Volker Strifler Band - An International Band


Carl J. Bowers: Tenor Trombone

Starting out, Carl performed the works of classical composers on piano, flute and guitar before taking an interest in jazz trombone and the electric bass in 1973. Studying with Melvin Frame until 1981, Carl had become a sought after trombonist for both classical and jazz work and received regular calls from Musicians Union anytime an accomplished Trombonist was needed. His excellent musicianship and talent also afforded him the opportunity to work with greats like David Baker, Louis Mandrell, and many more. Aside from playing trombone in The Volker Strifler Band, Carl is busy playing bass for a myriad of bay area bands.
