Frequently asked questions

What is an Oompah band?

An oompah band (pronounced um-pa) is a type of musical group that is typically associated with Bavarian and Austrian folk music. Oompah music is a form of traditional, lively, and often upbeat German or Bavarian folk music. The term "oompah" is an onomatopoeic representation of the rhythmic sound made by the bass instruments in the band. Oompah bands are often seen performing at beer festivals, Oktoberfest parties, and other traditional Bavarian events. They are also popular at weddings, parties, and other gatherings as their lively and energetic music is guaranteed to get everyone up and dancing.

What instruments are in a Oompah band?

Oompah bands typically consist of a variety of instruments, including tubas, trombones, trumpets, accordions, and drums. The tuba, in particular, is known for its distinctive "oom-pah" sound, which gives the band its name.

How long do Oompah bands play for?

An oompah band will typically play do two 45-minute sets but can play for up to three hours, with breaks in between sets. Sets of longer than 3 hours are more unusual but every band has its own standard timings, so it's always best to check with them first. The length of an oompah band's performance will depend on the event and the client's request. For example, at a beer festival, an oompah band might play for several hours throughout the day. At a wedding, they might play for a shorter period of time, such as during the cocktail hour or reception. It is important to discuss the length of the performance with the oompah band you've hired in advance. This will help you to ensure that they are able to meet your needs and that your guests are entertained.

Do oompah bands take song requests?

Yes, most oompah bands will take song requests if you contact them in advance of your event. Oompah band music is usually traditional German and Bavarian songs or covers of modern pop songs, but bands are also often happy to learn new songs if you have a specific request. Of course, the band's ability to accommodate song requests will depend on a number of factors, such as the complexity of the song, how much advance notice they have, and their overall repertoire. However, most oompah bands are very accommodating and will do their best to fulfil your request. Bear in mind that this may incur an extra fee as the band will have to take time to practice and perfect the song before the performance.
