DDFK (Die Dorf Fest Kapelle) Oompah Band is the UK’s leading Oktoberfest party band. We have a wealth of experience and have travelled the world, performing at a wide variety of events, from the Oktoberfest at Clarke Quay in Singapore, to performing on stage with the amazing German Schlager superstar, Peter Wackel in Nürnberg! We are an extremely versatile oompah band and can tailor our show to suit your event. Whether you’re after traditional waltzes and polkas, German party schlager hits, well-known pop songs, or a mixture of everything, we will ensure that you and your guests enjoy an authentic Oktoberfest-style evening.


DDFK Oompah Band Fully Fronted Vocal Show

If you’re looking for the full Oktoberfest experience, then this is the option for you. It is perfect for beer festivals and any kind of Oktoberfest-themed party. We start the show with a selection of the most popular Schlager hits. These can include Olaf Henning’s ‘Cowboy und Indianer’, DJ Ötzi’s ‘Anton aus Tirol’ and our good friend Peter Wackel’s ‘Scheiss Drauf’. These are followed by some English hits that made their way to Munich, including ‘Hey Baby’ and ‘Living Next Door to Alice’. We then finish with some of our favourite songs that we know will fill the dance floor. We have a large catalogue of songs, and we are happy to take requests on the night, but if you have a specific song request, please let us know in advance and we will get it arranged for you.


DDFK Oompah Band Instrumental Strolling Show

Our instrumental show is a fantastic option if you’re looking for a fun-filled event, with plenty of upbeat party music, just without any vocals or a frontman. This works well for corporate events, as well as weddings and birthday parties. We will get right in amongst your guests (if that’s what you want!) and get everyone in the party mood. We’ll do our best to ensure that everyone is up dancing and singing by the end of the night. This is also a good option if set-up time is limited as we don’t normally use PA when strolling.

If you think you might like to book our instrumental show, but can’t quite imagine how it works, then why not come down and see for yourself at the wonderful bierkeller, Munich Cricket Club in London. We play there every Thursday and Saturday night, so drop us a message if you’re planning on coming down. We may even have a beer with you!


DDFK Oompah Band Entertainment Tailored to Your Event

We can also provide a more traditional strolling show, with German waltzes and polkas. This works well as background music during dinner functions and drinks receptions etc. If you’re after more of a mixture, do let us know and we will tailor our show to your event.

Whichever option you decide to go for, DDFK Oompah band is the perfect choice! Whether you’re holding an Oktoberfest-themed event, just looking for something a little bit different to surprise your guests, DDFK is your band! We are available to perform at public Oktoberfest events, beer festivals, birthday parties, weddings, stag parties, hen parties, corporate events, product launches, marketing and promotional events, commercial recordings and TV and film work. DDFK has had many TV appearances, including BBC 1’s ‘ The One Show ’ and ‘Comic Relief’.

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!

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.

I would have no hesitation in booking them again.
