The "Pratzbähnt", that's us: A brass band of seven young musicians who try to blow the dust off the image of classical brass music.
With our three trumpets, the saxophone, a trombone, a sousaphone and a drum set, we play everything that comes before our horns. From traditional marches, pop and hard rock numbers to current electro and dance hits. We interpret each piece in our own "splendid" way.
The Pratzbähnt was created in 2007 after a big plate of Flieten and some Viez-Limo in Trier-Irsch. We started with the idea of a new carnival show act. The numerous carnival appearances were soon followed by the first appearances in summer. Meanwhile we are known as "Pratzbähnt" in the whole region. At carnival we have several companies in our repertoire and have played at many wine festivals, company parties and private events.
Our peculiarity is certainly that we offer acrobatic dance performances as lightly as possible while we make music. This has already led to some bruises and damage to the body. But it was worth it. With the connection between cheerful brass music and exuberant dance interludes we manage again and again that old and young dance and celebrate together to our "flared" pieces.
