George passed away in 1934 and his wife Emma became president. Soon after, the brewery management was passed on to his son, Alfred Marti. Al was known as the fun-loving sort who enjoyed music almost as much as the beer he brewed. This was evident in the musicians he gathered together and sponsored, a group fondly known as the Schell’s Hobo Band. Known for their circus-style music as well as their antics, the band has become famous across the region and still entertain young and old to this day.
