Inspired by his father at the early age of only Six years-old, Kris was already making an appearance on stage before turning Ten. He has since gone on to spend more than twenty years thrilling audiences throughout the globe playing live.
The band have appeared at major festivals throughout the UK and Europe. These include Ramblin’ Man Fair (UK), Rawa Blues Festival (Poland) and Bliuzo Naktys (Lithuania). 2017 saw the band complete two very successful tours in both the UK and Europe with 2018 lining up much more of the same.
Kris was nominated for ‘Blues Guitarist of the Year 2017’ by Total Guitar magazine and voted into the Top 15 Blues Guitarists in the World by Music Radar.
‘The Divine and Dirty’ album was released in March 2018 and went in straight at number one in both the Amazon and iTunes Blues charts as well as Number 3 in the Official UK Blues/Jazz Charts, where it remained in the top 30 for 12 weeks. The album also reached the UK top 40 on Amazon for all music; the only blues-based band in that chart at the time.
Impressive guitar sounds and bad-ass melodies – do not miss out to experience Kris Barras Band live!
Friday 28 June, 7 PM, Main Stage
Kris Barras Band - Hail Mary
Powerful German-rock combined with the dusty roughness of the southern american music.
Five friends, who combine their two big passions: authentic, sweaty German-Rock and the love for the roaring sound of the streets while riding their Harley bikes and feeling free as an eagle – that’s the world of BRENNER.
Vibrant hooks, brutally honest lyrics and a genuine sound provide the band with an incomparable memorability, which knows how to whip up enthusiasm in the audience.
Straightforward, passionate and energetic: that is Brenner!

Laura Cox Band
Rough guitar sounds instead of trendy pop music.
It was her father, who inspired young Laura Cox to listen to country, folk and rock music. That is why at the age of 14, Laura began to play the guitar and started her YouTube channel with cover versions of well known classics such as Guns’n‘Roses „November Rain“ or „We Will Rock You“ by Queen. Nowadays, her channel has more than 350.000 subscribers and her videos get up to 12 million clicks – what an incredible success!
In 2013, Laura met her current partner Mathieu Albiac and founded the LAURA COX BAND with him. Together, the two of them follow the dream of bringing back an almost dead music genre to France: Classic- and southern rock.
This year, the band is going to be on tour with their first album „Hard Blues Shot“ in Germany, France and other countries, so that fans in all of Europe can listen to this spectacular mix of country, blues, southern rock and hard rock.
And so we’re happy to announce that LAURA COX BAND is playing for us at the Hamburg Harley Days!
Saturday, 29th June, 7:15 PM, Main Stage.
Laura Cox Band - Hard Blues Shot (Live)
Three guys are playing for their lifes – that’s the real sound of rock’n’roll!
OHRENFEINDT call Hamburgs red light district St.Pauli their home – and you can hear it. Their sound is rough, cracking and sweaty and therefore as authentic as St.Pauli itself. Scrollwork and kitsch do not resonate through the stereo systems when the three men hit their instruments!
OHRENFEINDT love what they do and you can hear their passion on their new album „Tanz nackt“ (Dance Naked) which got released on 31st August 2018. A tune that gets you dancing and a variety of lyric topics – this album is an absolute delight to listen to! And that is why we are looking forward to hearing their songs at Hamburg Harley Days 2019!
Saturday, 29th June, 9:30PM, Main Stage.
