Oompah Brass

Fee Band


Described by Chris Evans as ‘legends in lederhosen,’ Oompah Brass are the world’s foremost (and only) exponents of oompop. With a line-up of trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba, they’ve dished up Bavarian versions of Sex Bomb everywhere from the O2 to the Alps.


Biography

Formed by musicians from the Band of The Grenadier Guards and the European Union Youth Orchestra, Oompah Brass started out with the firm intention of becoming a traditional German oompah band.

However they quickly realised that novel arrangements of pop tunes carried more appeal than the waltzes, polkas and marches more commonly associated with the genre. They’ve since been described by one of their biggest fans, Chris Evans, as full blown ‘legends in Lederhosen.’

Oompah Brass are now the world’s leading (and only) exponents of ‘Oom-pop’, known for their Bavarian-style re-working of songs like Sex Bomb and Material Girl. They have toured all over Europe (including Germany) and played to 60,000 at the Belgrade Beer Festival.

In the regular line-up of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba, the five pioneers have also performed at the O2 and the Alpine Snowbombing Festival. They are equally at home playing award-winners onstage, performing in cabaret or filling the dance floor.
