Das Ist Lustig headlines the Family Stage again this year and is a local German band from Houston. Das Ist Lustig means “that’s fun”, and the band performs for audiences of all ages, and is a fan favorite at the Island Oktoberfest.
Das Ist Lustig offers variety that no other band does with their audiences. Make sure to ask them for the Bench Dance, or to go Cuckoo with you. They even have their own twist on the traditional Schnitzelbank. And with folk dances, the more the merrier, so join in! It’s okay if you don’t know how to dance – if you can walk, they’ll show you how to do the dance.
Valina Polka of Das Ist Lustig will also serve as MC for the Family stage. Valina is fascinated by the multitude of talent featured at events like this. She is absolutely thrilled to be the emcee again for the 34th annual Galveston Oktoberfest Family Stage.
