we have experienced good times and even miracles within the
deadhead- and jamband-scene for many years now.
The nicest experience imaginable for us would be to join
a jamband's crew for several weeks on a concert tour.
Hopefully this letter helps to make this dream of ours
reality one day:
We are two German doctors traveling around the world since April 2000.
On our way around the globe we look for partners
to barter our skills
for food and accomodation, which in fact made the length of our
journey possible in first place.
This website documents some of our travel experiences since our departure in April 2000.
We'd love to round it off with
a report from a jamband's tour, which is probably our most attractive
barter object for you.
What else could we do to help
a band on tour?
Document the tour in digital pictures, which can be uploaded on
an existing website at once. Alternatively store them on CD for
later use e.g. in a planned website or video of the band.
We carry a digital video camera and can cut and copy
short scenes for a band's video clip
if another laptop is provided.

Healing and Coaching:
We are both medical doctors and psychotherapists.
We are not licensed to practice in the US! Still our expertise
could prove valuable in helping bands to cope with the day-to-day
physical and mental stresses of being on the road.
Update our (and the band's) website while touring and/or
translate the band's website into German.
Technique and Computers:
MArtin has some technical knowledge, knows how to
install PCs and how to work with a variety
of computer programs.
Astrid is a good cook and we both like to take care of children
(not predominantly, please
Write German Reviews:
MArtin used to write music reviews for AUDIO
the biggest German HiFi- and Music Magazine. Maybe you need
German written reviews of concerts - for web or print
We speak English, French and German fluently, as well as a bit
We carry more equipment than cloths with us, so touring in a
warm climate would be appreciated. Possible destinations include
USA, Latin American or the Caribbean, as we travel close-by at
visa for the USA
We don't have any direct contacts to American bands yet.
So we hope it’s a good idea to upload this page and ask
kindly for your help:
If you know a jamband
that might be interested, please forward
the URL of this page.
If you are not the right
person to ask but know of a better one, or a better way how we
this longstanding dream – please tell us.
You're welcome to ask more details, if needed.
Thank you, all the best
Astrid & MArtin
