We had "Die Musikmeisters" perform for our Oktoberfest event, and they did not disappoint! They played all the best Oktoberfest hits, and did a wonderful job interacting and engaging with our guests. Their German outfits were amazing, as well! I would highly recommend Mike Knauf Music for your next event!

Mike and his group were so wonderful. I hired them for our corporate networking event and I couldn't be happier. They were on time, professional and fun! My attendees all said that Mike and his group were the highlight of the event. I highly recommend hiring them for any kind of oktoberfest event.

I still can't believe Mike and the Nippersink Rogues where able to play my St Patricks Day party. I feel so lucky to have booked them in time. It was such a treat having them there. Mike was very good about making contact early on and following up along the way before the day of the party. Their music was beyond amazing.

They were great! They tailored their performance to my Mom. They had the horn and the bells and really did sound like a Bavarian German Band. Highly recommend them!

From start to finish, working with Mike was a pleasure. His communication and level of professionalism were topnotch. I was looking for a jazz trio to perform on our patio in Door County, WI as a surprise for my husbands 60th birthday. Mike, Mark, and Gordon were perfect. The music they provided was exactly what I had hoped for. They were entertaining with just the right amount of volume. Everyone could enjoy them and at the same time hold a conversation. I would hire Mike again in a heartbeat and hope to have him back again soon. I highly recommend Mike Knauf Music.

This quartet was great. They matched with our party perfectly. We're very interested in custom fitting the music to our desires and the mood of the party. We got a nice mix of light classical pop and Jazz. Perfect for our celebration
