Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Beats & Ballads’ at the Bootlegger bar with THE BEEZ / THE SAUERKRAUTS for Oktoberfest
Upstairs, 2 sets from 9pm
A yodellin´, thigh slappin', lederhosen wettin´ fest of German music from The Beez' Deta (accordion, vocals) and Rob (guitar, vocals) featuring the Beatific Beats of Julia Day on drums.
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 wait, that´s not all!
Now those Testy Teutons have their sights set on the rich treasury of Oz Rock. As polka. In German. Wince as Aussie classics are put through the Sauerkraut mincer! Cover your ears as the likes of Barnsey and Farnsy are blitzed into polka oblivion! In The Sauerkrauts own words- "If you´re not a polka fan it's looking really bad, ´cause this might be the longest evening you have ever had". The Last Plane Out of Sydney´s almost gone but, regrettably, The Sauerkrauts are not on board.
Deta and Rob always felt that the German Oeuvre was a little under represented in today´s musical landscape, so here they are to make amends with an evening of dance floor-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 and Julia Day´s Germanic Grooves it´s an irresistible rockin' polka machine.
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 every folk festival you care to think of.
