They convince their fans every time with their down-to-earth character and great show. For this they have already received numerous international and national awards in the category “Best Music Show”.

Max Oppel (born 1974) is a German TV and radio journalist. He is news anchor on Sat.1-Frühstücksfernsehen and gained experiences as moderator at Deutschlandfunk Kultur (magazine “Kompressor”) and as a moderator and reporter for the news of Deutsche Welle (DW) in Berlin.

Andrej Hermlin and his Swing Dance Orchestra

The Swing Dance Orchestra has been one of the leading orchestras of its kind for years. It consists of 18 artists and is directed by Andrej Hermlin. The Hermlin family seems to have the music in their blood, so the children include David and Rachel Hermlin to the main soloists of the orchestra. Above all, the group focuses on authenticity and proves its musical affinity by refraining from electrical amplification. Enjoy the band’s 18th album and enjoy the musical sound of Glen Millers to Frank Sinatra.

Duke Brass

Pop, rock and jazz are the likes of Bigband Dukebrass. They play since 2015 with their eleven-member team and raise the mood at every event. With their special way, their soft sounds and aggressive sounds, they convince familiar songs like Beat it. They modernize the brass band and make it accessible to everyone. Feel the band’s passion and treat yourself to a musical treat at our Presseball.

Ralf von der Moranzin

Let me entertain you … is the motto and program. The face of Harry’s New York Bar Berlin enriches every event with its extraordinary performance.
“Mastering his instrument is the duty of a professional musician to entertain his audience well.” (Ralf von der Moranzin)

Sibylle Briner

At the age of 5 she received piano lessons for the first time. As a 12-year-old she played her first public solo concert. She won first prize at the Hamburg Steinway Competition and then began studying piano.
We are very happy that she plays at this year’s ball for our guests.

Tanzschule Broadway

As an organizer of various events and championships, the dance school Broadway will open the Presseball Berlin with 17 debutant pairs. She expects a musically historical medley of the last years. Feel the band’s passion and treat yourself to a musical treat at our Presseball.
