Is he Irish? Is he Czech? German Joe & BAVARIAN CREAM entertain an equally unruly crowd of bier & schnitzel lovers with their unique blend of German and American sing-and-stomp-alongs. The band can be seen regularly at BierhausNYC.com, an authentic German bierhall in the heart of Midtown Manhattan celebrating Oktoberfest 365 days of the year. But Joe can really rock a jailhouse. Whether it's a rock, pop, country or bluegrass song, one thing is for sure: When it's time for a polka, you better have your shot-ski ordered and your party-pants on...no polka band is funner. Prost!
