bohemian / dance rock

This 5 piece german Band from Hamburg/Germany have developed a unique genre that is now known as Bohemian/Dance Rock.
Gathering great momentum on their musical trail they’ve traveled all around the world looking back on over 2000 gigs.

DenManTau from Hamburg, Germany, that has travelled the globe in pursuit of sharing their messages with the world. The band found their way to the heart of the musical empire in California over three years ago with the help of their vehicle, Flinch, an ’89 Chevy van.

Although the band has travelled all over the world, their hearts still remain in Hamburg. The name DenManTau originates from a dying language in northern Germany often used by sailors, the word meaning, “all hands on deck.” This paints the picture of what DenManTau represents: pulling together to help bring life to what they perceive as a dying world. Paul Weber, lead singer and trumpeter of DenManTau, found his passion at a young age. Playing the trumpet since he was only six and performing at the age of eight, it was clear his calling was music. “I started the band when I was just 13 years old,” Weber said. “I felt compelled to do this and that my purpose was devoted to music.” DenManTau developed a unique sound over the years that is universally appealing to the public.

They implement folk, funk, jazz and rock, and incorporate a diverse variety of rhythms into their music. This distinct genre of music has been identified as bohemian dance rock.
