Okanagan Falls, B.C.
“The BEERBARRELS” are a 3 piece Oompa-pa dance band who have been performing professionally for approximately the last 30 years.
The instrumentation of our band consists of:
1) Midi Accordion (The midi gives the accordion a large range of orchestra affects)
2) Various Saxophones (Baritone Sax, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Soprano Sax)
Throughout the year we perform for various private functions such as weddings and, anniversaries, but we also perform at public functions (Pubs, Beergardens, Clubs).
Our favorite time of the year is “OKTOBERFEST”, at which time we change our presentation style of being a ‘dance band’, and become more of a ‘show band’. As an Oktoberfest band, we not only play the great traditional Oompa-pa music and German ‘drinking songs’, but we also strive to amuse our audiences with visual affects as well as getting them involved with Oktoberfest antics such as Yodeling and Beer drinking contests.
