“ I don't know if you remember Emma Rose and myself from Oktoberfest in Helen, GA but you DEFINITELY made a huge, lasting impression on Emma Rose! So much so that she has begged to go back to Helen, GA every week since we left.😄 I wanted to thank you for making her feel included "in the band" and being so sweet.”

“Absolutely love their style! Ausgezeichnet!”

Thank y'all so much for joining us for the online shows on Saturday nights! Thank you for sending in photos and memories, thank you for sharing the videos to your pages, thank you for watching, and thank you for the tips!
We would not be able to continue down the path of running this business that we've poured decades of hard work, investment in instruments and equipment in to get us where we are without your love, friendship and support. Since hosting tours, coordinating events, and dance teaching are all still on hold, the only lifeline our business has is you, and the support you give us for the music we're playing. You are all blessings to us. Thank you!
And a huge PROST to JS Paulaner Paulaner USA, The Sauer Kraut Grill, and Saint Arnold Brewing Company for the neat decorations, dinners and drinks on show days. It's very true that we're all in this together. We're eager to continue doing all we can to help your businesses weather this storm. There's a big party waiting when the world heals - and we can't wait!
