The band „Schelmish“ was founded in 1999, the english meaning for it would be roguish or mischievous.
In the middle of 1999 "Rimsbold", "Des Demonia" and "Dextro" decided to make an event for the 60th birthday of Des Demonias mother. They booked a part of a castle in germany and they had to learn instruments, firespewing, juggling and herald recitation in between half a year for this event. They got a few more friends and family members:
"Baccata", "Balitur", "Bajonne", "Buchanan", "Morbius" and "Igerne".
In December the birthday was celebrated and it was a big success and lots of fun, so they decided to go on with the music.
“Schelmish” got a platform at “Castle Satzvey” in their nearer sorroundings and so they played a few medieval fayres on that castle. Soon they got a bigger growing audience and they started playing everywhere in germany. More work had to be put in the band and so a few members left, because they had no time for it any longer. "Buchanan" was the first who left the band followed by "Igerne". Another girl joined “Schelmish”: "Tillya von Uhlenspegel”, but it was a short joinment. On the end of 2001 "Balitur", "Bajonne" and "Tillya" left the band, but in the same year "Schelmish" met a dubious freak, called "Fragor". He was a drum player and he changed the band completely. In fact he had a huge old medieval drum kit, the band could start doing the wild war music. So in the beginning of next year, "Baccata" and "Morbius" left the band and a new other davulplayer called "Sakepharus" joined the band and he seemed to be an animal. And that’s what he is J. The next female piper joined in 2002, "Amsel von Nydeggen".
The last one who became mischivous was a fan of Schelmish called "Luzi". He followed them to all their gigs and the band got him for bringing them beers. He was looking so funny when you looked at him in profile, because of his huge feet and the small size, he was looking like an L. The band liked him and they offered him a job as a roadie, afterwards as the merchandiser. After a while he was asked by the band to get himself a shawm, because they would like to introduce him on stage as the playing merchandiser. So on one gig "Dextro" got him on stage, but instead of playing one tune, he had to play nearly the whole gig. Big amusement J. After this he was asked by the band to get himself medieval pipes and he joined the band.
So the band was complete now for going everywhere:
"Rimsbold", "Des Demonia", "Dextro", "Amsel", "Luzi", "Fragor", "Sakepharus"
On the end of 2004 than Amsel had to drop out, because of personal problems and so the band had to go on with six people. A new female piper “The red Fox” joined the band for a few gigs in 2005 as a guest musician.
“Schelmish” played on festivals, concerts in clubs and halls, medieval fayres, in germany, netherlands, belgium, denmark, switzerland and in 2004 the first time in UK. The audience was so great in UK, they decided to come back to UK in 2005, what they did. They played so far in Stonehenge for the druids in june, in Tewkesbury and Bury St Edmunds on medieval fayres and they are planning to go to UK in the whole of july 2006 and they are planning a clubtour 2006 through UK.
