Beck`s Wood & Brass Stage

Club Forum

A new highlight for brass-music fans was the Beck`s Wood & Brass Stage on the outdoor area. In cooperation with the organizers of the successful ‘Woodstock of Brass Music’, this stage offered an outstanding selection of musicians and bands and was also the place where the new contest “Copa Kapella” took place.

Music groups with up to 10 musicians, of whom at least three play a wind instrument, can enter by sending a video to p r @woodstockderblasmusik .at. Five bands were invited to Musikmesse 2017, to compete on the Beck´s Wood & Brass Stage for an appearance on the main stage of the ‘Woodstock of Wind Music’ open-air festival.

Whether it is party time, festival or concert hall – this extraordinary seven-member ensemble from the Tyrol can look back on numerous major performances over the whole of Europe and has also become well known on radio and television. Since their much acclaimed gig at “Woodstock of Brass Music” and their polka hit, “Von Freund zu Freund”, if not earlier, they have become a real fixture on the scene.

Through their compositions this sextet has succeeded in transforming the epic language of film music into the driving sound of a brass band. The group describes their debut LP, “Backseat Lover”, as an “album full of soundtracks which never were but ought to have been, and could be used in any Tarantino film.”

Da Blechhauf’n

For 15 years this septet has been on the move featuring various stage shows. In an expanded group the band goes its own musical way – and gains high marks with an imposing stage presence. Each of the musicians combines comic talent with professional brass-music performance. Thus at its concerts Da Blechhauf’n emanates pure joie de vivre.

Bullhorns

The Bullhorns take songs by acts such as the Beatles, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple and clothe them in an entirely new sound. The nine-member ensemble recently released its first LP, an album entitled “Batang”, with support from Jazz superstar James Morrison.

Seven brass musicians and a drummer come together to ensure a great party mood. The boys have no respect for the conventions of traditional brass music, instead they are incorporating elements of rock, pop and hip-hop into their arrangements. This original mix is loved by their fans well beyond the woodwind and brass music scene.

Brass2Go

Brass2Go is a New Orleans style Brassband. It presents New Orleans Originals, Disco Hits as well as Evergreens of Rock and Pop in their own arrangements.

Their groovy sounds and solo passages get supported by stunning show and comedy events, while their red suits complete this all-round-package.
