Basel Fasnacht.  A collection of Piccolo groups (with drummers) and Guggenmusikbands. 


Basel Fasnacht 2001

'Bullwinkle' or some other famous moose and his band of drummers.

 

 

 

Tough Duck Piccolo band - only a bunch of kids really.

 

 

 

 

One of the many Guggenmusik bands.

I really liked the trumpet decoration with the neon glow light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Guggenmusik band nose what they are playing, but I couldn't figure out the tune.

Guggenmusik is played with instruments that must be out of tune (mostly done by denting them).

The music is raucous, loud and fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Eyes have it. Well this band leader is a bit 'one-eyed' about which is the best Guggenmusik band.

Actually they played pretty well.

Not sure what the dress code was though...

 

 

 

 

Another one-eyed band leader.

The hole in the throat is where he really looked out.

The masks can cost hundred of Swiss Francs each.

 

 

 

This merry group seemed to like bananas, at least that was the theme on their lantern. The shiny things on top of their masks were alarm bells from the old fashioned alarm clocks.

 

 

 

 

 

The happy band leader from the alarming Guggenmusik band.

Hmm, some cross dressing goes on at these festivals...

 

 

 

End of Fasnacht band photos.
