We played at the wonderful Zappanale this summer – here are some live videos: the first one is our song “Wüste”, where our soprano saxophone player Jan Kiesewetter rips it up!
The second video is “Illusion”, with our key master of enchantment, Josef Reßle, who is introducing the song with a magical solo, and Burning Man Michael Schreiber on tenor saxophone who is setting the stage ablaze fueled by some fired up drumming by Silvan Strauß!:)
The third one is “Terror Tango”. It’s one of my favorites and is about the unnerving constant sonic exposure of today that you can’t escape from. Wonderful solos by Jasmin Gundermann, Jakob Grimm, Alistair Duncan, Leonhard Kuhn and Matthias Lindermayr!
It was amazing to play at Hubertussaal Nuremberg again, thanks to everyone who showed up! We played two new pieces, one with an infernal drum and bass battle (Leif and Ferdinand) and we are so happy about the great concert review by Nuremberg Nachrichten …”the most crazy and virtuoso Brass Band around“:)
It was a great pleasure to play at Zappanale Festival – „Don’t accept any substitute !“ A Big Thanks to Bad Doberan, an awesome festival, and a wonderful audience! Have a lovely summer, and see you in Nuremberg on Sept.15 at Hubertussaal!
Monika und die Bigband
p.s. Our pianist Josef has a similar beard,…
Truelly one of the most inspiring places to be!

Its been an amazing Russia Tour with this Band!
We played in one of the craziest concert locations ever, a burned down church, St Petersburg is just stunning. We had a very exciting time there, from Germany to St Petersburg with Love!

This was a great interview with Anders Radlmaier from Nuremberg Curt magazine about Music and Theatre, Politics, Freedom and Arts. There was a super fun moment during the interview when a bunch of people dressed up for carnival came walking through the place like a polonaise, singing and screaming german carnival songs! Photos are by Cris Civitillo.
We love this place and it is fun to play there every time!
Later I met with Michael Scheiner for a really nice chat about music, he wrote the article about the concert in Regensburg at Leerer Beutel. It was a great evening!
