German/Polka-Band
plays Polkas and Walzes from Germany, Austria and Switzerland and other Singalong stuff including typical Bavarian & Oompah music, but also American & Italian Songs. The musicians wear authentic Lederhosen/Dirndl (see photo).

HAVING FUN!
The Band plays traditional and authentic German Polka- and Octoberfest Music. The focus is on having fun, entertain and having the audience join and engage with Singalongs, Dances, “Schunkeln” (= Swaying) and other “Oktoberfest”-style songs. Some musicians grew up in Germany playing and singing this typical music.

The (authentic german) band is based in the San Francisco BayArea (Oakland), but plays also outside the Bay.

They looked and sounded authentic, incredibly responsive prior to the event; easy to work with to tailor the program to the audience; and they were wonderful and very effective getting the (corporate) audience out of their comfort zone and participate and really enjoy themselves! Big smiles and happy people all around. An absolute pleasure to work with! Great experience! Fun for all! Thank you, Polkageist West for a great afternoon!

We hired Polkageist West for our company Oktoberfest and were very happy with their performance. They actively engaged the audience, were highly interactive and incredibly fun! They even organized activities and provided song lyrics to interact with the crowd. I would recommend Polkageist West to anyone looking for a supremely talented band that actively seeks to connect with their audience.
