Oompah Brass

For a Band Like No Other

About Oompah Brass:
Oompah Brass was created 10 years ago. They are an extraordinarily talented classically trained brass quintet who met at the Royal College of Music. They started out in the german-themed clubs and pubs of London playing bavarian oompah music, as a way of paying off their student loans. But they soon began to find playing traditional waltzes and polkas rather dull, so they decided to arrange and play classic pop, soul and rock songs with an oompah beat and a bavarian swing, thereby creating the first-ever Oom-pop! They now regularly support comedians live on-stage when they are touring – for example, they recently played for Al Murray, Frank Skinner and Ross Noble during their respective London shows. They also perform in Concerts, Awards Ceremonies and Festivals all over the world. In 2012 they won the prestigious Haizetara International Street Band Festival in Spain, receiving the accolade of “Best Band in the Festival” and a prize of 10,000 euros – their french horn player, Sam Pearce, was also voted “Best Musician in the Festival”.

The band have performed on Radios 1,2,3,4,5 and 6. Also on BBC TV, ITV, Sky and Channel Four.

The Finer Details:
Oompah Brass is made up of five top end musicians – 2 trumpets, french horn, tuba and trombone. They are the perfect solution if you are looking for something quirky and fun for your event. Their arrangements of classic pop and rock songs is a sure crowd pleaser. Their standard set lengths are 2 x 45 minutes but can be tailored to the needs of the client. They can dress in either lederhosen or go for a more relaxed casual look. For under 150 guests the band can play totally acoustic. When hosting for more than 150 people a PA is required. A live music consultation is available to discuss your needs.
