Guggemusik AucklandBand from Auckland
We are a costumed carnival band that plays at various festivals throughout the year. The origins of the band are Swiss where the Guggemusik style is popular.
We are made up of brass and percussion instruments, playing a mixture of newer and traditional tunes. The band currently has approximately 20 members but can be as large as 30. Our members are aged 20-70 years and are of mixed musical ability.
We have a relaxed attitude, where it is about the fun of playing music together rather than being note perfect.
When playing at festivals the focus is on lively, crowd pleasing tunes mixed with movement and costumes.
