The Sauerkrauts (Berlin) at Humph Hall
January 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$15 – $25
A yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin’ fest of German music from Deta (accordion,vocals) and Rob (guitar, vocals) and featuring the Beatific Bavarian Beats of drummer………….You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Kraftwerk; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that´s an order!
Deta and Rob always felt that the German Oeuvre was a little under represented in The Beez, so here they are to make amends with an evening of Dancefloor -Compatible Deutsche Derring-do, featuring Deta´s fabulous „Brunhilde Bass“ accordion . One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner „Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistable rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a loop machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilties which are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.
Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; their band The Beez performs regularly throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and at just about every folk festival you care to think of. The Sauerkrauts will be touring Australia from January to May 2017.
