Der letzte Auftritt als „Polarbears“ in Chicago

Heute Mittag durften die Noggeler ihr Bärenmänteli zum letzten Mal anziehen … zumindest zum letzten Mal in Chicago. Wir sind im John Hancock Center aufgetreten, dem einfach markantesten Gebäude Chicago’s gleich neben dem Water Tower. Einmalig.

  1. Minneapolis/St. Paul has a long-standing Winter Carnival every year. I sent an email the coordinators and received a response, as follows. Hopefully they’ll contact you about coming to Minnesota!

    We just returned from Chicago where we saw the parade on the Magnificent Mile that was part of the Christmas lighting ceremony. We saw a fun group that was part of the parade called Noggeler Guuggenmusig Luzern. They are a group of men from Switzerland who play in a marching band with nordic-like costumes (maybe they’re yeti’s??). Chicago has had them several times but this was the first time we’ve seen them. They were really good . . . the best part of the parade. They also played in the courtyard area of the Magnificent Mile the following day and drew a huge crowd.

    Does the winter carnival ever pay to bring musicians in? If so, check these guys out!

  2. Oh no! If I translated this right, does this mean that you won’t be returning to Chicago for future parades/events? Do you have plans to come back to the U.S. for any other events, maybe Minneapolis, Minnesota?

    • Hi Barb! No, that just does mean, that the concert at Hancock Center was the last concert for THIS journey. We don’t know when we’re coming back to Chicago, but we’re pretty sure that this wasn’t our last trip to the States … if you wish us to play for you in Minneapolis/Minnesota just tell us when and book some flight’s and hotel rooms for us, we’re packing … :-)
