GERMAN Polka & Oktoberfest-Band
we play Polkas and Walzes from Germany, Austria and Switzerland and other Singalong stuff including typical Bavarian & Oompah music. The musicians wear authentic Lederhosen/Dirndl (see photo). The Band plays traditional and authentic German Polka- and Octoberfest Music.
The focus is on having fun, entertain and having the audience join and engage with Singalongs, Dances, "Schunkeln" (= Swaying) and other "Oktoberfest"-style songs. Some musicians grew up in Germany playing and singing this typical music.
Besides the traditional German Oktoberfest-music, AlpineSound plays also St.Patrick’s Day & Irish music. (Galway Girl, Whiskey in the Jar, Dirty Old Town, Dublin in the Rare Old Times, The Irish Pub, The Wild Rover, and a few instrumental jigs and reels...).
Also American classic rock & country tunes (Sweet Caroline, Take Me Home Country Roads, Blue Bayou, Achy Breaky Heart, Kansas City, On the Road Again, Margaritaville, Friends in Low Places...), and a variety of other fun and folk-songs (I don't Look Good Naked Anymore, It's Hard to Humble, This Land is Your Land...)!
WHAT OCCASSIONS DO WE PLAY?
The band performs from smaller parties for families and friends to larger corporate events (900+ people).
