Oompah Pah Band
An Oktoberfest Experience
Vancouver Rheinlander Oompah Pah Band is a Vancouver, BC based group that plays authentic Oktoberfest, Oompah Pah Pah and Polka music. This band plays the most famous Oompah Pah Pah "Drinking Songs" and Oktoberfest music made popular at celebrations in The Munich Hofbrauhaus. Oktoberfest drinking songs are not only a Bavarian tradition, but also, a way for all the people in the community to come together and pay tribute to the year's bountiful harvest.

The Vancouver Rheinlander Oompah Band likes to propose a personal toast called "ein prosit der Gemutlichkeit" to each participating neighbor and guest who attends the celebration. The toast signifies friendliness, acceptance, warmth and cordiality, the idea of rejoicing in relaxation with friends and family. With the drinking of good beer and the dining on good German food, the band likes to say goodbye to another good year celebrating in traditional Bavarian style.
Happy Oktoberfest Everyone!
Peter Wishes You "Ein Prosit"

magical experience of Oktoberfest is expressed with the popular "Schunkle Lieder" medleys.
"What is Schunkeling? "
It is when you........
- drink beer and sit together
- link arms with friends sitting next to you
- start to sway, to and fro, in time to the oompah pah beat
- and sing-a-long to the drinking songs
The Vancouver Rheinlander Oompah Band makes schunkeling fun at any Celebrative Event.
What about the fabulous happy sounds of the Beer Barrel Polka? Yes, this dance is lively and fun for everybody to enjoy. It will keep your toes tapping and your feet gliding across the floor.
