The Marching Bandits were founded in 2005 by composer Alexander Kowalsky and percussionist Herk Röpe. The band consists of a core team of professional brass players, percussionists, singers and dancers. Depending on the situation and event, the whole group can be anywhere from 10 to 25 artists, with musicians and dancers.

The whole appearance of the Marching Bandits, including their outfit and movement can be adapted to a certain event or project. A specialty is that this band doesn’t even need a stage, no lighting and no power, they are totally independent of any location, including the vocals which can be amplified by a battery powered, portable amplifier.

This marching band plays own versions of famous songs (from La Bamba to Roma Rapsody and Also sprach Zarathustra) with a lot of swing that leaves the audience no other choice than to join in and move with the beat.


A show full of famous songs in a new style.
Hits like I feel good, Also sprach Zarathustra, Roma Rhapsody, La Bamba and many more…

Additional Information

Party to Go:
During the concerts, musical arrangements are created that destroy the traditional form of a concert. Instead of sitting in front of the band, the audience gets to be a part of it and finds itself in the midst of the party.

Walking acts:
The Matching Bandits are constantly on the move. This creates the possibility to use choreographies adapted to the customer’s wishes. An example would be that the band moves with the rhythm, stops, changes direction, moves sideways or backwards when the audience makes e.g. whistling sounds or claps.

Because of different durations of events and multiple instrumentation possibilities, it is unfortunately not possible for the artist to state a lump sum fee for every event.
Therefore we would ask you to make an unaccommodating request, so that the artist
can make a tailored offer for your event.
