The Oompah Machine was formed in the wake of a disastrous flood that saw both an accordion and a tuba washed up onto the lawn. We put off learning how to play as long as we could. But the tuba only has three buttons, so how hard can it be, really? Same with that other horn the lady plays - is there a name for that thing? It's not a trombone, right? Turns out you can fake playing accordion pretty convincingly by watching videos online. You just, like, squeeze it in and move your hand back and forth on the keyboard looking part, and then sorta un-squeeze it back out.So now we tour extensively, stumbling our way through beer halls and beer tents and biergartens all around this great land. Audiences are reliably drunk, so no one seems to notice we're no good, and we never have to ask for a recommendation letter. What's not to love? If it all comes crashing down around us some day, well, it's been a great ride. Meantime, can I use 2 drink tickets for a pitcher? Prost!
