Referenzen für Senior Drummajor Guinness Adria

 

 

I felt that I had to write to you regarding the excellent performance of D/Maj Guinness Adria during the ‘Deutschland Tattoo auf Schalke’ that my band was fortunate to take part in last weekend.  During the lead-up to the event, D/Maj Adria proved to be a highly personable liaison and extremely efficient administrator who displayed a comprehensive understanding of all tasks and duties at hand. That said, he was not afraid to seek advice and I am grateful for the input that I was personally afforded in my capacity as Senior Musical Director for the event. All attendees were in awe of his presence on parade (both in rehearsal and performance) and he without doubt made an invaluable contribution to the massed band and pipes finale. D/Maj Adria clearly assisted in leading and assuring a ‘world-class’ performance on a ‘world-class’ stage.
Due recognition should be given to his enthusiasm and tireless efforts in keeping everyone informed of any changes in the arena.  Indeed, on the two occasions when there was slight confusion from some of the local musicians during the finale, there could have been potential for serious embarrassment were it not for D/Maj Adria’s quick thinking and experience. In short, he helped to ensure the finale was such a spectacle and certainly one of the highlights of my career.   
I have been impressed with D/Maj Adria’s dedication, professionalism and the way he goes about his business.  He brings credit to the appointment that he holds and he possesses an infallible appetite for hard work. He constantly seeks ways for improvement and he is clearly an extremely dedicated individual. 
I would be grateful if you could please pass on thanks to D/Maj Guinness Adria from all members of The Band of The Blues and Royals for everything he has done. We look forward to working with him again in the future.
Kind regards,

Big thanks however needs to go out to Guinness Adria, because of his Contact and relationship with many International and National associations he has made it for us as well as many other bands like us to perform in front of national and international audiences.

Hi Guinness
Thank you too for all your hard work in looking after us; the band
thoroughly enjoyed performing at The Schalke Tattoo and the least I can
do is let your chairman know - consider it done!
Thank you once again for a very special time and it was a pleasure to
meet you.

Bedanken müssen wir uns Herzlichst bei Senior Drummajor Guinnes Adria, ohne den wir an diesen großartigen Events nie hätten teilnehmen können.
Guinnes Adria ist seit Jahren sehr bemüht mit seinen Veranstaltungen in Deutschland die
British / Schottische Musikalische Kultur unserem Publikum näher zu bringen.
Wir hoffen das wir in Zukunft noch viele solche große Events und Shows zusammen gestalten können. Vielleicht ja auch bald in UK.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Sir,
I would like to write to you, as Chairman of the Royal British Legion Minden Branch, to praise one of your members.
Mr Guinness Adria has become a very good friend of our Band, having been our host and guide at the Loreley Tattoo, held last month. He is a fine, upstanding gentleman who has gained the respect of my cadets and staff, and has proven invaluable when any problems arose, however slight they may be. He is a credit to your Branch, in particular to your Branch Pipes and Drums.
I must also comment on what a fine group of musicians you have in your branch. The dress, deportment and musical ability of your Pipes and Drums are of an exceptional high standard.
It has been a great honour to work with Guinness, and I hope that I shall be able to do so again in the future.
Please pass on my regards to him.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this e-mail.
Kindest regards,
Bob

Dear Mr. Adams,
there is really nobody in my personal community who changes my images about England and Scotland so much as Mr. Adria did it within the last 12 month. At this time we started to prepare the Deutschland Military Tattoo auf Schalke. My first impression of him was the image of a scottish oak. I was very surprised when I was listening him talking and noticed that he is a German. A German guy from the Ruhr Area. Nevertheless and after these 12 month hard teamwork of preparing the biggest German tattoo I still think he is a british or scottish oak. Strong, impressive, convincing...
And he gave me in every meeting quick courses about british and scottish attitudes, ways of thinking and traditions. Because he is convincing as a unique character we made him to an ambassador of our fashion label Global Striker. In our international ambassador team there are only sports professionals from football and boxing – he is the onliest exception. Why? Because he is a british oak. No, he is a scottish oak... No matter...

Dear Ken,
My Corps of Drums has just returned from Schalke after having taken part in the Deutschland Military Tattoo.
This was a fantastic opportunity for my Corps, particularly as we are only 18 months old.
During the 4 days we were at Schalke we met several of your Branch Members and they gave us a very warm welcome.
I would just like to draw your attention to one of your Members, Guinness Adria, who worked tirelessly to deliver one of the best Tattoos that I have ever seen.
It is well known that Guinness has done a great deal to foster Anglo German relations, not only in your area but Nationwide.
The Schalke Tattoo was an excellent example of what he can achieve.  He brought together many elements of the German community and along with the all of the bands from the United Kingdom produced a wonderful harmonious atmosphere of which he can be justifiably proud.
Guinness is a man of outstanding qualities, an asset to your Branch and a great ambassador for Germany and Music as a whole.
Will you please be kind enough to pass on our grateful thanks from everyone in my Corps of Drums for an excellent Tattoo.
Kind Regards
Kevin

Lieber Guinness,
es ist schwierig in Worte zu fassen, was Du uns bedeutest.
Grösse ,Echtheit, Achtung sind Wörter, die uns beim Gedanken an Dich in den Sinn kommen.
So gross, wie Du auf der Bühne wirkst, so herzhaft bist Du uns begegnet.
Wir danken Dir ,dass Du Marco gleich für die Show aufbauen konntest
Dass Du spontan unsere Einladung angenommen hast,war für uns eine ehre.
Mit Dir und Heike Zeit zu verbringen ist unterhaltsam und eine Freude
Dass nicht jeder Moment in St.Gallen erfreulich was, bedauern wir und denken, dass Du die
Show professional zuende geführt hast
Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen
DANKE

I have had the privelige of knowing Guinness for a number of years now,
and can truly say that he is a good friend. Honest and with a huge passion for the highland bagpipe and the role of a Drum Major. Myself, having played as a piper in grade 1, to later becoming a successful Drum Major in competition, and Mass Band duties, I can see a lot of Guinness's desire mirroring my own. He is a big character not to be missed.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Guinness for many years now after we first met at Peine Highland Games in 2008 and have always knowing him to be extremely professional, honorable and efficient in every event we have been involved in together.

Lieber Guinness !

Im letzten Jahr konnte ich Dich in Berlin,St.Gallen und auf der Loreley als Drummajor mit großer Begeisterung erleben.Dein Erscheinungsbild zur jeweiligen Aufführung von " Highland Cathedral " war stets beeindruckend und hat der Show schon fast eine gewisse Filmreife verliehen.
Beim " Loreley - Tattoo " hat deshalb selbst das Fernsehen über Dich einen eigenen Beitrag produziert.

Alles Gute wünscht

Guinness Adria hat massgeblich für den Erfolg vom 1. Tattoo in Sankt Gallen 2012 beigetragen. Dank seinen Kontakten zu verschiedensten Formationen und fachmännischem Wirken und Amten als Senior Drummajor des Tattoo St. Gallen wurde das grösste Indoor-Tattoo der Schweiz von Beginn an zum Erfolg. Wir freuen uns, dass Guinness Adria die nächsten Jahre das Tattoo in St. Gallen als Senior Drummajor wirkt und deshalb das Tattoo St. Gallen noch grösser, besser und bekannter wird.
Danke Guinness!

Guinness Adria a charismatic Drum Major who is known by everyone in the German bagpipe scene. He has been SDM for many of the best Pipebands in Germany.
Many Bands have played under him in The Music Show Scotland where he was the undisputed Audience Magnet. His orginisational Talent have now taken him onto other Venues such as the Tattoos at the Loreley or St.Gallen in Switzerland and this year(2013) he will be performing ''Auf Schalke'' in the Veltin Arena. Hundreds of Pipes and Drums are being recruited for this event. I feel my self honoured to be considered a friend of Guinness and know that all the Venues in which he is involved in will be a huge success.
He is a major factor in in the Piping scene of Germany and has gathered an immense ammount of knowledge which he is willing to share with others with no ulterior motives.
