Squeezin’ N’ Wheezin’: Leader Michael Farrenkopf was born to German immigrants in Columbus, Ohio. As a youngster, he quickly became familiar with high-spirited German music. He began performing at Schmidt’s in 1978 and convinced his brother Martin to join him to form the duo. It was a match that worked and the duo has provided Schmidt’s with their “gemutlichkeit” party atmosphere ever since. Although the band has been known to accept invitations to tour Germany and Northern Italy, you can see them right here at Schmidt’s, every Thursday and Friday night – creating an Oktoberfest feeling all year long!
Schnickelfritz: This dynamic duo Has been considered the “Haus” band at Schmidt’s since 1979. They can also be found each year at the largest Oktoberfest in the Country just 2 hours Southwest of Columbus, in Cincinnati. To date, the highlight of the bands musical experience was being asked by Disney World to perform at Epcot Center in the German Pavilion.
Live music Wednesday and Thursday beginning at 7:00pm, Friday and Saturday beginning at 8:00pm.
