CARAVÃNA SUN and Germany’s LABRASSBANDA join forces for unmissable co-headline Australian tour!

With the dust barely settled on their last acclaimed Australian jaunt, Caravãna Sun are gearing up to do it all again, this time bringing the wildly talented LaBrassBanda out to Australian shores to join the party! The highly anticipated co-headline tour will see this dynamic bill make their way up and down the East Coast over ten blistering shows on the ‘Horn Haus Party Tour’, giving audiences a chance to get up close and personal with some of the best brass band music out of Bavaria, as well as receiving a dose of that intense Caravãna Sun magic direct from the source.

This partnership, a cacophony of horns, rhythm, rock and frenetic funk-drenched energy has been in effect since 2017, when both Caravãna Sun and LaBrassBanda embarked on tour through Europe together. From those shows, a strong friendship and shared love for explosive and entertaining live shows was formed and now, it’s Australia’s turn. “Touring with LaBrassBanda is a party 24/7. Every moment is filled with laughter, love and an overall celebration of life. Their live shows are some of the most dynamic and explosive events we’ve ever experienced. Gracing the stage together for the Horn Haus Tour will make for some unforgettable memories, no doubt showered in Bavarian Beer!” Caravãna Sun

2018 was another busy year for Sydney’s, Caravãna Sun, as the band spent the year enjoying the wide embrace of their new EP, Silver Linings, while touring right around the country on an extensive headline tour, as well has playing a slew of popular Australian festivals including WA’s Wave Rock Festival and Celebrate Gold Coast out in Queensland. The band also continued to carve out their international presence in 2018, enjoying a 22 date run through the UK and Europe with their new music and captivating live show.

LaBrassBanda’s reputation as one of the best brass bands to come out of Germany extends far beyond their European homeland, going so far to even land in Zimbabwe and Siberia. With a heady combination of ska, reggae, Bavarian folk and punk in with the expected huge brass sounds that forms the foundation of their musicianship, LaBrassBanda have been embraced eagerly by crowds throughout the US as well as throughout Europe. Celebrating the tenth anniversary in 2017 by touring the world with a new album, aptly titled Around the World, LaBrassBanda have been building up to this Australian trip for some time. Their music breaks the stereotypes of your typical ‘traditional German’ brass band – LaBrassBanda are ready to treat Australians to a musical experience unlike anything we’ve seen yet. “Caravãna Sun, our Australian friends, have been on stage in Germany with us since 2017. They wished [to do] a joint tour of their home in Australia; we were very happy about the invitation, let’s do the ‘Horn Haus Party Tour’! As rock ‘n’ roll live musicians, we’re always looking forward to the next tour. We will celebrate it as if it would be the last!” LaBrassBanda

“The EP gives off a psychedelic vibe touching on a few different feels and capturing the likes and similar sounds of Tame Impala with a hint of Cage The Elephant.”
Forte Magazine

“A catchy, choral one of longing for someone or something or summer.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne (‘Come Back’, 2018)

“100% best track I’ve heard from this band; really sounds like they’re honing in on something special. They work seriously hard too so I’m stoked at the forecast of bigger things ahead.”
Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe (‘Come Back’, 2018)

“…playing their stunning fusion of Fat Freddy’s Drop-inspired progressive dub reggae and ska. Each song provided irresistible grooves that demanded funk faces. The varied band journeyed up and down through vibes and had the audience in the palm of their hands.”
Rhythm Passport (UK)


“With Bavarian trumpets, trombones and didjeridoos, Bavarian brass enthusiasts LaBrassBanda will be taking to conquer the world. They mix even more styles than ever before.”
INTRO Magazine (Germany)

“If you feel bad and the day could not be grayer, put Around The World on the turntable and you will be caught and carried along by the rhythms; everyday life will be colorful and liveable again.”
Vinyl Fan Magazine (Germany)

“Not many bands manage to reach such a diverse audience as LABRASSBANDA. In their music, they combine traditional Bavarian wind music with reggae, techno and hip-hop. Sounds bizarre at first, but works – mainly because of the energy and dedication that the musicians of the formation put into their work.”
Pop Monitor Magazine (Germany)

With praise being heaped on both acts through 2017 and 2018, it makes sense that Caravãna Sun and LaBrassBanda would come together once more, this time on the former’s hometurf, and continue to engage with the same positive momentum already generated in Europe. Make sure the ‘Horn Haus Party’ is one you RSVP to quick. March is almost upon us.
