    Five tactful rascals who, despite their high-speed expeditions through the worlds of percussion instruments, neither shock nor scare their audiences. On the contrary: they are as straight as the drumsticks they use. Their mission: beat entertainment at the highest level. Their tools: seven drums, ten rocket-speed sticks and humour at the ready. Not to mention the undivided attention and ecstatic enthusiasm of any audience.

    Daring groove artistry and Chaplinesque slapstick choreography make every beat dropped by this band a bomb-proof coup. It is the work of complete pros: virtuous drummers and thrilling entertainers all in one. Five humorous born musicians who, after every surprise delivered, already have the next trick up their sleeve. One look in their file will show that these Mafiosi from the Mannheim harbour district of Jungbusch abandoned petty crime long ago. They have been playing their charm and their drumsticks at countless events for five years.

    They won the 2015 Baden-Württemberg Kleinkunstpreis and entertained millions of TV viewers on the final of the RTL show Die Puppenstars and collaborated with the artist Joris on the Echo Show 2016. Whoever the audience, be they from the world of politics (Federal Ministry for Economy), industry (BASF, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Otto), culture (lit.Cologne, New Pop Festival) or the media (SWR, Arte, RTL), they all say at the end: mission accomplished!

    Teeing off on volcanoes

    Fri 11 Oct, Gijon – Real Club de Castiello
    A magnificent, beautifully maintained 18-hole parkland course awaits your visit today. The wide, highly playable fairways lead with clear visibility to the final greens, which are guarded by just a few bunkers. The attractive course is not really for long hitters, however, since it offers a total length of 5,385 m (5,890 yards) for men and 4,599 m (5,030 yards) for women. Here you will need to concentrate more on directing your shots.

    Wed 16 Oct, Terceira – Clube de Golfe da Ilha Terceira
    This 18-hole course is set in the highlands of the Azores in an agricultural region. The rather narrow fairways almost always end in small, compact greens. This means that players will need to concentrate mainly on their management of space. Straight shots get you there faster.

    Thu 17 Oct, Sao Miguel – Campo de Golfe das Furnas
    This course is also set high up in the island’s hills. Unlike the Clube de Golfe da Ilha Terceira, however, there are some expansive playing areas here, which will really help your game. Time and time again, spectacular views over the surrounding countryside will be potential for distraction. So you will need to keep your eye on the ball and concentrate.

    Sat 19 Oct, Funchal (Madeira) – Palheiro Golf Club
    With a backdrop of the mountains of Madeira on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, this is one of the finest championship courses. The par 72 course challenges players thanks to its natural features alone, as there are some fairly sizeable height differences to contend with. The high points also offer a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside.

    Mon 21 Oct, Cadiz – Montenmedio Golf & Country Club
    Pines, palm trees and putting lines: one of the most naturally scenic golf courses in Spain awaits your visit. Set in the highlands of Cadiz, the wide fairways are lined with beautiful mature trees, which demand a lot of precision from players during their round. The tricky greens with their treacherous bunkers add to the challenge. You will be rewarded for your efforts by stunning views of the typical white villages of the area, such as Vejer de la Frontera, Benalup and Medina. Severiano Ballesteros once said of this course, “Montenmedio is one of those golf courses that no golfer should miss!”
