Dej š'en litro (which can be roughly translated as "Gimme one more litre", a common way of ordering wine in these parts) Brass Band was founded by accident in Ljubljana in 1999: the first four members met at a student party where they simply played some songs together. Later on, other experienced brass musicians from the Primorska region joined the group. Today the group has a total of 26 musicians, although each performance usually involves around 13 players.

The band's members are: Rok Nemanič, Matej Bažec, Miha Kovačič (trumpets), Bojan Volk, Damjan Jurič, Mitja Mahnič (saxophones), Bojan Krajšek, Nejc Kovačič (baritone), Matija Mlakar (trombone), Jernej Žakelj, Jure Nemec (tube) and Damijan Štolfa, David Šavle (percussion).


Repertoire

Its repertoire consists of different genres of music, from Slovene folk music and the traditional ethnic music of the Balkan region to jazz, pop and disco compositions. This music is played exclusively on brass instruments and percussion; the ensemble does not need any electrical equipment for its performances and can therefore move around freely within the audience and make the spirit of the whole performance more lively and interactive. In 2008 the band released its first album Na mizo.

Performances

The Dej še'n litro Brass Band annually performs about 25 concerts all around Slovenia and Europe (Italy, Croatia, Ireland, France, so far). They recently won second prize at the celebrated International Festival of Ethnic Music in Guča (Dragačevo region), Serbia. They also made a guest appearance at the Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival in Ljubljana and at both the Jazz Cerkno Festival and Keltika International Festival (run by the same organiser, Jazz Cerkno Institute). In the past the band has also performed at Lent Festival in Maribor, at Klub Gromka in Ljubljana's Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone, at a charity concert for the town of Bohinjska Bistrica after floods in the Bohinj region left millions of Euro in damage, and at Gronau Jazzfestival in Germany.
