The Bavarian Strollers have travelled the world bringing their unique take on oompah music to anybody that will listen. They specialise in Bier Keller evenings and Oktoberfest parties although they can cater a performance to just about any need; they have done everything from strolling round offices while people work to dancing on top of a mountain in outrageous wigs!
When performing for a Bier Keller night, they can get an entire audience singing, clapping and dancing. They lead a series of Bavarian table dances (they are QUITE different from English table dances) and perform lots of German toasts or ‘Prosits’. they are fully self-contained with their own PA system, costumes and even provide Bavarian music to play in the breaks. They can also turn up and stroll around a venue whilst playing, which works well to start the evening off and introduce the band to the audience.
They can perform at pub nights where the band play pop music in an oompah style. It’s incredibly fun, very new and it’s called 'OomPop'! They have been doing this for a few years and find it goes down a storm. If you want something different for your event or are organising a German themed party, then this is for you. They have residencies at both of the Bierschenke bars in London and The Original Bierkeller in Sheffield, Lincoln and Swansea so if you want to see them in action, you know where to go.
The Band have performed since 1978 and have had some of the country's top professional musicians play with them. They use various line ups of key players, the standard being Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone and Tuba, however they can add Accordion and Drums to change the sound and atmosphere to suit your preference.
The Bavarian Strollers have performed in Germany, Italy, The Channel Islands, Ireland and throughout England. They have played at a wide variety of different venues including Harrods Store, Universities, The Royal College of Music, The Royal Netherlands Embassy, Battersea Bier Fest and the National Caravan Exhibition. The Bavarian Strollers have appeared on numerous TV shows including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and were in the films "Photographing Fairies" and "Weather in the Streets". They have also recorded on the Olive Branch Label.
