Since 2007 the Fischermanns Orchestra has been running through the streets, spicing up stages and festivals all over Europe. The incredible, unstoppable Fischermanns Orchestra is always on the move, musically free and footloose. The Fischermanns Orchestra draws upon many different cultural influences and inspiration to form its own distinctive sound, which is in constant flux, changing as the musical evolution takes its course. A conscious risk is taken to sail through deep waters without compromise.
The freshness enthusiasm and abandon with which the Fischermanns Orchestra appears is seldom found today. It is precisely this joy of playing that is the essence of any music that is able to touch the heart.
- Niklaus (Knox) Troxler, organizer Jazz in Willisau (Switzerland)
The Fischermanns Orchestra manages seemingly effortless to create splendid moments of collective happiness by wildly challenging themselfs and the audience, playing unpredictable performances of fairly complex music.
- Phillippe Bischof, Director Pro Helvetia
It's a special pleasure to see and to hear the Fischermanns Orchestra. A joyful experience to those, who are lucky enough to witness this band's performances.

The Fischermanns Orchestra is one of the most refreshing large formations with an amazing "Spirit" and ravishing joy.
- Roberto Domeniconi, musician
In their showcase at the Jazzahead 2015 in Bremen the Fischermanns Orchestra created immediate and sometime uninhibited fireworks with a mild conduction form allowing spontaneity, surprising turns, and nice skew sounds.
