S-Bahn Band

We are excited to introduce a very popular Oktoberfest band S-Bahn to Spokane this year!  Singer and accordionist Richard Tyce founded the S-Bahn Band in Vancouver in the early 90’s. With diverse and eclectic repertoire, the S-Bahn rocks Oktoberfests as well as any other party they are part of. Highlights include “Fall Crawls” in which S-Bahn tours the Oktoberfest circuit – including the very popular Leavenworth Washington and Mt. Angel Oregon Oktoberfests.

Why the name “S-Bahn”? S-Bahn is the commuter train that connects cities in Germany with their suburbs. S-Bahn connects people – brings them together.

Alpen Band

From Northern California. Since 1988, they have been performing German folk music in the Sacramento area and throughout Northern California for Octoberfest, Fasching, Beerfest etc. They perform the best of Polka, Waltz, Samba, Swing, along with the updated styles of Boarisch, Schottisch and Alpine Rock. They feature folk music from the German speaking areas, but also play music from other parts of the world. Get ready to dance and sing along with this wonderful participatory group – Prost!! http://alpenband.com


Enjoy the fun as Oktubafest will grace the stage of Spokane Oktoberfest with an all low brass flash mob!  Definition = lots of tuba players getting together and playing Oktoberfest songs!  We’ve been told aproximately 25-50 tuba players could show up at once playing traditional German drinking songs and polkas!

They appear on the indoor festhalle stage at 12:15 Saturday!

Hazelnuss “Das” Music

HAZELNUSS “DAS MUSIC” The Bavarian American immigrants from Los Angeles, performing original Songs and Bavarian / Oktoberfest feel good music. Every single one of them is German or German decent. From Munich, Landshut, Cologne and the north of Germany. In honoring their roots and traditions Alexander and Andi started to play and sing Bavarian folkmusic. One night at the Oktoberfest in the Bavaria House in Burbank, the group got on stage to perform “lets Celebrate” in front of a huge crowd, and the song was an instant hit. This was the defining moment to get the group together and “Hazelnuss Das Music” was born. Visit their WEBSITE or their FACEBOOK page.

Bavarian Beer Garden Band

BBGB is not your Grandpa’s Polka Band – they are The Rockin’ Polka Band! The Bavarian Beer Garden Band (BBGB) is a uniquely Northwest festival band with an attitude and a twist.

BBGB plays music that ranges from traditional European Alpine to German Pop (schlager) to lively Polkas and well known PARTY ROCK songs. They also can transform into a high energy R&B show that they call the BAVARIAN BLUES BROTHERS! You can’t help tapping your feet, singing along, clapping your hands or dancing to their music, …..and it’s not unusual to see HUNDREDS of people pack the dance floor when they entertain.

Concordia Choir of Spokane (German-American Society)choir_badge_trans_web

The roots of the Concordia Choir in Spokane can be traces to 1883 when a German choir greeted the arrival of the first Northern Pacific railroad train in Spokane. By the turn of the century, numerous German choirs existed in Spokane. In 1911, several of these choirs merged into one organization that has become the Concordia Choir of Spokane. The Concordia Choir is incorporated as a non-profit organization and its mission is to promote the german culture in song. The choir performs several public concerts during the year.
