The excitement of heading into our 10-year anniversary of hosting Bermuda’s best and biggest Oktoberfest celebration, is only matched by the anticipation of welcoming back for the 10th show in a row – Oompah Brass. From the get go, their high energy, party making, rocking good sound, and call and respond crowd interactions has made Oktoberfest THE fall event on the social calendar in Bermuda. Playing to over 500 singing and partying locals in the spectacular setting of the Victualling Yard of the Royal Naval Dockyard, Oompah Brass has never missed a beat. The quality of the playing, arrangements of pop and rock songs is beyond compare, and is an absolute one-of-a-kind sound.

We were thrilled to have Oompah Brass entertain us on our wedding day in June – they were phenomenal! It was a very hot day and everyone was outside enjoying the fantastically fun music. Their interaction with us and all our guests was amazing, their sense of enjoyment and marvelous musical talent is why they are in such demand – cannot wait to see them again. Sian + Martin
