Back Home from Tour

In March, playing mostly NC, with a little bit of wonderful TN and SC


Spring is in the air, it's coming for sure!
First of all: a big warm THANK YOU-hug to everyone who helped making these past 6 weeks an unforgettable tour for us. Thank you to all you fans, who came out to see us again - we are so pleased to play for you repeatedly and see your smiling faces. Thank to all you new fans, who saw us the first time, signed up to our email list and follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Youtube. Thank you to all repeat and new venues, who graciously hosted our shows! And last but not least: Thank you so so much to all of you who shared your homes with us: family, friends and CouchSurfing-hosts [=new friends :-)] We LOVE Y'All!

What we brought with us from tour are great experiences and many stories. One of them was that Chris and Cristof were renamed to Fin and Cupcake aka Rodeoman by two wonderful angels aged 5 and 7 in Vermont. Another one is: spring is definitely coming; we saw it in Athens GA's botanical garden (see picture above).

Happy New Year, Happy House Concert

How to Book Live Music right in Your Own Living Room


Happy New Year Y'All! We wish you happiness, health and many moments of blissful joy in this new year 2014.

A few weeks ago, still in the "old" year, we were booked for a wonderful show. One of the new friends we had made while touring had the idea to host a Holiday party with home-made foods and desserts and - live music! Isn't that a great idea? Well, we were of course very honored and very excited when she asked us, The Wilhelm Brothers, to set up and play. She was also keenly aware that as full-time musicians, there needs to be some kind of financial remuneration for the entertainment service performed by us.

You may think - wow, what a luxury it may be to book a live band. Maybe for a wedding, okay, but a simple holiday get-together? Well, where there's a will there's a way. So we found an agreement that would work for all of us (and so can you):
  • first of all, we found a date that would fit our touring schedule (yes, we tour all over the East Coast, Midwest and South/South-East, and are keen on expanding our routes!) 
  • she and her family fed and hosted us for the night (guest beds were nice, but also a clean floor for our air mattresses does it) 
  • she made sure, every guest would make a generous donation to the band (taking into consideration the large number of confirmed guests, the $5 minimum per person she recommended to her guests seemed very appropriate) 
  • and additionally, as a bonus so to speak, she set up another show for us the next morning (volunteering our performance for a Blinded Veterans group)
How wonderful, right? And how affordable, right? Thank you again, Dana! It was a true pleasure to play for you and all your friends - and your group of veterans.

And You Can Do It, Too


All musicians we know love these kind of gigs, and so do the concert patrons. We believe, all parties should have live music. So, please Y'all, get in touch with your favorite local or touring band, and arrange for a performance that will not only make your party truly unforgettable, but also at the same time will take care of the livelihood of your professional musician friends. What a fun way to foster community!

Your choice of music is usually just an email or a phone call away - check the contact page of your desired band's website or facebook page. Ours are thewilhelmbrothers@gmail.com or 828-398-4701.

Call or email right away :-)

Thank you so much for your love in 2013, and for your continuous support throughout 2014!

Love and Hugs

Sunshine State Sunshine

Under the Boardwalk?! :-))

The Wilhelm Brothers' First Tour to Florida this month, with stops in NC and SC


After meeting and sharing the stage with Florida's amazing singer/songwriter Austin Miller - check out his music - last year as well as this year in NC and TN, it's now finally time for us to tour to his home state. We feel a little bit like following the migratory routes of the birds - going South when the cold comes.

Speaking of behaving like a bird: upon popular request, we've been spending some time in the studio recently to record our song "Like A Bird" - stay tuned for more infos soon to follow about its release! Here's a live performance on video of the song (scroll to about 9:40min):
