Instruments and Equipment:

Freddie Plays:  A Strasser “3 Row” Alpenblumen Professional model Buttonbox, with one step less than the maximum Tremolo, in the keys of CG&F. 

Ron Plays:  An acoustic Takamine G-Series six string guitar with a piezo-electric pick-up and usually strung with Martin medium gauge (0.012”) strings...or:  A vintage double neck acoustic 15 string Kontra-Bassgitarre made about 1930 in Bavaria. 

Our Audio Equipment:  A 200W Fender Passport amp with built-in six channel mixer, Shure UT14 UHF cordless input systems for both voice and instruments, and a Guest Microphone with 50ft. of cable. 

Our Performance:  We are not tied to a stage!  Radio Transmitters for both voices and instruments allow us total freedom to roam as far as 100ft away from the stage and our amplifying equipment to mingle with guests.  Our amplification is sufficient to cover a medium sized hall or small tent with up to 300 guests.  No two performances are ever alike, and none of our material is electronically generated or prerecorded.  We play, sing and yodel classic to modern German Volks and Volkstümliche music, and always adjust our material to the event and audience, so non-German speakers will be entertained also.  Our cordless transmitters let us bring the show right to just about anyone at an event.  We typically circulate and ask for musical suggestions, or we might serenade a guest at their table with a yodeler, “Ein Prosit”, or a birthday wish.  We might even bring the Blue Guest Microphone to a guest, so that they can join us and sing along...we’ll even supply the songtext, because we encourage audience participation! 

Guest musical performers available (as recorded on our CD , by special arrangement):

                Erika Meier on vocals (performing Birnbaum and various other songs and yodelers),

                Maria Meier on vocals (performing Edelweiss and National Anthems),

                Nick Kwas on violin (acoustic or electric), (performing classical, traditional and/or fiddle).

Power Requirement:  A single 110VAC outlet is sufficient to supply all of our electrical needs. 

Weather Protection:  We like to play outside when temperatures are moderate, but our equipment, and our instruments need to be protected from possible bad weather. 


Schachtelgebirger Musikanten Performance Schedule:   Please contact venue or us to verify dates and times. 

Please contact us if you would like us to add some unique, live entertainment to your event!  Please note:  The fall schedule gets quite busy, so if you would like us to be a part of your event, please book early to avoid disappointment!
