Back on tour – May 2016

Hello, it’s US! Orkestra del Sol, your favourite PUGILISTSAS of POLKA are returning for another season of musical madness, MAYHEM and HONKSTEP. As with every new edition of the Orkestra, we will have brand new tunes, characters and stories for your DELECTATION. This year, we are kicking off with a VERY SPECIAL set of shows taking on the CRÉME DE LA CRÉME of the UK’s street bands in 4 head-to-head ‘BRASS-OFFS’ that will challenge the very best of you HONKSTEPPERS to stay off the dance floor. GET READY Brighton, Taunton, Penrith and Oxford – the gloves are off and we’re ON OUR WAY!!


Check out the gigs page for all upcoming dates and tickets etc.

Orkestra del Sol at Kelburn Garden Party

It’s an exciting FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT…. and not just any festival. It’s the UTTERLY EXQUISITE Kelburn Garden Party! We have been waiting to play this since it began, and we’re very pleased to announce we’ll be closing the Square Stage on the Sunday night this July. And what a line up for the weekend! We’re polishing our dancing shoes already…

Kelburn Festival 2015

Danke Berlin!

Orkestra del Sol at the Badehaus, Berlin

Thanks to all who came out to see us in Berlin, at all at the Badehaus for looking after us so well! That was our last gig for the year… What will 2014 hold? Watch this space…

Orkestra del Sol RETURNS in 2013!!

It’s been a while since our instruments were put to bed in Capitanji’s mountain hideaway. A good long while. It took us much longer than expected to earn our bus money to travel back to find them. Sincero Minimo and Olga were lost along the way. Lorenzo is missing In Acton. But did we find our instruments, or did they find us….? FIND OUT HERE, in our latest VIDEO SPECTACLE!

ORKESTRA DEL SOL, your favourite brassologists of the musical meadow, couldn’t let you, OUR FANS, go any longer without US. Our fingers and toes were itchy (but that was easily cleared up by a special powder you get at the chemist), our hearts yearned for the taste of your smiling faces, your dancing shoes and your palpable excitement.  WE HAVE TO PLAY FOR YOU AGAIN!!! And so here it is, a delightfully downsized 2013 tour of small but beautiful proportions. We hope that somewhere on the road you will be able to catch us for your favourite mix of BIG AND BRASSY TUNES that we still call HONKSTEP.

WEDS AUG 7 : Fringe by the Sea (North Berwick), 4pm.
SAT AUG 10 : Boomtown Fair, 3-4pm Main Stage.
THURS AUG 22 : Doune The Rabbit Hole, 10-11pm.
FRI AUG 23 : Towersey Festival, Oxfordshire.

FANS – can you give the Orkestra a helping hand? We were to be playing a festival in the South of England on Sat 24h August, but our gig has fallen through. Do you have a local venue, festival or party that might want to book us? All possibilities considered – email Marco via the band website.

See you soon! Your friends,

Orkestra del Sol
