GRAND ISLE FIRE BRIGADE STILL LOVES TO PLAY OKTOBERFEST! But in summer we get asked to do all kinds of events. And there's no other band like this one. We have an extensive list of historical Americana, an extensive list of college fight songs (!), endless waltzes and polkas, a little Dixie, 1920's speakeasy, show tunes and NEW! We're getting asked to host sing-alongs with tunes like Sweet Caroline, YMCA, In Heaven There Is No Beer, Obla di Obla da, Take me Out to the Ball Game and a Patriotic Medley suitable for Memorial Day, Veterans Day or to commemorate a loved one. We has also added a street drummer for wedding day “Second Line” Parades (Oh dem Golden Slippers, Mardi Gras song, Here Comes the Sun, When You're Smiling). Many of these genres came at the suggestion of our customers, so if you have a special song request, a unique promotion, and a little lead time we may be able to arrange the song of your choice for a special event.

We are still entirely mobile and require no amplification, so if you want to have a wedding, memorial, party or surprise event in a place without electricity or roads, no other band can bring it like GIFB!


We have clips on youtube and a facebook page you can use to view our performances. Our performance at the Woodland parade (in a historic fire truck!) is one of my favorites ( ). This demonstrates GIFB's flexibility for different venues and circumstances.

We play Harry Alford's wonderful arrangements as well as bring the fun of oompah to the masses. Five musicians with extensive experience in previous bands formed the group in 2010 and have since performed in Redding, Elk Grove, Woodland, Grass Valley, Mountain View, Clear Lake and Sacramento.

Our music would have been typical during the holidays in Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom or even at the turn of the Century in the U.S. If you like what you hear, let us bring a little bit of European style to your next event!

Outstanding performance. Did their homework and accomodated the preferences and tastes of the audience. Would definitely hire them again.

The Grand Isle Fire Brigade were a total delight for all of our guests. They kept everyone engaged, including sing-a-longs and even the "chicken dance". Many of our events with our club have guests leaving very shortly after dinner. Not so with this band! I would hire them again without any reservations!

GIFB was exactly what we were looking for to entertain at our neighborhood gathering. Everyone had a good time. The band came prepared with a large repertoire and took requests as well. I would request them again, in a heart beat.
