Guy Flies - Trumpet

Born in Luxembourg 16/8/1957, it was only 9 years later when Guy choose to enter the world of music as an active part of it. He got his first trumpet in 1968 while he was (and he still is) in the trumpet register of the "Harmonie Municipale of Bettembourg". He also tried out his vocal chords as a singer in "The Studio Band" from 1975 to 1982. He joined the Brass Band in 1982. Over the years his relation to the band has constantly improved, so that now, he just could not imagine life without it!


Jo Steffes - Trumpet

Stepping into his dad's (also a trumpet player) footsteps, Jo made an early start into the world of music. His local "Ouljer Musek" gave 8 year old Jo a cornet, and he started practising. Music lessons in Mensdorf, Junglinster, Grevenmacher and finally at the Luxembourg city Conservatoire turned him into a fine musician. On the way, he abandoned the cornet, and received his first trumpet. Apart from being the 1st trumpet ( and second "chef" and committee member!) of the Ouljer Musek and the Brass band, he also played in the prize winning "Lux Brass" and the "Friends of Brass" quintet.


Raymond Schroeder - Trumpet

Raym's greatest love in life is music, but it took him quite a while to discover that. He did start playing the trumpet in his local "Ouljer Musek" band as a boy of 9, but lost all musical interest at the age of 19. During 12 long years he tried, with some success, to improve his skills as a table tennis player. Having to work in shifts as well, did not encourage him to make a new start as a musician. It took all the persuasive skills of Pit Kieffer, the conductor of the Ouljer Musek in 1995, to lure Raym back to the trumpet. And he has never been without it since. Equipped with enough talent and envy for those playing better than himself, he has improved his skills over the years. As he is playing in a couple of bands now, and regularly being asked to help out in others, music now occupies most of his leisure time - when he is not partying!

Christian Harpes - Bass guitar

Being 7 years old, Christian began to play Trumpet. As he become older and bigger he changed to bigger instruments too, which are the Euphonium (Tuba) and the Bass-guitar. After an amazing career in Rock-Pop business during the 90's and the 2000' years where he played together with famous bands and artists like Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Mike and the Mechanics, Fish, Ezio....... he decided to concentrate now more on Brass Band Music. After the departure of the former bass guitar player of the Moselle Valley Brass Band he changed from Euphoniumplayer to Bassguitarplayer. Christian continues playing both instruments in the Harmonie of Esch-Alzette. (Link: harmoniemunicipaleesch.org)

Tuba


Raoul Origer - Tuba

Raoul, also called Rudi by the members of the Brass Band, is born the 14th of January 1980 in Luxembourg. For the time, he is the youngest Tubaplayer in the Band. When he was nine, he began studying trumpet and one year later he played, until now in the harmonie of Beckerich. At the age of sixteen he changed the instrument and has chosen the Tuba because it was in need of this instrument in the harmonie and in several other musician bands where he plays today. In 2005 he played for the first time in the Moselle Valley Brass Band and he loved until today to have had the chance to be a member of this amazing Band.
