Wedding - Westgate On Sea, Kent

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.

What event planners say about our suppliers


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.


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.


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!
