About Ulrich

I am a saxophonist and clarinettist performing music of various cultural influences shaping ceremonial events in and around churches.
Uli Doenitz's profile picture

Growing up in Germany I played various wind instruments from a young age. I committed to saxophones and clarinet from around 13 years of age, playing in various groups (Jazz, Classical, Klezmer). Musical influences that I have taken with me into my busking performances. I am not playing with any backing tracks, instead seeking to communicate emotions, responding to people, to what is in the air. Since 2022 I am regularly recording music in Cathedrals exploring and working with the particular reverberating echo of that space (which you can hear in my tracks). Music has become my language to express that which cannot be said in words. And still needs to be said. Rather than being noisy I try to explore the silence, listen in to myself, into my environment and find the music that captures it.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will do my best to be flexible. I should normally be able to adjust my plans if times change slightly. Just get in touch as soon as you can so I can adapt.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?


How much time do you need to set up?

I need about 5 minutes to set up. But I usually try to be around at 30 minutes early to pick up the atmosphere, have a chat with people and a rest before I start to perform.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Sure! I am happy to discuss what suits the location and event in advance as well as during the event. In over 30 years of busking in the most varied places and times I have developed a sense of what suits the respective situation.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, I have done that regularly. But it will depend upon the requests, and upon enough time given to learn the song.
