A Proud Musical Tradition
Kameraden (old friends) of Red Lodge Band all about good music and good times. Performing publicly and for special events, we play both traditional and lesser known music for brass band.
Our library consists of Oktoberfest style German festival music, pieces from the original "Buffalo Bill Wild West Show" band library, and a wide range of other music from waltzes to spirited and well known marches..
We also utilize German military band music and draw from collections of Italian band music and Swiss alpine band music. We pride ourselves as the American home to an extensive collection of Finnish and Finnish-American music. We have also added several pieces of authentic, turn-of-the-century, American band music from the Butte, Montana, "Miner's Band" library.
Our talented musicians live throughout the region and are led by master trumpeters Kerry and Ken Boggio (right). Most of our two dozen members are lifelong musicians. Several are award winning music educators. One versatile seasonal player is a Grammy nominee.
The Red Lodge Alte Kameraden Band performs in downtown Red Lodge every Saturday in good weather, and by special request in a variety of venues throughout the year. We are a well-appreciated staple at local and regional Oktoberfest, music and cultural festivals.
Above all, we have fun.
Alte Kameraden of Red Lodge is the current version of a succession of bands that began performing in the region in 1896. See our history page for more information.
Alte Kameraden is available for hire. Please see our “book us” page.
We look forward to playing at your event.
