The Daniel Guggenheim Quartet plays in this cast since 2007. During that time the group has developed a very individual “sound”. Subtly strucured, but still powerfull. The setlist includes originals and their own interpretations of standards. On many concerts at festivals and jazzclubs the group has set the house on fire.

Wesley G was born in Wiesbaden, Germany.
He first studied classical guitar but was soon captivated by the sounds of Django Reinhardt.
Later B.B. King, Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass served as touchstones, paving the way of his own identity sitting in and/or playing professionally in Frankfurt, Paris and other majors venues around europe, Wesley soon became a ‘must-have-him’ on the jazz-scene; and before you could say “Let’s hit”, was performing with many of his heroes such as Tony Lakatos, Jimmy Brono, Louis Stewart, Jimmy Woode, Birelle Lagrene, Steve Thorton, Emil Mangelsdorf, Liza Minelle, Barry Finnerty, Derrick James and many other fine musicians.
