Composer and multi-instrumentalist. The intensive occupation with the genres of funk, rock, jazz, flamenco, Latin and modern classic results in a creative, symbiotic composition and playing style that searches for and finds something unusual. Countless concerts since 1974 form the basis for routine live work.
Intensive studio work, numerous, sophisticated compositions and film music as well as the sound installation “Music from Chaos” as part of the exhibition “The imperfect man” (Hygiene Museum Dresden) show his wide scope.

Picked up the bass at the age of 16 and within a few month his band won the first band contest. He fell in love with the fatness and the groove of the bass guitar and he never looked back. He taught himself different styles from Rock, Pop, Blues and also some portions of Jazz, Country and more. Since 35 years on stage he still loves to lay down the groove!
Marco started to play the drums in his late twenties, seeking and finding the company of seasoned and experienced musicians from the very outset. Since then, the love for his instrument and the passion for music keeps on growing. For him, nothing beats that spark when a group of musicians play in tight unison. His activities feature both original and cover songs across a wide range of styles. He’s not in it for the fame or the riches, his only goal is that you move to the groove…
Sabrina Springer (Sabsy)
Music has always been a part of Sabsy’s life as she started her musical career at the age of three with playing the flute. Later she started to play the piano as well but soon discovered the instrument she truly loved: The saxophone.
After she started, she soon got into the local orchestra - being the youngest member at that point – and into the Big Band of her school. Sabsy passed all examinations of the MON and was awarded with the golden badge for her skills.
Since she picked up the saxophone, she has never stopped and is still part of various musical groups, such as Big Bands, orchestras, and smaller formations as she considers herself a “musical junkie”. She co-founded My little Mayhem in 2013 with which she won her first Band Contest in 2015.
In 2021, Sabsy joined Passion Control and here she has found equally minded and experienced musicians there with whom she can share all of her ambitions and she received the chance to prove herself by already participating in the production of their second EP “Second beyond the first”.
