Many artists embark into the world of music at an early age. Sometimes it is the collection of records of their parents, and sometimes it is the first instrument they are learning (some, of course, with more eagerness than others). In Reinhard Tesch’s case it was a package with a Fender Stratocaster which his grandmother sent to him from West-Berlin. He started composing music, toured with bands, and managed to get his songs up in the radio, TV-shows, and charts. His number 1 hit “und ich sehn’ mich nach dir – and I’m longing for you” is still successfully published. After the re-unification of West and East Germany he moved to the United States in 1992 and started to write songs for young artists. Later he began performing live again, motivating him to go back in the studio to record a few songs for his album. “Back in Town” gives a glance into his works from the 80’s until 2010, and as the cover conveys, his song selection is a musical journey. Straight forward harmonic rock songs tell stories about his live experiences, dreams, and his aspiration for rock’n roll; but rock is not the only influence of Reinhard Tesch’s music. In his current music you can hear acoustic, funk, and even classical elements.

K92FM ALS Walk
Besides all the wonderful entertainment, this event is really to help bring awareness to ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease and is a donation drive to help fund ALS research and support "local" ALS patient care for those suffering from ALS. One of the entertainers on stage was Reinhard Tesch known as guitar player of Going on Tuesday, who performed at the Amphitheater at Lake Eola in 2009 and 2010. Reinhard gave his debut solo performance this year with songs from his recently released album “Back in Town”. He offered that proceeds of his CD sales would go the ALS fund.
