The Bavarian Strollers have been an established German Oompah Band (Bavarian Band) since 1978. The band only uses first class professional musicians and is based on a traditional Bavarian band consisting of 2 clarinets, a trumpet, trombone and tuba.
The Bavarian Strollers are one of the country's most successful Bavarian bands (German Oompah Bands) and have played all over the United Kingdom, their main strength being "German Bier Keller" or beer cellar nights. They have a vast repertoire of both traditional and popular German music, as well as English sing-along tunes. There are vocals in both English and German and they play in traditional German Lederhosen costume. Should it be required, the band can be augmented to a seven piece by adding accordion and drums to produce a stronger sound while still keeping the authentic Bavarian feel.
The Bavarian Strollers have performed in Germany, Italy, The Channel Islands, Ireland and throughout England. They have played at a wide variety of different venues including Harrods Store, Universities, The Royal College of Music, The Royal Netherlands Embassy, Battersea Bier Fest and the National Caravan Exhibition. The Bavarian Strollers have appeared on numerous TV shows including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and were in the films "Photographing Fairies" and "Weather in the Streets". They have also recorded on the Olive Branch Label.
