It is not the history of the harmonica, that is the "best" of this amazing tale which began in the year 1821, but it the amazing fact of the pure pleasure that sixteen-year-old Christian Friedrich Buschmann inflicted upon us with his new musical invention.

General Information:
The band plays 16 hole Chromatic (key of C), as a group.
Some member's play the diatonic in different keys, during solo performances.

The band was established in 1933 and it is believed to be
the only Mouth Organ Band of its kind in the world.


But, for most of us, in 1857, the history of the harmonica changed dramatically as German clock maker Matthias Hohner turned to manufacturing harmonic. With the help of his family and a hired workman, he was able to produce 650 instruments that year. Soon after, he added local workers and developed mass production techniques.
