About

BRASSTA LA VISTA

An intense, thriving and energetic brass experience. With Brassta la Vista’s first album you will not be able to sit still. An album with songs that all could be the soundtrack of your holiday. Dance along and enjoy the freshest ska-brass sensation from the Netherlands.

“One performance by Brassta La Vista brought together the young and the old, many of whom didn’t make use of the comfy sofas and chairs arranged around the band like a living room setting because the music was swinging too hard for anyone to be able to sit still.” (www.to10.nl)

After meeting each other in various Dutch bands including the Dutch National Youth Jazz Orchestra eight young musicians found out that they shared the passion of making people go nuts; Brassta la Vista was born. In 2015 they released their debut EP and after that they played on many festivals including Jazz in Duketown in Den Bosch and the famous Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam. Now, two years later, it’s time for the next step. For their album ‘Honger’ Brassta la Vista recorded nine original Ska tracks loaded with thriving solo’s that will make you loose your mind.
