Storm Seeker – Nautic Force Tour

Welcome to Storm Seeker‘s Nautic Force tour presented by NoCut Entertainment! The tour is already running, but some dates are still left over. Tonight, on an early March Thursday evening, we meet our five pirates downstairs in the cellars of Nachtleben in Frankfurt’s inner city. In a manner of speaking, Storm Seeker set their sails in a pirate submarine on their first headline tour!

Tír Saor “Wollt ihr ein Seemannslied hören?“

Of course, Storm Seeker don’t come alone, the opener of the tour is duo Tír Saor which enters the stage with their fine folk and celtic music but only half of the band today. Manuel comes alone because his bandmate Christian had an injury but he is already on the way of recovery. At least, for the first time ever, I see the tiny stage of Nachtleben not crowded or even overcrowded with musicians who must find their place.

Even though there is only one musician today, Tír Saor create a mood and atmosphere which can’t be described with words only. I’ve seen bands with more members and less enthusiasm in the crowd for sure. Even Manuel was surprised! We will see him again later…

Mythemia even raise the mood

They already are on the stage, so it takes only a short while until the six musicians who present Mythemia take over with their unique Fantasy Folk Rock and German lyrics. They play a tight set of songs in a relatively short time. Well, that’s the fate of the support band. BUT they do a damn good job.

Sadly, cello player Vivian will leave Mythemia after this tour to discover new shores with bands like Molllust but today there is no time for sadness and goodbye but just party! And they party together with the audience as if all hell is breaking lose.

Storm Seeker

Then it is time for Captain “Timothy” Bornfleth on lead vocals and his crew, “Olaf” Bornfleth on percussion and drums, “Ughar der schrecklich Durstige” Braatz on beer barrel, keys and accordion, “Fabi” Kirschke on hurdy-gurdy and  “Paulie” Martens on guitar. No bass player on board of their pirate ship, Well, a sixth and guest musician would have to fit into Storm Seeker’s brotherhood. AND he or she would need to squeeze in on stage. And this particular stage is smaller than most people’s bathroom…

The Barrel

Instead of a sixth musician, a barrel of beer plays an important role during the show, you’ll later see which. I have experienced that several times whenever I saw them as support band of Mono Inc. [by the way, check their Symphonic Tour dates in April] or Manntra [check their tour dates as well, starting at Wiesbaden on 14th April] and on some festivals. They miss out the bass player but never the barrel, no matter, how short their set is.

A firework of Piracy

For the next 90 minutes we enjoy a festival of piracy in the best terms of its golden age. And we meet Manuel again, he joins in for a singalong in the middle of crowd. Paulie and Olaf swap instruments, Fabi swaps them with herself anyway, from hurdy-gurdy to flute to vocals and to an unidentified instrument which I thought is part of a torture procedure.

Ughar, nomen est omen

And Ughar, well, Ughar is Ughar, he plays every kind of beer and a little bit of keyboards, stationary behind his bar, on an old school Casio-player or an infernal solo on his keytar. And he serves the beer. Just one remark at that point, in Frankfurt we serve “Äppler” – the German version of cider…, just to remember next time! 😉

Get ready and be surprised

I could now write down the whole set list but that would be unfair. The tour is still going on and I like to be surprised, so why shouldn’t you? Just a few hints though, of course you will row, of course you will meet Jack and there will be aMono Inc.-cover, co-written by Olaf. Check the remaining dates, you won’t regret to invest only a little money to see three great bands and have a good party time.
