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.

The night was a real success!

Geoff and his Bavarian style Oompah band really made the atmosphere at our Bierkeller event. With such a talented band and plenty of audience participation, the night was a real success. ​Thanks for the great night! 🙂

Fantastic from the start!

We booked DDFK for a Bavarian themed night on 11/03/16

From the start they were fantastic, the music was good and uplifting and the interaction with the crowd was brilliant it defiantly got the party kicking,

They were loved by all and we would defiantly recommend them to anybody wanting to add something special and fun to your event or party.

We will most certainly be using them again.

Perfect blend of personalities and talent!

After some deliberation over entertainment for my wedding I decided to surprise my husband to be with a little taste of home…… he is Austrian and well they do like their beer so I thought let’s get an oompah band and have a giggle and sing song!

Oompah band were so helpful and accomodating of our requirements from the beginning. Nothing was too much trouble and they happily discussed ways to make the evening worth it for everyone. Even ensuring my request of the song Deliliah was not a problem.

Upon meeting them it was a delight. The entire band was just brilliant. They are the perfect blend of personalities and talent!

The entertainment that they provided was exceptional. Crowd participation was ace. It got everyone involved and we know that all of our wedding guests are still talking about the absolute hoot they had.

So we thank oompah band whole heartedly for making our wedding day one to remember!

I would snap them up without question!

Tremendous night!

Excellent band!

We booked DDFK Oktoberfest Party Band for a recent corporate event held on a boat on the Thames, so a challenging venue but DDFK were great. As an Austrian Company we were looking for an Austrian feel and were delighted with the selection of oompah music. The band were excellent and really nice people to deal with, we would highly recommend them.

Brilliant atmosphere!

The band were great and created a brilliant atmosphere. It was very traditional, which tied in nicely with our Oktoberfest theme. The band were highly entertaining and looked like were enjoying what they were doing too. The audience (especially our younger guests) couldn’t helpd but stand up and dance along.

High energy performance!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the guys for performing at our event. It really set the atmosphere for the evening and was a great high energy performance that created a real wow factor for when guests arrived. You have been a delight to work with and greatly appreciate you learning our song requests!! Great service and performance all round.

A fantastic night!

I just wanted to pass on some feedback for the Oompah band that Geoff put together for us on the 23rdDecember…..it was a fantastic night and the band were really lovely…..despite a very lively bunch who were definitely in the party mood they managed to control the situation and a great time was had by all! I would have no hesitation in booking them again.

Our client loved it!

I just wanted to thank you and te band for the performance on Friday. It’s been very well received and the client loved it! Please pass on the message to the band.
