AlpinersUSA - Oktoberfest Band

During Oktoberfest season, AlpinersUSA is configured featuring Margot Turrell, lead vocalist, with yodeling and vocals in authentic Bavarian dialect. For small events during the week, Margot and Joe are available as an Oktoberfest Duo. For large events, we can also expand with horns and/or clarinet for even more vibrant 'Blasmusik' instrumental sounds befitting of Oktoberfest. With the AlpinersUSA Oktoberfest Band providing the headline entertainment at your event, your audience will experience authentic Bavarian and Alpine music and entertainment on par with that they would hear live at a traditional Folk Festival in Bavaria or Austria. AlpinersUSA Oktoberfest Band has performed televised where it opened for Jimmy Sturr at the huge Musikfest in eastern PA (http://www.Musikfest.org) to live audiences of thousands. Click here to see a video sampler of this performance. As the original band to perform at the first Campbell, CA Oktoberfest and street fair years ago, it still performs annually as the headline entertainment for that two-day event with over ten thousand attendees. For a representative sampling of the music performed by the AlpinersUSA Oktoberfest Band, please link to our CD page and sample the ethnic tunes and also the vocals by Margot Turrell on our Alpine Tiroler Land CD. For biographical background on the performers, please link to our bio page Join AlpinersUSA at a number of Oktoberfest venues during September and October where you can Dance, Schunkel — sorry, there's no one word translation for schunkeling! — and Sing along as we play in the spirit of Gemuetlichkeit the authentic music of Bavaria to celebrate here the world-famous Munich Oktoberfest. Prosit! (See Oktoberfests listed on our calendar of events.) Joe’s bands have the wireless technology to wander into the audience in a large venue, thereby connecting with the audience while still providing full sound coming from the PA system on stage. Ask him about this special setup for your event.
