Under the motto Time to Party, the Graz-born Austrian Brassband Buena Banda has been evolving for more than a decade between different genres and musical styles.
From the tradition of New Orleans, through the folk music of their homeland, to the Grooves of today’s hits, Buena Banda does not want to define itself in one style.
Multi-culti from its origins to the present.
Its members from Austria, Italy and Croatia are always ready to integrate lyrics and music from their origins. From Billie Eilish Bad guy Cover, to a ballad Baba by Bilderbuch, or the rhythmic madness of Bucovina to absurd Performances like Junky Blues or Limbo Live Competition: „We want to surprise our audiences! We never leave them quiet!“
After huge evolutions during this long period Buena Banda never tires of evolving musically.

Nicolò Loro Ravenni is a saxophone player from Padua, Italy. He is based in Graz, Austria where he plays with multiple projects.
“I have always known that I wanted to create, to compose, to play an instrument, to be on a stage, to start with an audience. But I still haven’t quite figured out what I really like, so: always searching!”
Marko Šolman is a trumpet player from Croatia. He leads his early jazz band The Prohibition Stompers in Graz, Austria and is a regular member of the Croatian Radiotelevision Jazz Orchestra in Zagreb, Croatia.
Since 2019, the Styrian (baritone) saxophonist Florian Bauer has been playing with Buena Banda. Deep tones, fat sound, and a healthy dose of groove – that’s his trademark.
Georg, also known as “Joe,” brings the distinctive sound to the stage as our sousaphonist in the band. His funky lines and tight riffs lay down the pulsating foundation for our unique vibe, and his cool style and positive spirit make him the ultimate groove-bringer in our crew, while also being a true team player.
