Barbara Roberts & Band
Charming, spirited and soulful – that's Barbara Roberts. She guarantees absolute musicality and hypnotizes her audience with her dynamic vocal range from softly melting to highly expressive. You can't help but swing!
The charismatic "Bavarian with a direct line to the soul of jazz" is well known for her warm and velvety voice. A swinging rhythm, clear intonation and articulation as well as expressiveness and a deep understanding of lyrics, melody and harmonies characterize her interpretations. Mark Murphy called her a "jazz stylist" – a singer who has found her own style.
Together with her superb musicians Max Braun (sax), Davide Roberts (p), Rudi Schiessl (b) and Thomas Elwenspoek (dr) she creates an intimate atmosphere – full of energy but also relaxed, exciting and calm, exhilarating and melancholy. For many years this band was a regular item in Munich Jazzclub Unterfahrt's program.
Their repertoire includes countless (jazz) hits of the past century – from Gershwin to Cole Porter, Bacharach & David, Jobim to the Beatles. Besides general jazz programs, special tribute programs for composers or wonderful singers like Billie Holiday, Chet Baker or Marilyn Monroe are very popular with the audience.
You may book us for all occasions. Whether it be a jazz club, piano bar, concert hall, wedding, birthday or a jazz festival – we'll be happy to play for you with the highest level of professionality.
We are not only available as a jazz quintet but also in other formations like quartet, trio or just duo (voc/p) or with other instruments.
