The Fishpickers?

Sometimes we add a few different folks to the roster and we become Buffalo Bill and His Bavarian Beerhunters or The Fishpickers

The Bavarian Beerhunters is a 5 piece international band, whose members hail from Alaska, Texas, and Bavaria Germany. The band features a foot stomping, toe tapping, dance ‘til you drop blend of folk, honky-tonk and traditional music (Listen Now...).

The band plays traditional acoustic instruments: fiddle, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, drums and guitar. The group is made up of fishermen and artists who work the fishing nets and stormy seas on the Alaska coast, working hard in the summers, playing hard in the winters. These musical artisans travel and play their very own unique style of music: Old Time Texas Fiddling and Old Time Banjo Rapping, and a Bavarian Double Bass Check our bios for more info...

In 2009, The Bavarian Beerhunters were placed in the top 10 bands out of 350 bands from around the world at the 2009 International Buskers Festival in Ferrara, Italy. In the last 5 years they have played mostly in Southeast Alaska in the summers and in Bavaria, Germany, in the winters. Check our schedule for more info about our current movements...
