The high standard and creativity of the performances of the Budapest Ragtime Band have made them one of the most prestigious jazz bands in Hungary.
The repertoire of the ensemble includes pieces of traditional ragtime and classical music, swing melodies and dixieland music. Besides nurturing the traditions of ragtime music, they also perform pieces of other traditional American genres.
Their unique and extraordinary shows often include humorous adaptations and parodies of classical music pieces like Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz, Khachaturian’s Sword Dance, Brahms’ Hungarian Dances and the Monti Csardas.
The Budapest Ragtime Band usually gives more than 100 concerts per year – both in Hungary and abroad. Previously they have performed at the Great Hall of the Berlin Philharmony, made tours in England,the USA and in the Canary Islands, as well as playing in festivals and jazz clubs in Germany, Switzerland, Poland and Italy.
