Eine Kleine Oompah couldn’t have been more perfect for our Bavarian night at Cardigan Castle. Musically the band were superb but their real strong point was their fantastic interaction with the audience and the carefully formulated set of songs. It provided enough authentic Bavarian Oompah to provide the Oktoberfest feel but was brilliantly interwoven with more familiar contemporary pop and traditional Welsh songs to get the crowd going, dancing and singing! We can’t wait to have them back for another event soon!

“Eine Kleine Oompah Band is a unique and entertaining musical group that performed traditional German oompah music at our Oktoberfest event at Oakwood Theme Park. Their lively performance and infectious energy brought a fun and festive atmosphere to our event. Not only do they provide traditional German tunes but their unique brand of Welsh themed Oompah and of course, their pop and rock set really brought down the house! The band consists of talented musicians who play a variety of instruments, including trumpets, trombones, drums and more. Their skilled musicianship created a rich and vibrant sound. What sets Eine Kleine Oompah Band apart is their ability to engage with the audience. They interact with the crowd, encouraging participation and creating a sense of camaraderie. Whether it's leading sing-alongs or teaching traditional German dances, they ensure that guests were getting involved and having a great time. Overall, Eine Kleine Oompah Band is a highly entertaining and talented musical group that brings the spirit of German oompah music to life. With their lively performances and audience engagement, they are sure to leave a lasting impression on any event they perform at. Looking forward to having them back at Oakwood Theme Park again!”
