“One of the best acts we’ve seen in a very long time”. LABrassBanda auf dem Womad-Festival

6000 Tanzende bei LaBrassBanda am 24.Juli auf der WOMAD – Charlton Park – Malmesbury :

“Over at the Siam Tent, having been moved from the main Open Air Stage, were Germany’s LaBrassBanda. I was tempted with a bit of ‘Oompah pah’, I have no idea why as this is not my music at all, I was simply trying to cover as much new and different music as possible. I have never before been so glad to catch an act that I had so few expectation of, these guys were simply amazing and from the opening number it was clear that they were set to be the big surprise hit of the day. They brought a frantic, frenetic and totally unexpected funky afternoon set to WOMAD. Rock, Hip Hop, Ska, Pop, just about everything was covered during this set including the Cure’s ‘Why Can’t I be you’ Salt & Peppa’s ‘Push It’ and ‘I like to move it,move it’, Lemar’s ‘Never Ending Story’ and many, many more. At one point they disappeared into the crowd much to the delight of the heaving audience. What can we say about LaBrassBanda? One of the best acts we’ve seen in a very long time and one that we’d like to see a lot more of, festival bookers take note, these will go down a storm at any festival, get them for next year please.”
