Biergarten Solo! The Wooden Laughter...

   One of the most well themed and atmospheric restaurants in Walt Disney World is Epcot's Biergarten.  Though we absolutely love the food here, the highlight of the experience is the German oompah band!  This band (with a few member changes...) has been performing at Biergarten since the opening of Epcot Center in 1982! Their show involves many beautiful, whimsical, and rousing traditional German tunes.  In addition to the more traditional songs, their set also includes impressive demonstrations of solo instruments, among them the The Holzanes G'L├Ąchter or "wooden laughter." 
   Here is a phenomenal display of the instruments fun capability that we recorded on a recent visit to Biergarten.
