The band is comprised of students of Klaus Staffa, the director of the largest drumming centre in Berlin. They have been supporting the runners at their course venue at Innsbrucker Platz since 2001.

Klaus Staffa: “(Runners dressed as) Asterix and Obelix stop by each year and take a photo with us. Last year they came again and gave us a giant photo from the previous year.”
