Tips for Organisers


The Oompah Band brings PA, mics and lighting and only needs a mains power socket, 4 chairs and some beer!


The Oompah Band needs sufficient space to set up (5m x 3m).


For Bierfests and German themed evenings encourage guests to wear Bavarian style outfits.


Most successful evenings include German style food and drink.


The Oompah Band provides 2 x up to 60 minute sets of entertainment including Dancing, Singing, Games and Competitions. Why not provide some prizes for the winners?

This autobiography is an enjoyable read over 150 pages and tells my story as a trombonist, musician and entertainer. It follows my life from the first encounter with a trombone in 1962, through my early career as a freelance professional in London, changing to music education and culminating in starting and running the Oompah Band.
