputable, combining harmonic sounds, catchy melodies and smooth grooves. With his skills and experience delivering a quality listening experience to many musical genres, a call from his friend Raimund, to invite him to play for WORLD5, reintroduced him to pop music.
