Possibly the best use of beer bottles ever...

A friend sent this video to me awhile back, and I thought you all might enjoy seeing it, if you haven't already. It features the St. Luke's Bottle Band, of St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Park Ridge, Illinois, offering their rendition of "Peacherine Rag." Enjoy!

Thanks to Hilary at The Smitten Image for including this post as a Post of the Week.



  1. It gave me a little chuckle and a big smile. Thanks for posting this!

  2. Oh that's just fabulous. My son and I watched and listened.. and enjoyed.

  3. Fantabulous! I enjoyed their hats and attire as much as their musical talent. Such fun...don't think I will look at a beer bottle the same after this. :)

  4. I had to laugh that they were fellow Lutherans. You know many Lutherans are German and you know Germans love their beer (with some Baptists non-beer-drinkers like me mixed in), so leave it to a bunch of Lutherans to come up with a way to use those empty beer bottles! The saying goes, "Lutherans call beer German kool-aid

    I really did enjoy this (and will show it to the beer drinker in the house when he gets up). I have to think beer bottles have never had a prouder moment! :) Thanks for sharing it.

  5. TNE- I'm always glad when I can give you a chuckle. Glad you enjoyed it, Kristina.

    Hilary - Did it give Alex any musical ideas? :) I'm glad you and he both enjoyed it.

    Lori - I agree...the costumes really add to the performance.

    Sandra - Ha! I love the "German Kool-Aid" comment. And I'm so glad this group came up with such a creative way to use those empty bottles. Hope your Hubby enjoyed it, too.

  6. Excellent!! I am going to re-tweet your post and also put the video on my FB page! Love it!! Congrats on POTW...well deserved!

  7. Very charming, I watched another 8 videos.I may have to look for a recording now.

  8. Jillsy - Thanks! Glad you liked it.

    OOTP - I spent some time yesterday afternoon, looking at some of their other video clips, too, trying to pick the best one for the post. I've never seen anything quite like this before.

    Betty - Thanks so much.

  9. Oh how clever, Linda.... I laughed and laughed... TOO cute --and so creative... Thanks for sharing.

  10. Thanks, Betsy. Glad you enjoyed it. I don't know whether you read Grayquill or not, but his post today, titled "Choose Wisely," is just a hoot. Check it out. I've got a link to his blog in my sidebar.

  11. That's pretty good. People's creativity seem to have no limits. Good post. I wonder if it was a requirement to drink their bottles empty before the performance.
    Thanks for the grins. GQ

  12. What a pleasure to see the fun this generates.

  13. Grayquill - Drinking the contents of the bottles may have contributed to the costumes worn for the performance. :) Glad you enjoyed it.

    TechnoBabe - Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you found it fun.
