The Jazzrausch Bigband
is the world's first resident big band of a world-renowned techno club. Founded 2014 in Munich, this big band has been quietly revolutionizing the German club scene with endlessly inventive performances. Their schedule includes more than 100 annual concerts and has already taken them to the Lincoln Center NYC, the JZ Festival in Shanghai, the Munich Philharmonic Hall and the Festival Da Jazz in St. Moritz. At their live big band techno shows, it comes to a musical meltdown, where the creativity and sound diversity of a jazz big band meets the impressive clarity of a techno club – always surprising, always danceable! Composer and arranger of the music is Leonhard Kuhn. Bandleader and manager of the Jazzrausch Bigband is Roman Sladek. With German fans already won over, the band has now begun to attract an international audience.
„They validated their reputation as one of the world’s most distinctive and adrenalizing dance outfits. What was shocking, and gloriously refreshing right from the first hammerhead beats of the kickdrum, was that this band swings. Which completely sets them apart from the machines and the would-be cyborgs who man them. If this is the future of EDM, it’s this band’s ODM that’s going to replace it – that’s a big O for Organic.“ – The New York Music Daily about US debut of the Jazzrausch Bigband at the Lincoln Center in NYC.
