About
The Holzhackern Oktoberfest sound is built around high-energy arrangements of the
traditional Bavarian songs, always with a full three-piece horn line --- trumpet, tenor sax, and
trombone. Shows include English and German vocals, audience participation dancing and sing-along, plus lots of very danceable international music.

We picked up the style of leading Oktoberfest bands from Frankenmuth,
Allentown, Milwaukee, and Helen, and first appeared as the Holzhackern for a 1983 New Year's Eve party at Veronika's
German Restaurant in Winston-Salem. Over the past 26 years, we have performed for
German-American clubs (Winston-Salem, Augusta, Charlotte, Clarksville, Spartanburg,
Fayetteville), at civic Oktoberfests and Sommerfests (Columbus Ohio German Village,
Savannah Riverfront, Augusta River Walk, Charlotte, Hickory, Raleigh, Myrtle Beach,
Winston-Salem, Cookeville, Statesville, Ft. Bragg, Greer), at resorts and German
restaurants (Grove Park Inn, The Homestead, Helen Festhalle, Weeping Radish,
Waldhorn), and at private clubs throughout the Southeast.

On those rare occasions when someone shows up at our Oktoberfest and really doesn't know the Chicken Dance, nor when to shout "Hoi, Hoi, Hoi!", nor what to do as the first or last person on a polonaise line…well, our vocalist and Gemutlichkeit-specialists, Heidi and Gunther, conduct a short training session in proper "Stimmung Im Zelt" behavior. An old-fashioned MarschWalzer is held every performance. The City of Irondequoit, NY currently holds the record with over 120 couples filling the dance floor!

Everyone loved them! Two weeks after the event I am still hearing "They are coming back next year, right?" As the event planner, they made my job much easier. They are no fuss, flexible in assisting with recognizing our sponsors and welcomed the opportunity to officiate the crowning of our Lil Oktoberfest King and Queen. Correspondence was effecient and minimal, serving to put me at ease in knowing that I was dealing with truly professional musicians. Over 1500 in attendance for our first annual Oktoberfest, and nothing but praise. A huge Thank You to all of the members of The Holzhackern Tyrolean Band... See you next year!
