Die Dorf Fest Kapelle was formed in 1995 by our versatile and charismatic frontman, Geoff Moore. Over the years, we have undergone some changes, embracing new styles and faces, growing stronger with each passing year. We started out with the classics – waltzes and polkas – but soon found our groove with pop covers and German Schlager hits. Now, our shows are a blend of tradition, Schlager favourites, and the kind of party anthems that make Oktoberfest unforgettable! Die Dorf Fest Kapelle transformed into DDFK in 2016 when we realised the challenge everyone faced in remembering and pronouncing our original name!


Our roaming performances really took off when we teamed up with Munich Cricket Club in 2016. They wanted more than just music; they wanted an experience. So, we started partying on their robust benches and tables every Thursday and Saturday night, and Fridays during Oktoberfest and Christmas. We are very lucky to have been their resident band since then and always look forward to partying there every weekend.


As a band, we’ve been all over the place, performing in numerous countries across the world! From Malaysia to Hong Kong, Singapore to The Maldives, Indonesia, The Philippines, Dubai, and Qatar – you name it, we’ve been there! However, we’re not just limited to the far-flung spots; we regularly play in Germany too. It’s a massive honour for us, a UK-based oompah band, to hit the stage there. Oh, and did we mention our good friend and schlager sensation, Peter Wackel? We’ve teamed up with him for some unforgettable gigs like his annual Hüttengaudi in Nürnberg and his Oktoberfest Party Boat in Köln. Not to mention the good times we had at his Golf Trophy in Mallorca.

Professional, friendly, patient, flexible.

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle were superb! They got our Oktoberfest really going with games, yodelling and great music! They were very energetic and created a really enjoyable and funny evening. One German guest even said “it’s just like bieng at home its so authentic!”

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you so so much for being a part of our wedding reception at Trinity Buoy Wharf on 30th December.

It truly was incredible when the band walked in, and it really set the tone for the rest of the day. People haven’t stopped talking to us about how great you were.

We are awaiting the photos through from our photographer, but we will be sure to share these with you when they come through and please let us know if there is anywhere you’d like us to leave a review, as we would be happy to write one.

Exceptional entertainment.

Following Friday’s Oktoberfest at RAF Coningsby, I have been bombarded with messages praising the exceptional entertainment provided by the band Die Dorf Fest Kapelle. It was indeed a night to remember, though I hope to forget the hangover more quickly! On behalf of all who attended the function, I would be delighted if you could pass on my sincere thanks to the band members. Rest assured I will be highly recommending that they be booked for next year’s event as soon as date can be confirmed. I would like to thank you also for your support in finding and securing the booking.

One of my most memorable parties.

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle made my Dad’s 60th Birthday one of my most memorable parties. They were seamless and entertained a group of 70 strong party goers of varying ages. They were really friendly and I wouldn’t think twice about having them back in the future.

Our guests loved them!

Great fun with loads of positive comments from guests. And genuinely positive comments not just being polite. They loved them! I Would certainly recommend them without hesitation, the guests were falling off the benches with enthusiasm. I still keep getting positive comments and cards from friends!

They held everyone’s attention!

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle Oompah Band were a great addition to Northampton’s German Christmas Market for Dec 2014.
A fabulous combination of traditional oompah music, combined with Lady Gaga, The Pet Shop Boys, and a smattering of techno and disco….
The faces of the punters at the beer keller were a picture, as they realised just what they were dancing to..!..just great.
From beer supping officer workers on their lunch, to pensioners on shopping trips, they held everyone’s attention, with much smiling and dancing.
Great outfits, great musicianship, good times.

Brilliant night!

Brilliant night at Eaton Golf Club, thank you so much really enjoyed the evening, have a look at the Eaton Golf Club Facebook page I have posted tonight.

Great night!

Great night at Amherst School on Saturday night! Thank you! A perfect way to end my days in the PTA! Took the whole day yesterday (and a lunchtime curry) to recover though!

Definitely recommend to book again!

Everything was perfect. The Band performed very well and especially Geoff did a really good job in entertaining the crowd and he supported me in an amazing way. I am not running the event next year but I will definitely recommend to book this Band again next year. It couldn’t have been better and the guests enjoyed the evening very much….thanks again for your help. Take care!


This band are fantastic! They played at the RAF Northolt Bierkeller and were brilliant. So flexible to our needs and put so much energy in to the night. Great music, dancing and games, thank you!
