We are Die Lustigen Musikanten (pronounced Dee Loose'-Tee-Gun Moose-Ee-Kahn'-Ten), which translates into The Happy Musicians!

We are a traditional German band based in Columbia, SC, and we are made up of 2 flugelhorns, 2 trumpets, 4 clarinets, a trombone, a baritone, a tenor horn, 2 tubas, and a drummer. For smaller venues, we use a smaller version consisting of one fewer flugelhorn, trumpet, clarinet, and tuba. See our member listing.

We play authentic German marches, polkas, and waltzes - our sheet music comes straight from Germany, obtained by one of our former members while he was living in Germany. We play at parties, receptions, and festivals, and we also enjoy playing at retirement communities.

Take a look at our schedule. If you would like us to play at an event, please see our booking page.
