Southern Germany Mini Tour

We had a blast on our mini tour through southern Germany:

Theaterhaus Jazztage Stuttgart and Veitsbronn, thanks for coming!

See you soon, we’re now tinkering with some new song material that we’re already looking forward to presenting to you!

MRBB @ 45. Freiberger Jazztage

Freiberg, thanks for having us!:) We were allowed to play in the worlds oldest (!) municipal theatre! You gave us such a warm hearted welcome, we didn’t want to leave again!
See you soon in Stuttgart or in Franconian Veitsbronn,
Monika and band

MRBB @ Philharmonie Cologne

Cologne, it was our pleasure! Thanks for a spectacular night.
We also had the great honor to meet author Frank Schätzing – naturally, being a team of 20, we didn’t have much trouble “convincing” him to do a selfie with us!:)
Frank Lorentz wrote a wonderful piece for the Welt am Sonntag – here are some of his memories:

“The best thing though, to me, was the music. Played by the Monika Roscher Bigband.”

“[…] she conducted her band and played and sang like I haven’t seen or heard before.”

“Pure magic!”

Zappanale 2018 – Videos!

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!

Hubertussaal Nuremberg

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“:)

Zappanale #29

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,…

Fusion Festival 2018
