    A friend of my sister would like to book an Oompah Band for an event in the Pontefract area this summer.

    Anyone have any contact details or recommendations?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Contact Dave Hebb at Brighouse. I've been to a couple of his Bavarian nights and they are very entertaining. Quality players too. (Dont worry,they arent all Brighouse, I dont think it will cost a fortune!)

    Speaking as a guy who ran a fully pro Oompah Band for a long time, I would say that if you want a slick professional, well rehearsed show with a proper PA system, lighting rig, electronic synthesiser Accordian and a programme that includes Bavarian bierkeller music, singalongs, pop party classics, comedy, drinking competitions and fun and games with prizes etc., then I wouldn't touch any of the amateur brass band based groups with a barge pole.
    Go for a Stompers style professional band.
    Google "Oompah Bands" and you'll find loads of them have websites.
    Contact Stompers :- Frank Chislett 01422 202 420.
    Now that I've retired he's the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try Grimestein Oompah Band.

    They wow the crowds at Butlins every year

    Been in existence 23 years on and off, and guaranteed a brilliant night.

    There's always Karl's Bravarian brass. You may be able to get details from Lloyd Preston at Gretton Silver Band.
