Being a Munich native, Mathias Engl proves, that one need not necessarily look abroad for soloists. Having returned from the U.S. in 1998 where he studied Jazz at the renowned University of North Texas, he has since been a steady contributor to the Munich Jazz scene. He can be heard regularly with the Harald Rüschenbaum Jazz Orchestra, the Thomas Bendzko Bigband, as well as Gregor Bürger´s "Earforce". He served as sideman and soloist in the big bands of Dusko Goykovich and Al Porcino, and also in salsa and rockbands. In the field of commercial music he played with Hugo Strasser and the Serafin Showband. Today, he is a member of the Joe Williams Showband. He also performs regularly as soloist with the Unterbiberger Hofmusik and Matt Noack´s Secret Groove Service.
