Recorded during CC n°1 festival in ausland, Berlin on 14th dec. 2012
In a room full of plants The Wedding Band plays music that thrives with love to community and creativity from outside the closet. The Wedding Band plays on known and unknown instruments. Keeping close to the tradition of light opera the chords embrace each other like members of a family feud. Rhythm meets rhythm and goy meets birl. And in the end maybe, maybe a bouquet will be gathered out of the plants and thrown into the audience. The person lucky enough to catch it will have to get married or divorced in the showing of the yet unwritten fourth act of the operetta.

CC N°1 celebrated the 10th anniversary of the collective cultural crusade of ausland. ausland is a crystal castle charity corporation for contemporary music and arts in Berlin. ausland thrives in a corruptive climate of collateral coincidences, collective complications, and chaotic creativity: Catch as catch can!
During the past 10 years, ausland mutated and mushroomed in several climatic changes of Berlin’s cultural jungle: from a squatter-like grass roots illegal bar to a high-profile though still low-budget space for the experimental arts that acclimatizes to the interests of the complimentarily curating and cleaning crew.
