BigBand Jazzwecan

The East Tyrolean big band formation Jazzwecan has been enlivening the jazz and blues scene in the district of East Tyrol since 2012. Numerous performances at home and abroad always ensure enthusiasm among the audience. The BigBand, which since 2016 is musically led by Martin Lang (musician, sound engineer, composer), takes the audience into a world of sound across the most diverse styles of BigBand history, from the early 1930s to the pop music of the present. Titles by Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Aretha Franklin, Dua Lipa etc. are a fixed part of the repertoire. The musicians do not live from the music, but for the music! The band's enthusiasm for jazz is always palpable to the audience. Groove, swing and hot Latin rhythms in a relaxed atmosphere are guaranteed.
