Northport Yacht Club has hired Papa Bavarian for their Oktoberfest Dinner for several years now. He wears lederhosen, plays the accordion, sings in German and strolls between the bar and the dining room. Papa Bavarian is very personable and it is very apparent that he enjoys entertaining. We will definitely hire him again.

Playing special requests such as Take Me Out to the Ballgame, New York New York, and My Way, Josh was beyond accommodating.
