& Entertainment 2022
Oktoberfest is our biggest event of the year here at Schulz Bräu! Meticulous planning goes into creating the special 2-week festival. Especially since we do our best to follow Munich traditions as they pratice them today. That means fitting in as much Polka Music as possible!
LynnMarie & The Nashville Polka Guys
“Five-Time Grammy Nominee LynnMarie & The Nashcille Polka Guys make the accordion fun and sexy for a whole new generation. Dubbed “The Dixie Chick Of the Accordion” by Jay Leno, the squeeze box player and vocalist and first female artist ever to win a Grammy nod for Best Polka Album, fuses high-energy rock, pop, country and the traditional music of her ethnic heritage to wow crowds everywhere: from Oktoberfests, to music festivals, coffee houses and all over North America and Europe!”
Pech und Schwefel
“The international party and original Oktoberfest band! The party of superlatives! Fresh & cool sound! The greatest hits live and simply “stoak”! (strong). The latest chart and disco hits, mood music and party classics. With their unique personality and energy, the audience is blown away from the first second. Pech & Schwefel, the band for every event, regardless of whether it is about a party atmosphere at apres ski, fun and atmosphere at an Oktoberfest or tent festival, good entertainment and a good mood at a wedding or dance music at a ball!”
DeLeon Oktoberfest Band
“Spanning 3 generations of accordion players, the DeLeon Family Oktoberfest band offers an authentic Oktoberfest experience like none other. Creating the atmosphere of a traditional “oom-pah” style Polka band with the energy of a live festival band, the DeLeon Band can sing and play all of the classic Bavarian heritage music, as well as more contemporary tunes from today’s Oktoberfest.”
“Waclaw’s live accordion music has been a companion to Schulz Bräu’s Oktoberfest for years now. Not usually a man of many words on stage, Waclaw lets his accordion do the story-telling for him. Enjoy his delightful repertoire as you peruse through the biergarten with a cold, craft beer in hand.”
“Here comes the mighty Polkanauts. …. these guys have to be seen live to be believed – they are that dope. Heavy metal polka, yet still traditional enough to play all the old favorites (“Roll out the Barrel,” “Milwaukee Polka,” “In Heaven there is No Beer” and many more), they also cover Black Sabbath, Slayer,.. and Enuff Z’ Nuff. Donning their blaze orange jumpsuits, they look like they are about to board the space shuttle; instead they embark upon a cross genre journey between Metal/ Rock/Pop and Polka. Spread the word. ”
“Concord Brass was founded in 2001 by fellow brass musicians and church goers. The group has come a long way, playing for many different events and stretching their abilities as musicians by including genres such as jazz, polkas, marches, classical, and Christmas.
A portable ensemble, they can play almost anywhere, and have been seen at picnics, in sanctuaries, on stage at contemporary worship services, outside of retail establishments, in private clubs, and at Oktoberfest, perhaps one of their more memorable performances.”
“We are THE Euro-American Party Band, providing a variety of energetic music that sets the tone of the party. Our vast song list includes many modern and traditional German songs, as well as Pop/Rock, Country, Swing, other varieties of Ethnic music. Our forte is in choosing the right combination and proportion of this variety to specifically fit YOUR function and keep the crowd interested, dancing and having fun. Book today and join us on the ‘Prost-Coaster!'”
Panama City, Florida
“The Czechers were established in 2016 in Panama City FL as four Czechoslovakian guys playing old traditional central European songs, when we realized that beer, accordion and our pub songs were not anymore in our lives as much as we wanted. The opportunities evolved, we were adding more songs for different venues and while playing a lot for Czech and German restaurants, loving beer and good old polka, we naturally steered toward Oktoberfest events where we enjoy the beer, big crowds and all the good time craziness.
We were lucky enough to have added a fiddle excitement to our music performed by another Czech musician, this time lovely Verka who travels from Europe to play with us.”
The Knoxville Polka Kings
“Mike and Sande of the Knoxville Polka Kings start off Schulz Bräu’s Oktoberfest! Their Polka passion shines through when they start performing as early as 5:30AM for our Barrel-Tapping ceremony. These traditional artists feature music on the accordion, tuba, and more! Listening in on this band makes you feel as though you’re in the middle of Munich Oktoberfest. When visiting during the two-week celebration, happily enjoy one of the bands that have been dedicated to Schulz Bräu since the beginning.”
Mountain Top Polka Band
Asheville, North Carolina
“The Mountain Top Polka Band (MTP) is a high-energy band that celebrates German heritage through music and dance. Since 2009, MTP has performed hundreds of events in six states around the south and southeast US. MTP shows present polka music with traditional favorites, alongside Oktoberfest party tunes, German rock inspired pieces, and Scots-Irish songs guaranteed to satify the polka fans and letting others build a newfound love for the genre.
