Brass Riot at Gretchen / Saturday, 15.7.2023

With energetic saxophone solos, catchy drum beats and well-chosen synthesizers, Brass Riot offer an unusual mix of punk, jazz and electronic music that has won them a fan base far beyond genre boundaries.

The trio around Constantin von Estorff (Sax), Simon Sasse (Drums) and Carl Weiß (Sax) have been a band since their school days in Lüneburg. What started there as street music became a permanent and sought-after formation through the proximity to political initiatives, above all the Fridays-For-Future movement, and appearances at countless demonstrations.

The band’s name is slightly misleading, as “brass” in music refers to brass instruments such as the trumpet or tuba, even though most brass bands always include a saxophone. Moreover, the word “brass” means something in the German language, which in turn fits perfectly with this young, energetic trio: Fury.
