LaBrassBanda is more than the typical North American stereotype of traditional German sounds often heard at beer festivals around the world. The band’s style is a wild mix of modern Bavarian folk music, ska, punk, techno, reggae and, of course, brass. Thanks to the diverse sound ingredients, the outcome is as colourful as a well-shaked cocktail – fast, energetic, and hard to understand for everyone who did not grow up in Germany’s southern state called Bavaria. This, however, does not detract LaBrassBanda’s success.
In 2013, they gained nationwide popularity when participating at the Eurovision Song Contest preliminaries. Their album “Europa“ in the same year made it into the top three of the German charts. Regional music is definitely cool again.
In 2017, the band celebrated their ten-year anniversary not only by releasing the album “Around the World”, but by actually making a 6-week tour around the world, impressing new fans on five continents. This hasn’t been their last trip beyond Bavarian borders. The musicians gave concerts in the United States, Zimbabwe, several European countries and they played Asia and Australia again in 2018. They definitely love to mingle and party with different cultures from all over the globe, which probably helps them create their unique sound.
LaBrassBanda are always very welcome all over Europe. Berlin, Hamburg and Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna and many more are just some of the locations where the group is performing once again on their Brass Fire Tour in 2023. And of course festivals everywhere in the summer. Their combination of tradition and modern style cannot only be heard in their merry crossover sound, but also when looking at the band’s favorite concert outfits: lederhosen, casual T-shirts and no shoes.
The, since 2021, eight band members are more than representatives of what Bavarian culture and tradition can look like. They are ambassadors of Germany’s diverse and modern pop music scene, with danceable and fun tunes as well as awesome live shows – quite different from any dusty clichés.
