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.
Thanks so much to Capstick for an amazing night at the University of Bradford! We held a great night of fun and entertainment and couldn't have done it without this great band. Very accommodating from the very beginning during booking and in the lead up to the event to help create one of the best events the Uni has held in a long time. They were very friendly and a lovely group of people and incredibly talented! As a group of students with little idea of a ceilidh they guided us through the dances and the room was full of laughter and a night not to be forgotten for quite some time.
I would highly recommend Capstick ceilidh band not only for their great price but their talent which created a memorable St. Patrick's night for the Bradford Uni students!
