Bolzen Beer Band / Press

“Here's a sampling of audience chatter that the band’s performance has thus far elicited: “This is awesome.” “You can’t beat this.” “I want to learn how to play tuba so I can do that.” “I think the first time I saw them was in an alley.””

“I had certainly heard about Lincoln’s local music scene before, but I’d never been so close to it. Since then, I have continued going to shows with mixed results. I’d heard some great and I’d heard some terrible, but nothing had the effect on me of Orion and the Bolzen Beer crew. Until last night... ...I was fairly sure there was nothing that could top what I’d just seen. And I was right.”

““I’ve gotten in more trouble with this band and done more crazy stuff with this band — I mean we did a family reunion gig out in Garland, and we ended up having a naked hot tub party with a bunch of people,” Socha said. “We had an 80-year-old lady chugging a boot in Madison, we had 200 people fist bumping yelling ‘Go, go, go!’ Wisconsin fans are gnarly. I’ve watched Brian kick pitchers of beer all over the front row of the crowd. I watched Brian hit a guy with a tuba because he tried pouring beer down the bell.””

"they grab their instruments and play sing-along polka songs that have just about everyone in the bar dancing, hopping, shouting, clapping, stomping and fist-pumping until almost 2 a.m."
