Organ Grinder Lola sings Moritaten, old ballads of broken hearts, lost love, madness, mayhem, and bloody murder! Master Bob cranks their beautiful, hand-crafted crank organ, Scharmanka.

Lots of fun for young and old, boisterous and colorful, in full costume and with pictures that illustrate these traditional songs!

Organ Grinder Lola sings in English or in her native German: "Mariechen sass weinend im Garten", "Sabinchen war ein Frauenzimmer", the ultimate organ-grinder song, "Mack, the Knife", and many more. Often, people sing along to the familiar strains and music-hall tunes like "Meet Me In St. Louis", "By the Light of the Silvery Moon", and "Lillie Marlene".

They have a fabulous repertoire of Bavarian drinking songs, Rhineland drinking songs, Berliner drinking songs, instrumental polkas, waltzes, and other hard-partying music.
