Musical Onions?

To open the Wassenaar kermis (fair), these guys entertained the crowd waiting for the lantern parade to begin, then led the families in the march to the fair ground. They had a great sound and were very entertaining.

Curiously, the name of their group is "De Zwiebels." Zwiebel is the german word for onion ... although my dutch is limited I'm not aware of it being used in the dutch language. Maybe it's a joke, or my translation skills might be off. But they're definitely dutch ... check out the shoes!!!
