To all of our friends,
After nearly nine years and many many beautiful nights of music and Freundschaft, we have decided to bring Pieptone! to a close at year’s end. It’s been a crazy run, from playing Rex Gildo songs at north side open mics in 2009 to playing three nights of Schlager sets at the Lincoln Square German-American Fest in 2017. At its core Pieptone! has always been about getting friends out for a night of fun and music, and we’re proud to say that many of our Schlagernachts have been revels worthy of a Jan Steen painting. Which is exactly what we were shooting for from the moment we saw that little stage in the Mirabell dining room.
There are so many people to thank and we will try to touch base with you all over the next few weeks. As a band, we part in Liebe and Kameradschaft. You’ll continue to see and hear us both with other musicians and in collaboration in the future.
So Danke, Grazie, Merci and Thank You, liebe Freunde. Happy New Year and all the best in 2018 — Pieptone! liebt euch!
