We're proud to work with a hand-picked selection of amazing professional oompah bands in the UK.
The UK has a vast array of outstanding professional German oompah bands to choose from when it comes to hiring an oompah band for an Oktoberfest event, private party, public event or wedding in the UK.
Our local oompah bands are selected by invitation only, and all are highly recommended by previous clients based on several factors, including quality, professionalism, punctuality and the ability to get guests dancing.
Our oompah bands for hire are available throughout the year but are particularly popular for Oktoberfest parties, as well as other German and Bavarian themed events.
Hiring a traditional Bavarian oompah band for German-themed events in the UK
Oktoberfest in München (Munich), where the festival was founded in 1810, generally begins at the end of September and lasts until mid-October.
However, outside Germany, one will find Oktoberfest events taking place throughout the month.
It's a time of raucous celebration, of men in lederhosen, women in dirndls (a traditional feminine dress worn in Austria, South Tyrol and Bavaria), lager served in 1-litre "stein" mugs, bratwurst, sauerkraut, dancing, singing and general merriment...
This merriment is always choreographed by an oompah band, usually consisting of trombone, tuba, trumpet, accordion and drum kit – performing traditional Bavarian folk songs, polkas and waltzes.
We've curated a large range of the UK's finest German Oktoberfest bands, all of which are highly skilled at performing the traditional Bavarian songs as well as pop & rock covers in an oompah style!
