The Great British Bake Off’s Jürgen Krauss played trombone for Japanese Breakfast in London

The Bake Off star joined the band for their performance at O2 Kentish Town Forum last night (25 October).

Japanese Breakfast – aka the project of Michelle Zauner – shared photos of the band with The Great British Bake Off TV show contestant Jürgen Krauss, who joined them on stage to play trombone yesterday.

Posting to Instagram, Zauner wrote: “Last year in our covid bubble we watched Great British Bake Off on the bus and fell in love with Jürgen and rooted for him every Friday. He brought us so much joy when touring was such an anxiety ridden unknown.” She also explained the t-shirts the band are sporting in the photos, adding, “we made bootleg Jürgen shirts to celebrate the end of tour.”

Last year, Japanese Breakfast released her memoir Crying in H Mart, which was based of Zauner’s 2018 New Yorker essay of the same name and is also set to be made into a film. She also released her third album, Jubilee, last June.
