Still Collins in Cologne

Kunstgarten Saturday – Blümchenknicker

BluemchenknickerAn entertaining mix of Django Reinhardt, Gypsy, Flamenco, Reggae, Ska, Polka, Country, Rockabilly und Ballads with tongue in cheek German language songs. 

There should be something for everybody when Blümchenknicker, the large and lively band set around the colourfully named Bender ‘Corleone’ Flowers  take the small stage at Kunstrasen on Saturday 2 August (6.30pm to 8pm).

They made for a lively show not too long ago supporting Lauter Leben so give them a listen – and as always at Kunstgarten it’s FREE!
