LaBrassBanda is a Bavarian brass band, inspired by Youngblood Brass Band, but with added in “Lederhosen” and Bavarian lyrics. They play a combination of Brass, reggae, Punk, Gibsy, Jazz and techno with a typical Bavarian note. The lyrics are about beer, girls and parties.

Before 2007, no-one would probably have thought it possible this kind of outfit to stand the test of the biggest European festivals. LaBrassBanda can, and have proven it at Roskilde, Hurricane and Southside, at the Sziget, as headliners at the Chiemsee Reggae, and many others. Sure, their biggest solo show at the Olympiahalle in Munich was sheer madness as well. There, in front of 10,000 people, they demonstrated arena and stadium quality.

They cast everything that characterises them into a single song: musical skill, change of tempo and rhythm, Bavarian lyrics, extraordinary arrangement, charisma, and an energy that sweeps the audience onto their feet and dancing. We can talk and write about LaBrassBanda, however to understand them, you have to see them live.

The Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks.
