Jazzrausch Bigband Jazzrausch Bigband

„A meltdown of bigband sound with house and techno music.“ (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

With an average of 120 concerts a year, troughout Europe and visiting America, Asia and Africa, the Jazzrausch Bigband is one of the busiest bigbands of Europe. With „power, groove and enormous stage presence“ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), the band equally reaches audiences from jazz and electronic music.

The driving forces behind the Jazzrausch Bigband project are the Munich-based trombonist and music manager Roman Sladek and the guitarist and composer Leonhard Kuhn, also living in Munich. The nucleus and starting point of the musical journey is a Munich institution: the „Harry Klein“, one of the most renowned electro clubs in Europe. In 2015, just one year after its founding, JRBB became artist in residence at the club – and the young Munich audience went nuts. A big band in the Techno Club! Totally unique! For Munich and the world! Soon, the stages are getting bigger, the band is selling out rock venues like the Munich Muffathalle, as well as classical music temples like the Munich Philharmonic and is performing at major festivals all over Germany. Tours soon take them to the Lincoln Center in New York, the JZ Festival in Shanghai, the Safaricom International Jazz Festival in Nairobi, the Ural Music Night in Yekaterinburg and the SXSW Music Festival in Austin and others.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
