Resurrecting the sounds of former days, The Resident Alien Big Band is Munich’s most diverse musical ensemble. Over eight nationalities contribute their distinct backgrounds to reinterpret classics ranging from Count Basie to James Brown. The result is a unique blend of bossa nova-inspired bass lines, funky horns, tight guitar riffs, and infectiously charismatic vocals.
Founded in 2010, the group regularly performs at venues large and small in and around Munich. Past and regular gigs include:
München Stadtgründungsfest (Munich Founding Festival), Marienplatz
Munich Unplugged festival, Hofbräuhaus Munich
Munich Sessions Summerfest, Rindermarkt Munich
The Lion’s Club Summer Ball, Künstlerhaus Munich
The Irish Business Network Winter Ball
The summer festival of the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry
Corporate Functions and weddings
…and many more.
In 2016, ESME e.V. presented the first ever Munich Summer Ball, with the Resident Aliens providing the musical entertainment throughout the evening.
