Previous Shows and Past Performances


Das Ist Lustig had their Debut as a duo at the 2007 Texas Folklife Festival in San Antonio, Texas, where they yodeled, rang bells, taught the Seven Step Polka, the Blacksmith dance and had groups of people playing in the Austrian cowbell choir.  Since that first show, they have entertained all over Texas, and in many other places including Louisiana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Germany, and The Netherlands.
