James and Declan have been ‘Practically Married’ since April 2015, a name proudly awarded to them due to their ability to spend time together almost every day with only minor frustrations, and the fact that they play almost every concert together.
Since 2015 they have collaborated with Vilde&Inga, Tobias Delius, John Hollenbeck, Max Andrzejewski, João Lopes Pereira, Eric Vaughn and many more, and have become a regular fixture on the Berlin swing dance scene, performing with Ugo Alunni, Eldar Tsalikov, Charles Fréchette and Dima Bondarev. Associated acts include the award-winning Rachel Sermanni, jazz trio The Good Old Good Ones with Mirna Bogdanović and improv-trio FROG with Fabiana Striffler.
From 2018 they curate and perform a monthly concert series at the very special place where their relationship originally bloomed – Donau115! Since the honeymoon phase is over, each month in 2018 will feature a different special guest to spice things up. Come one come all!
