Tobias Olbrich, or simply Tobi is the second youngest of the band. Still, Tobi’s birth year is well into the last century, or more accurately, the same year Deep Purple released her Machine Head album.
Tobias is very interested in history, politics, food, beer and effect pedals. In his youth, Tobi was an active athlete. Today he mainly sits in his studio and works on new song material.
At Dr. NICK serves the Gibson Les Paul to Tobi and also sings very loudly to drown out his 77W 100W Marshall Super Lead amp.
When Tobias is not composing or playing guitar, he teaches others, mostly women, how to play the guitar. His family, however, comes first despite his music. In autumn you can see Tobias roam through the forests of Bavaria, where he is always looking for something.
He was born on 25.11.1965 in Neumarkt / Opf. After attending school, he worked as a construction worker for four years before going back to school and completing his studies in social pedagogy.
After a ten-year stay in Ingolstadt, he moved back to his hometown Neumarkt. There he married and now he is allowed to call two sweet children his own. The musical career was marked by various bands. Acoustic and electric. His sound at Dr. Nick creates a ’68 Les Paul Goldtop in conjunction with a Mesa Rectifier.
Since he did not have the necessary patience as a social pedagogue, he earned his money since graduating as a guitar teacher, which he still likes to do today. In his free time, if available, he likes to turn into the Western hero Wild Bullfrog or Knight Taurus from the tower.
