    I knew Betty and John and sang German songs [ in German ] with them occasionaly. They were great. John played the concertina perfectly and so smooth.People said music just flowed from Betty and that's the way it was.John and Betty and the DEUTSCHMEISTERS were the best band I have ever known.They were professionals,so confident,so good.
