    Find the right crowd--and word of mouth--you could be the new Irish Rovers...

    Ha ha. I doubt we'll ever be serious contenders in the Irish space but i suppose you never know. We probably play a good 8 Oktoberfest gigs per year now- that was a lot more successful than I would have thought.

    When I hear German music--I think of Bach--or Scorpions...

    Certainly a lot more German music than this!

    Not familiar with them, but suffice to say that there are many genres of German music

    Accept is/was (?) a metal band-with real short lead singer

    So what other nationalities/ethnic groups would there be occasion for you to put together a program for?
    I know we mentioned Latin music.

    how about French?
    Get a Bouzuki & do Greek music?

    French would be neat but I can't imagine where we'd play it. Greek might also be tough to sell.

    I have an Italian concept list but this would also be limited to a very specific type of audience.

    Frankly I have always wanted to do a classical music theme where all arrangements are set to jazz.
