"Ole, ole and schallala!" it threatens from the backyard in the lange strabe in bamberg, where you can find the bar kawenzmann. There's french beer and even the ballermann singer, who comes from bubenreuth, feels right at home. Peter wackel roars into the mike on the improvised stage: "but screw it, malle only comes around once a year!" the fans go along and the hands go high. Wackel grins at his fellow singer youssef addala. Together they improvise their song, sometimes substituting "malle" in the refrain through "kerwa and vice versa, which often happens this evening. And the crowd roars the songs "scheib drauf!" and "kerwa ole" with, which are actually one – and something like the actual star of this wednesday evening.
The malle version:
Over 150.000 copies sold and 15 million streamed on the internet – peter wackel has the mallorca version of the bamberger hit "kerwa ole" ennobled with the golden record. "This was the cult song of the last ten years!", says wackel before he prints the framed gold into the hands of his bamberger musician colleagues between champagne, singing and beer in the kawenzmann. The party belongs to the song.
The kerwa version:
The song comes from the pen of the "endlich kerwa band, more precisely by sanger bruno barrique (youssef addala), guitarist schmiegla (christian schmieg) and bassist floyd sektmann (florian link). "Kerwa ole" has the "finally kerwa band" first intoned in 2008 at the katzenberg at the sandkerwa. What hit like a bomb. "We have already noticed: there jumps the spark uber", says florian link. When one of the dozens of versions of her song is played in the subway in munich at wiesn time, the 38-year-old bamberger is still as happy as punch. "If you tell people that you wrote this, no one will believe you", says youssef addala. But. They have.
From 2012, the song should be based: party singer peter wackel became aware of the song. A first meeting at schlenkerla, a few altered lines and a few months later the malle hit was ready, which is now not only known by the germans at the ballermann.
"Shit on it!" went through the ceiling and brought the franken wackel back to his beginnings on the regnitzstrand. In the 90s, the now 40-year-old had his first performances in bamberg. On wednesday, the party was on again – with fans dressed in red "finally kerwa"-T-shirts came. Among them christopher ohlein: "i think it's great that peter wackel celebrates the song with us. He pays respect to the fans of the bamberger band." and that's what wackel likes to do: "party must be!", he says and orders another beer.
