Die Schunkelmeister

German and Bavarian Oompah Band

Since its formation in 1986, Die Schunkelmeister German & Bavarian Oompah Band has gained an excellent and enviable reputation for superb musical performances which exactly recreate the traditional Teutonic ambience and boisterous conviviality found in the massive Bierhalle at the Marienplatz in Munich, Bavaria

Due to the professionalism of this performance, Die Schunkelmeister is widely regarded by event managers and party planners as the United Kingdom’s premier ensemble for infusing authentic Germanic ambience into prestigious corporate hospitality events such as product & flight launches, sales promotions, company expansions and developments, anniversaries, etc. When required to play for the more raucous, ‘thigh-slapping’ generic-type of party event, Die Schunkelmeister ‘ups the ante’ by introducing a programme of Drinking Songs and authenticated Germanic games and competitions in order to ensure en masse audience participation

Led by Bandleader and Stimmungsmacher Hansl Mueller, Die Schunkelmeister has, as would be expected, an extensive repertoire of the most well-loved and well-known German & Bavarian songs and melodies, ranging from Marches to Waltzes and Schunkeln to Schuhplättler. Examples derived from the band’s play-list include: In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus; Trink, Trink, Brüderlein Trink; Die Dorfmusik; Unter dem Doppel Adler; Alte Kameraden; Rosamunde; Bier her, Oder Ich fallum; Reit im Winkl; etc – all of which are complemented by the world-renowned Drinking Toast: Ein Posit der Gemütlichkeit. When requested, the band can also play Austrian, Swiss & Alpine melodies

Composed entirely of first-rate, BBC musicians, the band’s standard musical line-up consists of Clarinet, Accordion + Vocals, Guitar and Tuba, with all vocals sung in German. Further instrumental augmentations include: Trumpet, Trombone and Drums. Finally, to complete the package, the band is supplied fully-costumed with a professional-quality PA sound system

Die Schunkelmeister’s corporate client list: Bayerische Landesbank, LIFFE, Lufthansa German Airlines, Mercedes-Benz, DZT German National Tourist Office, Sixt GmbH & Co Autovermietung KG, Deutsche Bank, Imagination, London City Airport, British Midland Airways, Liebherr GmbH, and many more

‘ Ein Prosit der Gemütlichkeit ! ’

Footnote: Die Schunkelmeister were selected by Imagination to perform at Holiday Inns International’s 40th birthday party because the event’s producers ‘could not find a better band in Germany’ !
