"Juli" is a German rock/pop band consisting of singer Eva Briegel, guitarists Jonas Pfetzing and Simon Triebel, bassist Andreas "Dedi" Herde and drummer Marcel Römer. The band's name is German for "July". They come from Gießen, Hessen.
Together with Wir sind Helden and Silbermond they were one of the most successful German pop bands during the summer of 2004, and this success helped to re-establish German lyrics in the German music business once more.
In late December, 2004, ''Perfekte Welle'', meaning "Perfect Wave", was banned from radio and TV stations after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. The media were criticized for taking this action because the song was not related to catastrophies, but is a metaphorical description of a person taking the chance which s/he has waited for. The stations expressed particular discomfort with the lines in the bridge (Now it slowly comes to you, the water hits you in the face) and chorus (That is the perfect wave, that is the perfect day/Let yourself be carried by it...).
They won the Bundesvision Song Contest in 2005 with their song ''"Geile Zeit".'' They were representing their home province of Hesse.
