Brings – traditional flag-bearers of Kölsch pop-rock
Brings is a German-language pop-rock band that sings pretty much exclusively in the local dialect of the Cologne region, known as Kölsch. They play party music and are usually to be found at large open-air festivals, where their exuberant and colourful stage show goes down a treat with the rowdily good-spirited audiences.

Powerpolka with earthy lyrics and a party vibe
Brings get their name simply from the surname of the band leaders, Peter and Stephan Brings. Although one could broadly describe their music as pop-rock, it's far more closely related to traditional German folk music, a sound that the band has referred to as "Powerpolka". Their music manages to incorporate a wide range of other traditional European musical forms as well, such as Gypsy folk melodies and rhythms. These rootsy sounds are then amplified into stadium-filling rock music. This they have taken around the festivals of Germany and Eastern Europe, even hitting the stage at the massive Rock Am Ring Festival. Their entire approach, which has proved so successful with people of all ages, has been to combine earthy music and lyrics with a good-time party vibe and that special German goofy element that is unique to the country's music. Step into a completely different world, where you will feel strangely at home when you get Brings tickets for an open-air music festival near you.
The largest stadium audience for a Cologne band
Brings supposedly had their heyday in the early 1990s, but a hugely successful album in 2000 propelled them to the top of what's known as the "Party Charts" in Germany and they've been a huge live act ever since – a quite remarkable career in fact. They've come to be regarded as Cologne music royalty, not least for their highly successful efforts in popularising Kölsch and the culture of the region in general. They've often shared the stage with other local artists like veteran Kölsch musician and actor, Tommy Engel, as well as more counterculture artists like East German '80s punk icon, Nina Hagen. Few in Cologne will forget the band's 20th anniversary concert at the RheinEnergieStadion, home of 1. FC Köln, which broke the record for largest attendance at a Cologne stadium for a local musician. Brings are clearly kings of their territory, and they happily welcome anyone who just likes to enjoy a good party in the company of an energetic and enthusiastic band that knows how to get the crowd moving.
