Brown Sugar Society

Brown Sugar Society is an idea of Francesca Pichel (vocals and guitar) and Rocco Brunori (trumpet, percussion and bass) that was developed while travelling for two years. After living and traveling in Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand, Australia and UK they decided to create a collective of musicians and artists encountered on the way to express their potential. The band exists in many shapes, depending on a situation. From duo to orchestra it takes its influences and energies from the components and guests that are playing.


In this occasion they will perform in duo, Francesca on guitar and Rocco on trumpet, bass and percussion. They will play their own music and their favorite songs of pop- and jazzrepertoire.
