Mike Novak grew up near the New York music culture and was a Washington D.C.-based musician before moving to Hamburg in January 2022. He composed and recorded several albums while performing at venues as a solo artist, as well as in various ensembles. Mike hosted a monthly musical residency at the Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan, coined the last funky neighborhood in Washington D.C. Several collaborations were born during these years, including the rock group Novakaine. They produced the album “Waves” that D.C. music critic David Hintz described as “…engaging, agreeable rock music with some creative flourish along with a lot of clever songwriting shifts and just enough power pop”. Christine Hopp, a classically trained violin and piano player from Germany, has performed with Mike in the USA since 2018. They are currently performing in Hamburg under the name HoppNova and Christine’s contribution of unique melodic riffs and background vocals help shape their unique sound. With rhythms and energy that will pull you in, their performance will showcase original compositions and a large repertoire that embraces Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll, with undertones of Reggae and Bluegrass. The concert at Brückenstern on March 30th begins at 20:00 with an opening act by local Singer/Songwriter MockingNerd
