Golden wedding anniversary from 7pm at the Smart and Simple Hotel in Tunbridge Wells. Looking for 50s/60s songs
Hi I would like to know if you have a web to hear your songs. I am doing some drinks for my birthday bbq on the 6 June at 4pm and wonder how much are your services for 1h Thanks
It's my husband (43rd) and sons (5th) birthday and they both love michael jackson. I want to give them a party with a great mj tribute act. I'm currently trying looking for a venue and it will be 20th August hopefully.
Evening band playing a set of upbeat acoustic/folk tunes is the priority. As an addition, ideally, would like a second set towards the end of the night of more obvious 'party' tunes but understand that may not be everyone's thing. Also, option to provide pre recorded music between/after sets, but no worries if this isn't something you offer.
It will be at Orpington Royal British legion. Band to play at 20:30-21:30 and then resume from 22:00-23:30
It will be in a tipi on a school field. We will have access to power, etc. We were wondering if you could give us a price on 2x1 hour sets and also a dj for before, during and after please? Thanks :)
Die Dorf Fest Kapelle Oompah Band were a great addition to Northampton’s German Christmas Market for Dec 2014. A fabulous combination of traditional oompah music, combined with Lady Gaga, The Pet Shop Boys, and a smattering of techno and disco…. The faces of the punters at the beer keller were a picture, as they realised just what they were dancing to..!..just great. From beer supping officer workers on their lunch, to pensioners on shopping trips, they held everyone’s attention, with much smiling and dancing.
Dear Mike, thank you for playing at my grandad's funeral. You sounded amazing and it added that personal touch. everyone commented on how professional you were, looked fantastic in your dress uniform and mostly how great it sounded. Thanks again mike!
The night went very well and people really enjoyed the band. Only problem was the band wasn't loud enough and we ah e to move then from where we Isley out our bands mid way through so the Bay Area could hear them. To be honest it was much busier than we expected so it wasn't a fault of anyone just an issue we experienced.
