‘Boogie Banausen’ – that are not only Lorenz and Dennis but also their big love for music from long past days, the certain feel of rhythm and swing, paired with exuberant joy of playing. Together with drummer Michael they perform old classic and special tidbits of the Rock’n’Roll era.

With sax, piano and drums the three ‘Banausen’ bring their audience back to the basics of Rock ‘n Roll and Boogies, raw, without technical bells and whistles.

The two teenagers Dennis (16) and Lorenz (15) met on the road at the Firebirds Festival in the summer of 2016. Due to the quite large distance between both hometowns, they rehearsed via WhatsApp & Skype. The swinging, rocking and boisterous show can not only be seen on festivals all around Germany, but also in France, Belgium or at the legendary ‘Rhythm Riot’ in the UK this year.

Who are we?




At the age of 7, the now 15-year-old student from Leinefelde, Germany, began his education for the soprano saxophone at the ‘Eichsfeld Music School’. His out of the ordinary talent and love for music was discovered quickly.

Classical competitions such as ‘Youth Music’ and numerous Jazz workshops as well as performances on small and bigger stages followed soon. Due to his passion for music and the lifestyle of the 50ies, guest appearances with well-known Rock ‘n Roll bands like “Mister Twist” and “The Firebirds” soon began.

Whether for private or public occasions, in the saxophone quintet ‘Die Saxerotiker’, or in larger ensembles , Lorenz proves his talent regularly.

Dennis Taubner


At the age of 6, Dennis stumbled across his grandfathers old accordion.
Heavy lessons in folk music weren’t his thing. So without a teacher, his mother’s good nerves while practicing daily (AC/DC among others) and much enthusiasm, his passion brought him to Rock ´ Roll.
Dennis first played solo locally until fortune brought him together with Lorenz. They hit it off instantly and even with the distance they developed their own sound without much practice.
Along the way Dennis learned to play the drums and the piano. Paired with his unmistakable voice, performing from Jerry Lee Lewis up to Elvis Presley, he’s the perfect Boogie Banause.

Michael Seyfarth


His Rock ‘n Roll career started with dancing. Due to his growing interest in Rock ‘n Roll and his joy in music he became a drummer for the rockabilly band “Jumblers” in 1998. Since then he has played for many other bands, like ‘The Wildwood Boys’, ‘Ray Allen’ or ‘the Barracudas’. It’s impossible to imagine the Rock ‘n Roll music scene without him. His favorite instrument remains the drums even though the double bass and the rhythm guitar grew on him as well.

Michael’s joy on stage not only inspires his band members but also his audience. Keep on Rockin’.

Rock That Swing Festival

It is hard to believe that just six weeks ago we have been celebrating together at Rock That Swing. Now most people are in shelter and can only meet or dance virtually. Every day we are so grateful that Rock That Swing was able to take place.

The fabulous Nuno Neves created this amazing and wonderful recap video. We hope it cheers you up and brings back great memories. We had tears in our eyes seeing the joy in all the faces. Let’s save as many lives as possible, so that everyone will be able to experience that joy when the dance floors open again.

It’s seventh Avenue, where the lights are blue!
It’s just such an amazing feeling to hear a song written by Dennis (and me) played by an 17 piece Big Band and that’s only one of two songs we played together.
Such a great arrangement by the NPBigBand!
Oh man… I still can’t find the right words. Thanks a lot to @rockthatswing for giving us such an opportunity! It was a great weekend and we hope to these folks again soon!
