2019 German Christmas Market headliners; Squeezebox!  They played for us for the first time in 2017.  The requests have been coming in, so we invited them back for this year!  They sell out dance halls and play to packed festival tents across the nation, and even graced the silver screen in the movie The Mule with Clint Eastwood in 2018!
