German Festival Band, located in Bundaberg Queensland, the Band was established in 1996 so that we could entertain as a Original German speaking Oktoberfest band. We're all, Leo Karnauchow (Accordion and/Tuba) Rita Williams (Keyboard, Vocals and Tuba) and Fritz the Drummer are dedicated in bringing you best traditional music, good fun, and Gemütlichkeit to any festivity.
The band plays mainly in the styles of Ernst Mosch, Slavko Avsnik, Egerland, Slovenian, Bohemia, Bavaria, and from Tirol, with an authentic sound of the best known German and Austrian Blasmusik bands. These are the bands that play regularly at various German Oktoberfests -- and the EuroBand plays the same loved tunes: rolling beer-drinking songs, traditional melodies, our own original compositions and lively polkas and waltzes. Oh yes we play Australian versions too which may surprise you of Leo's predominant tuba sound..!
This is the type of music that gets you to clap your hands, sing along, and dance to the traditional folk tunes usually presented at German festivals -- Music that lifts the soul and defines Gemütlichkeit!
Pretend you're back in 1810, in a Bierstube or small pub, in a village surrounded by the Tyrolean Alps. Listen to your favorite beer hall tunes, dance to the Alpine folksongs, relax, clap your hands and sing along, but most of all, enjoy!
With authentic German and Austrian tunes, the band will entertain for a festival to remember. They will provide the true Oktoberfest spirit. You'll clap your hands and stomp you feet to the popular dance numbers. So what you waiting for.. Talk to us.. 0427 21 2211
