The Atlanta German Band: Your Premier Choice for German Oktoberfest Music
Leader, Laurence "Laurentz," celebrating his rich German heritage, proudly presents "The Atlanta German Band." Known for his tuba prowess and the many times he's carried American Jazz worldwide (yes, including Germany), he now shares the joy of exuberant German sounds in the Southeastern United States. The band boasts a repertoire that includes traditional German Oktoberfest music and popular American-style Oom-pah music.
Laurentz's love for music traces back to his "Pennsylvania Dutch" lineage, and he's on a mission to promote this vibrant genre wherever he and his talented band perform across the globe. The band members firmly believe that the inclusion of great beer and high-cholesterol foods is essential to the American diet, at least during October! Their instrumentation and style are deeply rooted in the German-American tradition.
The band's front line features the trumpet, clarinet, and tenor sax, with the rhythm section skillfully rounded out by the tuba, accordion, and drums. Laurentz's childhood was enriched by the melodies of "Whoopie John" Wilfahrt and the tunes of the "Six Fat Dutchmen," which left a lasting impression. They also hold a deep affection for Frankie Yankovic, with his hits prominently featured in their repertoire, alongside Slovenian and Polish selections.
The Atlanta German Band offers various ensemble configurations, from a trio featuring trumpet, accordion, and tuba, to the full six-piece band with the addition of trombone, drums, and clarinet. With their delightful waltzes, Schottisches, Polkas, and more, they guarantee tons of fun and excitement for all! Yah!
