DIE CHICAGO STADT- MUSIKANTEN
A unique German language music program by Jutta & the Hi-Dukes
This special, affordable, and eclectic program ranges from Medieval songs to Oktoberfest Blasmusik-style tunes. The band’s energetic and fresh approach to traditional music can add sparkle and fun to your concert series, party, or event.
Please note that, upon request, the band can also present a fine array of classic American Big-Band style dance songs, 50s acoustic rock songs, as well as dance music from other European ethnic traditions.
The multi-instrumentalist core trio plays flute, mandolin, guitar, and percussion. Vocals in up to three-part harmonies add to the group’s color.
Mandolin and guitar can be used on one song followed by violin or flute, guitar, and darabouka on the next.
And that is just the trio. When a larger band is requested, acoustic bass, rhythm guitar, tenor saxophone, and extra percussion.
Dance instruction can also be provided. The core band members have taught traditional dances for nearly thirty years at private parties, folk festivals, schools, universities, and corporate events.
