Their Boogie Woogie offers melodic and rhythmic elements that make up the genuine authentic railroad sounds in music. BOOGIE WOOGIE BROTHERs are Axel Zwingenberger at the piano and Torsten Zwingenberger on drums. Axel plays the piano with precision and virtuosity like no other. He is viewed as the uncrowned king of Boogie Woogie for good reason. He plays sharply accentuated, rolling bass lines with his left hand, while doing improvised, changing blues variations with trills, tremolos and melodic figures with his right. On drums Torsten Zwingenberger plays with a natural talent. Those who experience a life performance by Torsten Zwingenberger will recognize the dynamic and precise style of this exceptional drummer. His unbeatable par-force rides over the drums are an essential part of every concert. Zwingenberger defined the drum solo again with different effects. Where others simply play the drums he creates magic.

Axel’s musical partners include blues greats such as Sippie Wallace, Lloyd Glenn or the big band legend Lionel Hampton. Torsten appeared with Harry Sweets Edison, Buddy Tate, Joe Pass, Jay Mc Shann and many others. Together the brothers taped two LPs or CDs with Big Joe Turner, Champion Jack Dupree and Joe Newman, just to name a few. The duo recorded two LPs and CDs, "Boogie Woogie Bros." in 1988 and "Brothers in Boogie" in 1997.
