Known for their Austrian sense of humor, unique instruments and virtuosic brass artistry, Mnozil Brass is a septet that specializes in classical music, jazz standards and popular hits. Between songs, the group adds in elements of slapstick comedy and witty scenes which have elicited comparisons to the likes of Monty Python by numerous critics.

The ensemble, founded in 1992, was nominated for the Amadeus Austrian Music Award, and won the Salzburger Stier Cabaret Price in 2006. It has recorded eight albums and toured internationally to great acclaim. Their quirky instruments, such as the customized rotary valved trumpet or the bass trumpet, and their mix of humor with music make them a one-of-a-kind band.
