Danube's Banks


Danube’s Banks are six gadjemusicians from the beautiful harbor town of Hamburg, who play contemporary Gypsy Swing with passion. They combine the composing of Django Reinhard und other “Jazz Manouche” interprets with Klezmer Songs, Swing and Jazz Standards, Musetten Waltzes, Hungary “Czardas”, Russian Polka and Balkan Folk. Their style is furthermore influenced by the rhythms of Ska and Reggae. Danube’s Banks plays everlasting, emotional, often improvised, but first of all living music. Read more on Last.fm
Danube’s Banks are six gadjemusicians from the beautiful harbor town of Hamburg, who play contemporary Gypsy Swing with passion. They combine the composing of Django Reinhard und other “Jazz Manouche” interprets with Klezmer Songs, Swing and Jazz Standards, Musetten Waltzes, Hungary “Czardas”, Russian Polka and Balkan Folk. Their style is furthermore influenced by the rhythms of Ska and Reggae. Danube’s Banks plays everlasting, emotional, often improvised, but first of all living music. It’s music from the streets! This band is pushing and motivating, as authentic as personal and without any doubt swinging.

Dragging, sometimes slow, sometimes quick, but restlessly flowing forward. Timo Zett plays the rhythm guitar with the characteristic “la Pompe” touch and enriches the music with brilliant vocal parts. Band label and the booklet comic-sketches are his work as well. Benjamin Dau, as the solo guitar player, tries to reach his idols Django, Bireli Lagrene, Angelo Debarre and Stochelo Rosenberg. But even more, every now and then he switches to his “coconut”-guitar – better known as mandolin.

Alex Szustak plays the standup bass driving even the very last rows to move their feet. Lonz sits on the Cajon, plays Djembe and adds his unique rhythms. Jonathan Wolters whips on his clarinet the gentlest swing solos or he plays his wild mlezmer melodies. Laughing and crying are walking hand in hand.

Jan-Hendrik Erbe on the Saxophon expands the sound of Danube’s Banks with a specific note. To the typical instruments of gyspy swing, the selmer guitars and the clarinet, he adds the fresh-jazzy sound of his tenor sax. In the summer of 2008 the four friends met just to play on the streets. They decided to travel from Hamburg to Bratislava, and after two weeks in the pubs and streets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia they became a band, that’s music is recorded and available on CD.
