THE EVENT

IMAGINE LOTS OF PEOPLE GET TOGETHER AND PLAY YOUR FAVORITE SONGS AND YOU CAN BE THERE AND IT HAPPENS IN THE STADIUM THE BIGGEST CONCERT OF YOUR LIFE!

Music as an international language connects and brings together musicians from many regions and countries. THE GRAND JAM creates an international musical family that fulfills the dream of a stadium concert together. Whether beginner or professional – everyone can take part. And you never know – maybe you want to be a musician as well. Air guitar today, electric guitar tomorrow. If you start now, you can be part of the concert in the stadium.

As if the number of participating musicians wasn’t enough, THE GRAND JAM also uses impressive show effects. Let yourself be enchanted by light, pyrotechnics, fire and artists who impressively underline the effect of the songs. The show also includes interaction with the fans in the stands – singing along, celebrating and playing air guitar.

THE GRAND FAMILY

Music as an international language connects and brings together musicians from many regions and countries. THE GRAND JAM thus creates an international musical family that fulfills the dream of a stadium concert together. Whether beginner or professional – everyone can take part.

The “jammers” from THE GRAND JAM are a big family and they also make music together in smaller groups or sometimes just shoot a video in a parking lot. But look for yourself…

THE GRAND JAM Band consists of:

  • VOCALS (female/male)
  • GUITAR
  • BASS
  • KEYBOARD
  • DRUMS
  • BRASS/SAX (trumpet, trombone, alto/tenor sax
  • STRINGS (violin, viola, cello)

THE BANDCOACH

More than 20 gold and platinum albums with millions of copies sold – including 11 No. 1 albums in Europe – tell their own story. Mark Smith plays guitar, bass and piano, arranges, composes, programs, produces and sings. From the beginnings of the first home recording systems (late 80s) to the present day, Mark Smith has written over 2000 songs, many of which have been released and some of which have become national or international successes.

Mark Smith works with the who’s who of the German music scene. His 20-year collaboration with Johannes Oerding certainly stands out. As bassist in the band KINGDOM COME, Mark Smith also gained a great deal of experience in large-scale live entertainment.

In the early 2000s, Mark Smith was active in the casting show business in several countries, where he can also look back on successful productions. Since Mark Smith attended his first songwriting camp in London in 1999, he has been the initiator of national and international songwriting camps every year and can therefore count many composers, lyricists and producers around the world among his circle of friends. In 2018 he won the “German Songwriter Award” / In 2020 he was one of the jurors. Mark Smith does not conduct in the classical way, but rather brings out the absolute best performance from each individual band member through his empathetic manner.
