12/2/17 Just recovering from a great weekend at The Original Bierkeller and Bierschenke. Starting this Thursday we'll also be the house band at the brand new Exeter Bierkeller so for our South West fans you can now catch us 3 times a week. Check Facebook for timings
1/1/2016 Happy New Year, For those of you who celebrated with us then we hope your heads aren't as sore as ours. See you in a Bierkeller somewhere soon.
27/12/2016 So that was a tiring night. great crowd at The Original Bierkeller followed by a super late set at The Viper Rooms, Harrogate. Now for a couple of days off before our 3 night end of 2016 omm-party in Sheffield!
24/12/2016 Just finished 8 hours of Oompah in Sheffield. Stein count - 13, Sausages - 7, Tunes played - hundreds. Thats us done (til boxing day). Have a good Christmas.
22/12/16 So we just played Jack Whitehalls Christmas party...
9/12/2016 Another rammed night at The Original Bierkeller. We're just preparing to head down again. Let the oompah loose on some more office parties!
8/12/2016 Great day yesterday. Headed to Icap charity day
to assist in 'refreshment' and entertainment yesterday.
Caught up with a few celebrity's before heading round the
corner to a gig at Bierschenke. It was a long day but we
had some great beer to keep us going.
2/12/2016 Last night was a smash as we did Band-e-oke at
The Original Bierkeller. Very dangerously letting the crowd
choose the set makes for a good fun gig, especially when
they request tunes we've never heard of. Fortunately our
in band geek Tom was on hand to smash out the 'Bieber'
and 'Miley' hits we'd never heard! Looking forward to
getting our hands on the new promo video today so watch
1/12/2016 Xmas season is upon us. Were celebrating in the
usual style. Bier and Bratwurst. We're all over the country
get your Oompah fix. We'll be at Bierschenke every week
as normal and in The Original Bierkeller every Thursday,
Friday and Saturday over the festive season.
25/12/2016 Its time to get the red hats out and dust off
the Mistletoe. Here at Oompah HQ we've been busy
rehearsing all the christmas classics. There's something
quite surreal about playing Slade in an oompah band,
where you can find us.
13/11/2016 What a week. Bierschenke was busting at the seams, Word got round about the stein challenge and people just kept appearing all night. The Original Bierkeller was mental with everybody jumping on the benches. We think more steins were drunk than ever before, and that was just our trumpet player
16/10/2015 Having been rushed off our feet the last few days running around the UK it was nice last night to be back in Bierschenke for Oktoberfest. We had the 6 piece band out and the sound was huge. BMW came down for a party and we shared the stage with the hugely popular German comedian Henning Wehn. It was hard to play the last set with the band still in stitches!
12/10/2015 We're broken! We spent 2 days with Oktoberfest UK at Brunells Old Station in Bristol. The venue looked amazing and the bandstand stage from Free Love Group was the finishing tough to a great event. The crown was amazing, the venue was packed and we had everyone dancing on the benches, dancefloor and even had people pole dancing against the stage! We need a day off now before heading back to London for Bierschenke on Wednesday
10/10/2015 So The Dispensary is over for another year. It was a crazy second night and almost all the beer was drank dry! Great stuff for Annie and her team of Barmaids. We also had entertainment from Frauline 'Linzi' and our 'Traditional Bavarian Angle Grinder', Claire Aves. I don't think there was a sober soul by the end of the night.
9/10/2015 Day one of The Dispensary Oktoberfest down and one more to do before moving shop to Bristol for Oktoberfest UK. We had table dancing, many many beers and even a staff conga line last night. Looking forward to more of the same tonight...
7/10/2015 Busy day back at Bavarian Strollers HQ today. We're washing all our socks and shirts and making sure we have all the equipment in working order for the next week of HUGE Oktoberfest celebrations. We have 2 days at The Dispensary Oktoberfest, London this week and 2 days at Oktoberfest-UK in Bristol. Check the websites for tickets and details. Also don't forget to catch us at Bierschenke all week in Liverpool Street, London.
5/10/2015 So yesterday we played at the 4th Annual Eversden Beer Festival. Many stiens were drank and the beer was top quality. We had a great night in the village hall and it was totally rammed with villagers. Today is a day of recovery with a private party this evening at Bodo's Scholss in Kensington
03/10/2015 Another incredible night at Bierschenke. The bar was rammed and the atmosphere was insane. We also spent the night sampling their own craft brew Bierschenke Weißbier which was created by the Bavarian brewery Müllerbräu in Neuötting, Just outside Munich. Its brilliant and coupled with the music and crowd in the setting of the most authentic Bavarian bar in the UK it makes you feel as if your at Oktoberfest in Munich. Prost!
01/10/2015 Pinch, punch, the first of the month... And what a way to start Oktober. We spent 12 Hours in Heathrow Airport playing for the travellers at the brand new Lufthansa departure gate at Terminal 2. A very long day but great fun. Plenty of cheerful travellers and even got a few people dancing, Check out the pictures here.
29/09/2015 Well that was a week.... We've been in London (a lot) and Bath, Stroud, Liverpool and Berkshire. Today is music writing day ath the Bavarian Strollers HQ ready for another busy week. If your jetting off from Heathrow on Wednesday look out for us by the Lufthansa terminals as we spend the day giving heathrow travellers a dose of Oompah! We'll be in Bierschenke towards the end of the week as always and jetting off to Lichfield, Cambridge and a few other places in between.
