We welcome you to our First Thursday Showcase at our home in Gesundbrunnen, 800A. We look forward to presenting only the finest musical showcases on the first Thursdays every month.

Our inaugural First Thursday Showcase features two fantastic musicians who have recently made Berlin their home and centre of operations; James Mackenzie & Gil Hockman. We look forward to presenting these two fine artists for a night of incredible music, delicious food and beverages!

James Mackenzie
One of Scotland's most popular and prolific singer-songwriters, James Mackenzie, now based in Berlin, has had a stellar couple of years.

From touring the UK opening for folk rock band Runrig and playing festivals across Scotland – including a much-coveted slot on Belladrum Tartan Heart’s Garden Stage – to playing a 14-date German tour. James has continued to develop his craft by combining strong traditional elements and charismatic vocals with a fresh and credible contemporary swagger.

Initially coming to widespread attention seven years ago fronting 'James Mackenzie and The Aquascene', he struck out and started performing solo a year later. An exciting and engaging performer, he has continued to develop this early artistic drive, and now boasts an inventive maturity.

All of this work culminated in a watershed year for James in 2015. The release of EP Winter – described by one critic as “a great showcase for Mackenzie’s warm, husky vocals…truly heartwarming to listen” – led to James receiving the “One to Watch 2015” award from Highland radio station MFR.

Over the years, James has supported established acts, both nationally and internationally like Gallagher and Lyle, SAGA, The Saw Doctors, Hue and Cry, Roddy Woomble and Midge Ure.

Gil Hockman
Gil Hockman is a musician and songwriter from Johannesburg, South Africa. Performing with a guitar, synthesiser and loop-station Gil weaves a minimalist sound reminiscent of Beck, the Eels or Grandaddy. His songs move without falling into pathos while his skilled arrangements are a fascinating mix of folk, blues, indietronica.

His releases include Dolorous (2014), All The Things (2013) and Too Early In The Journey (2011). 

Gil has also composed two film scores, Fatherland (2013) and Timelines (2016), and his songs won the Best Soundtrack award at the 2015 Fusion Audience Choice Awards for the short film I Am Juli.

All of Gil's releases can be found at You also can find plenty other tracks at
