Prostbusters' Song list

Ein Prosit
In Munchen steht Ein Hofbrauhaus
Jetzt gehts los!
Um die Ecke rum
Nacht Leben.
Bier her, Bier her!
Lustig und zufrieden
Ein Rundgesang
Wir sind die Sänger vom Schwartzwalde
Student auf einer Reis'
Kommt ein Vogel geflogen
Die Lorelei
Grad aus dem Wirtshaus
Auf, singet und trinket
Trink mer noch ä Tröpfche
Im tiefen Keller sitz ich hier
Die Wacht am Rhein
Liechtensteiner polka
Ach du Liebe Augustin
Alte Kameraden
Das Wander ist des Mullers Lust
Der kuckuckswalzer
Der Treue Husar
Ein Heller

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

There's no singers with this line up, we do have singers with our Prostbusters EBand though. We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable.

Do you have different line-up options?

Oompah: Accordion + Tuba + Snare Drum Accordion + Tuba + Snare Drum + Trumpet Oompah + Covers: Accordion or Clarinet + Tuba + Snare Drum + Trumpet + Trombone Accordion + Clarinet + Tuba + Snare Drum + Trumpet + Trombone

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £125.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up 20mins without PA/Lights, 1hr with PA/Lights before the performance time.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 1m by 5m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc

The band was great! It was a little different to what our fans usually get to experience on matchday but overall feedback was great. The band themselves were punctual and extremely professional. The best bit was the variety of songs on their playlist, something to suit every occasion. Thanks again guys and will be recommending you!

The Prostbusters are the perfect band for any occasion - they play such a great plethora of songs and are a pleasure to have around. You'd be foolish not to hire them or enjoy them!

Prostbusters performed wonderfully at an Oktoberfest event at the Caledonian Club. They absolutely captured the mood of the evening and were instrumental (no pun intended!) in the success of the event. They were excellent, mixing old favourites with up-tempo classics. Would really recommend these guys- they were absolutely brilliant !
