The Kaiser Wilhelm Ratskeller Brummers are sponsored by the Harmonie Singers of the German-American Society.
The Brummers were formed in January 1971 and specialize in German folk music. The band is comprised of school teachers, engineers, and businessmen of the community.
The Brummers have played at nursing homes, Bradley Homecomings, the Governor of the State of Illinois, and are the opening ceremonial band at Peoria Oktoberfest. They have entertained for many business concerns in the Peoria area and for over 31 years, have been the featured band at the famous German fests held at Hickory Grove picnic grounds.
