After some deliberation over entertainment for my wedding I decided to surprise my husband to be with a little taste of home…… he is austrian and well they do like their beer so thought let’s get an oompah band and have a giggle and sing song! Oompah band were so helpful and accomodating of our requirements from the beginning. Nothing was too much trouble and they happily discussed ways to make the evening worth it for everyone. Even ensuring my request of the song Deliliah was not a problem. Upon meeting them it was a delight. The entire band was just brilliant. They are the perfect blend of personalities and talent! The entertainment that they provided was exceptional. Crowd participation was ace. It got everyone involved and we know that all of our wedding guests are still talking about the absolute hoot they had. So we thank oompah band whole heartedly for making our wedding day one to remember! I would snap them up without question!
