We are back from our first two concerts 2015 – Singen and Nuremberg, we had a lot of fun !! It was very exciting for us because we played several completely new pieces such as Caribbean Delirium, the Bird Suite: Full Moon Theatre and our techno song Ghosts of the Century. The audience was overwhelming, (was it because of the incredible outfits of the trumpet players?:) – now we can not wait to play our new set live again! We are in the middle of planning concerts for 2015, new dates will be announced here soon,
We look forward to seeing you,
all the best!
