There are so many things we like that it’s hard to keep track of it all – especially in this day and age. So we decided to put together a list and keep it in one place. I’m sure we missed something but we’ll get it added when we remember what it is we missed. The sites listed below include performing groups, clubs, businesses and a few sites of individuals in the band. Please consult the key below to understand the symbols associated with each listing.


Feel free to drop us a line if you have a German organization, band, choir, etc. - especially in the Cleveland area - you would like to see added to our list.
