Performance: 2 x 45 Minutes or 1 Hour

Backing: Live Band

Area: UK & Europe

Formed by some of the UK’s most versatile brass players, Oompah Brass started out with the firm intention of becoming a traditional German oompah band. However, they quickly realised that novel arrangements of pop tunes carried more appeal than the waltzes, polkas and marches more commonly associated with the genre. They’ve since been described by one of their biggest fans, Chris Evans, as full-blown ‘Legends in Lederhosen.’

In the regular line-up of two trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba, the five pioneers have performed in iconic venues across Europe such as the Montreux Palace Hotel in Switzerland, the Hammersmith Apollo and the Olympic Stadium in London (in which they were the first band to perform live). They are equally at home playing on stage, on the streets, or entertaining audiences in comedy events: their Edinburgh Fringe shows in 2009 and 2010 attained five-star reviews and they were also winners of the 2012 Haizetara International Street Band Competition.

For a band like no other, we invite you to introduce yourself to the magical world of Oom-pop.
