"Jazzbar Vogler" or just "Vogler´s" opened at 1997, July 31rd. Thomas Vogler never worked in a Bar before and didn´t know one single musician in person as he started his own bar. Maybe a little risky decision ... :-)
"Vogler´s" tries to be a relaxed "musical living room", is one of the rare live-music-spots (and the only Jazzbar) in Munich, totally privately financed (without any subventions as others), and offers as a Bar Live-Music from Jazz over Funk to Latin with national and inter-national Stars (e.g. Randy Brecker, Jimmy Cobb, Charles Davis, Pee Wee Ellis, ...) or "rising stars".
With yearly Benefit-Nights and corporate citizenship, a 19-years-battle versus "GEMA" and the taxes waste through "Initiative Musik", "Vogler´s" trys to "look over the own edge of the plate". Readings, CD-Presentations, Movie-Location ... make "Vogler´s" round.
