The gameboymusicclub − initiated by Wolfgang Kopper and Herbert Weixelbaum in 2002 − is the largest and most exciting gameboy music collective in the whole world.

D´Artangnan − gypsy jazz
The mission of D'artangnan is to bring the musical heritage of Django Reinhardt into the 21st century. Since 2008, D'Artagnan from Cologne and Berlin play Gypsy Jazz. They play standards from the 1930s as well as own compositions. With their surprising repertoire of music from computer games they close the gap between the 20th and 21st century.
