On Friday, December 4, Brassrock was selected to perform at the annual Christmas market in Bonn. For nearly an hour the big band thrilled the large crowd of evening market-goers at Bottlerplatz/Vivatgasse with swinging big band music.
Brassrock is Bad Godesberg Integrated School’s flagship band (Gesamtschule). The ensemble is made up of 15-20 talented musicians, aged between 13 and 18 years, and includes brass, guitar and woodwind players as well as keyboarders, percussionists and female vocals. The band, fronted by Martin Schlu, tutor and musician (e.g. g. tb, tu), performs music from big-band classics to modern popular charts. Brassrock has built up quite a large repertoire and can be booked for live sessions up to 3 hours in length.
