Fee Schlennstedt named Artribute head of booking
German promoter and booking agency Artribute has appointed a new head of booking.
Fee Schlennstedt, most recently a booker at the 180-cap. Jazzclub Unterfahrt (‘Underpass’) in Munich, replaced Matthias Wendl on 1 April. Wendl had been in the role for ten years, and will continue to serve as a consultant to the Berlin-based agency.
Schlennstedt is highly regarded in the German jazz world, and her unexplained dismissal from the club last October spawned a petition demanding Fee Schlennstedt soll in der Unterfahrt bleiben! (‘Fee Schlennstedt should stay in the Unterfahrt!’)
“With Fee Schlennstedt, we have gained an excellent networker and an expert on the jazz scene”
Artribute, founded in 2001 by Björn Kloos, provides management, booking and tour promotion services to a roster that includes Snarky Puppy, Becca Stevens, Bokanté, the Pablo Held Trio and Jacob Collier.
It is a partner agency to A.S.S. Concerts, which announced the news.
A.S.S. managing director Michael Bisping says he is “convinced that Schlennstedt will be able to further expand [Artribute’s] jazz portfolio and continue to grow the company successfully”.
“With Fee Schlennstedt, we have gained an excellent networker and an expert on the [jazz] scene,” adds Kloos.
