The OSSIS

2024 we celebrate 20 years of DIE OSSIS!

DIE OSSIS are five musicians who have played and still play in various bands themselves and who actively experienced the era of GDR rock music in the late 70s and especially in the 80s. Admittedly, the band name DIE OSSIS and our stage outfit with FDJ shirts, pioneer blouses, police and army uniforms seemed a bit provocative at the time, but that was exactly our aim. We wanted to cause a stir and we did it! Later we were joined by the fantastic singer Carie van Heden, with whom we were able to expand the program enormously!

Since September 2004, we have played around 750 concerts. The highlights were undoubtedly three concerts in front of several 100,000 people at the Brandenburg Gate on the "Day of German Unity"! A gigantic backdrop. But the concerts on the Hutberg stage in Kamenz at the R-SA summer festivals with around 10,000 spectators each time are also unforgettable. We have also enjoyed playing as support acts for well-known bands such as Karat, City, Münchner Freiheit and Purple Schulz and, of course, on countless large city and community festival stages, in theaters, cultural venues and clubs throughout Germany.

Since 2008 we call our program Ostrock Deluxe !

Since then, we have also been actively collaborating with well-known singers from the old Ostrock scene. The list ranges from Michael Barakowski (rest in peace) to IC Falkenberg, Dirk Zöllner & Andrè Gensicke, Tino Eisbrenner, Günther Fischer, Werther Lohse, Dieter "Quaster" Hertrampf, Andre Herzberg, Veronika Fischer, Claudius Dreilich, Muck, Mike Kilian and Wolfgang Ziegler.

Another highlight has been the Ostrock Deluxe Klassik program with the Berlin String Ensemble for about 10 years. The guest experiences a small but fine version of <rock meets classical music>, in any case a great homage to many great hits of the East from Veronika Fischer to Dirk Michaelis in a special guise. The string arrangements were all penned by our long-time band member and friend Carsten "beathoven" Mohren, the former Rockhaus keyboardist and music producer, who sadly passed away far too early.


Many say: " ... nowhere else can the audience experience the well-known cult hits from 30 years of GDR music history in such a concentrated form as with the OSSIS". In our concerts we play and celebrate exclusively the hits of Stern Meißen, Karat, Puhdys, Silly, Rockhaus, City and the many, many other East German rock bands - live, of course. They are wonderful songs... strong in content, timeless, well-known and loved - cult hits.


Ost- Rock was much more than just light music, because many songs spoke of space, earth and mankind and sometimes conveyed hidden messages. Others described everyday life together and have lost none of their content to this day. "Mich zu lieben" by Rockhaus, for example, is more relevant than ever and is just one of many songs.

Musically shaped by the zeitgeist of the time, East German rock was not only unique, but has remained a cosmos of its own to this day. And it connects several generations! To underline this, we offer 4 different shows. More about this under Programs...


An OSSIS concert is always an experience! If you like or even love East German rock and want to listen and reminisce or sing along at the top of your voice and shake a leg now and then, then you've come to the right place!

In 2024 we celebrate 20 years of DIE OSSIS! To be precise, we have been on the road very successfully since September 2004 and have played around 650 concerts to date. The highlights were undoubtedly three concerts in front of several 100,000 people at the Brandenburg Gate on the "Day of German Unity"! A gigantic backdrop. But the concerts on the Hutberg stage in Kamenz at the R-SA summer festivals with many thousands of spectators will also remain unforgotten. We have also enjoyed playing as support acts for well-known acts such as Karat, City, Münchner Freiheit and Purple Schulz and, of course, on countless large city festival stages, in theaters, cultural venues and clubs throughout Germany. Another highlight has been the Ostrock Deluxe Klassik program with the Berlin String Ensemble for about 10 years. A great homage to many great hits of the East from Veronika Fischer to Dirk Michaelis. Ostrock Deluxe has also existed in a different form for about 10 years, namely in collaboration with very well-known singers of the Ostrock scene such as IC Falkenberg, Dirk Zöllner, Tino Eisbrenner, Werther Lohse, Muck or Wolfgang Ziegler. 2020/2021 was quiet... Corona had and has the country firmly under control. But it will continue in 2022, because dates are planned again. Many say: " ... nowhere else can the inclined spectator experience the well-known cult hits from 30 years of GDR music history in concentrated form like with the OSSIS".
