Insomnia Brass Band

„…it’s great fun, you want to dance pogo to it. More of this please!“ Hans-Jürgen Schaal, Jazzthetik
„Calypsomanic vitality in XXL“ Rigobert Dittmann, Bad Alchemy

Anke Lucks – trombone
Almut Schlichting – baritone saxophone
Christian Marien – drums

Baritone saxophonist Almut Schlichting, trombonist Anke Lucks, and drummer Christian Marien are a miniature brass band, transcending its compact size to produce a raucous, ebullient sound one might expect from a much larger ensemble.more

The Insomnia Brass Band was founded in spring 2017 during a working scholarship of the Berlin Senate and developed its sound around the playing material composed by Lucks and Schlichting. Since 2018 the band has been touring with numerous concerts in jazz clubs and at festivals. With another Senate scholarship, the trio has now recorded their first CD „Late Night Kitchen“ – it was released on November 27, 2020 on Tiger Moon Records!
