The Hop Pickers

Today's radio Prague's Soundczech: http://www.radio.cz/en/current/soundczech states:

"Today's song is from the very first Czech musical Starci na chmelu or The Hop Pickers. The song is called - 'The story you are about to see'"

The group that sings that sounds very fun. I'd like to hear more of them. Are they a group by chance, as the picture on the site suggests, or is it simply some actors in that particular musical, therefore one can not find CD's of them?

The movie is from 1964.
About band - I know only, that one from trio is well-known Czech actor Josef Laufer. Probably they weren't real band, only for movie purpose.

I like this movie.

It - in essence - classic theme "love against authority protest story" ;)

It was no real group, the names of the three guitar players are Josef Koníček, Petr Musil, Josef Laufer, from them Laufer (singer) being probably the most known one.
The songs were sung by that time very popular singers: Gott, Zíma, Malknechtová, Štědrý.
