The Band

Brass, saxes and drums. That’s the short recipe for Copenhagen Showband. 25 young musicians, who love performing and entertaining as many people as possible with good music.

With this crew, the band has the power to play for hundreds of people without using one single wire. Copenhagen Showband is 100% unplugged and 100% mobile.

This makes the band the most flexible supplier of live party music in Denmark - if needed the band can perform 'in the middle of nowhere' or move from place to place quickly.

Copenhagen Showband was established in 2005 and from the very beginning they were out performing very often. This has given a lot of routine in the band, which is seen in the ability to entertain the audience.


The Philosophy

The purpose with the band is to revolutionize and “dust off” the orchestra music in Denmark – a mission so far completed with great success. Since the foundation of Copenhagen Showband, the below philosophy has been the foundation stone in anything the band has done:

The main purpose of Copenhagen Showband is to entertain and enjoy people. The band doesn’t just play the music – they perform with the music. There is something for both your eyes and your ears.

Copenhagen Showband plays the music, the audience wants to hear, and they play it where the audience is. Since there are no tight wires, the band can perform anywhere. Music comes to the audience – not the other way around.

The philosophy is that the joy brings out the good music experience. This goes for the musicians as well as for the arranger and the audience. A joy brought out by touching all senses.

As Copenhagen Showband has an uncommon line-up, it’s difficult to buy standard arrangements. Therefore most of the music has been arranged especially for the band giving the band a unique musical profile where the music you think you know will suddenly change into something unexpected.

The Show

When Copenhagen Showband describes their charming show, they use three words:

Music, entertainment and performance.

Always professional but at the same time totally relaxed, informal and incredibly festive.

Once the 25 musicians enter the stage or the street, it’s never boring and you never know what’s coming. The music and the stage show is on full throttle, and all of the floor is used. Copenhagen Showband won’t stay on the stage for long – the musicians will come out among the audience making the experience more present for everyone. This is music in 3D.

Reactions from the audience

Copenhagen Showband has been met with positive reactions and good reviews from everyone. Here’s an example the band received per e-mail from an enthusiastic, English tourist after a show at “Børsen Pub” in Svendborg:

”It is my luck and honour to have seen and heard the band perform there. They we absolutely fantastic....this is the best show I have ever seen....so full of life and energy.”

And after having spiced up a party for students at the Roskilde University, a student gave the following comment to one of the videos with the band on YouTube:

”Video doesn’t do these guys justice. You gotta see them live – that’s amazing.”
