The Allotria Jazz Band will be swinging through 2017. In June 2014 our last CD "ALL IN" has been released. This is the nineteenth LP/CD production in the Band's history. On the new recording you also can hear our new trombone player Mathias Götz, who joined us 4 years before.
After the success of our traditional New Year's gala-concert in the Künstlerhaus am Lenbachplatz in Munich, we are planning to do a repeat concert on the 1st of January 2018 again at the time of 15:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at Muenchen Ticket, phone 089 54818181. Please, ask for "Blutenburger Konzerte" - "Neujahrskonzert der Allotria Jazz Band".
You perhaps are aware of the fact that since 1900 the "Künstlerhaus am Lenbachplatz" is the home of the "Künstlergesellschaft Allotria"(Artists Society Allotria) - founded 1873 by artists, painters, cartoonists, poets and architects like Kaulbach, Lenbach, Stuck, Seidl and even Wilhelm Busch. So our jazz band, established in 1969 in Munich's Maxvorstadt, in a way has found the way back to its artistic roots.
July 13th, 2017: Sad news for all friends of Allotria: Today Fritz Stewens passed away. He was one of the founders of the Allotria Jazz Band in 1969, a special character of the traditional jazz scene in Munich and for years the layout of Allotria. We loved him and miss him.
