German-American Musicians, Inc.

Buffalo’s BIG German Band!

The German American Musicians may be known as Buffalo’s BIG German Band, but we are so much more than just a band!

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural organization dedicated to the cultivation and performance of the traditional music and culture of German-speaking lands.

Sending some Gemütlichkeit during social distancing!

Our standard four-hour show features four energetic sets of traditional German waltzes, polkas, marches, folk music, Rheinlanders, modern pop, and more. Our dance squad gets any crowd onto the dance floor and leads them through a variety of fun, simple dances.

We color our performances with historical backstories, geography and light comedy. We even cart in our Schlagzeug (complete with anvil) and other fun props!
