Pieter Opperman: South Africa, Thank You

I can just say THANK YOU, THANK YOU for an excellent CD.  I wish to congratulate you and your band for such wonderful music.  I am 100% sure that the South African people who attend the Oktoberfest at the Pretoria Deutsche Schule every year will certainly enjoy your music and especially the song “The beer is good”.   What me and my wife really enjoy of the new CD is the variety of songs, the very good instrumentals, excellent vocals (male and female) and then the yodel.  Then I just want to add that the number 13 song “Vaya Con Dios” was a favourite song of mine since my childhood days which is excellently executed on the CD.  I listened to the CD again on my way to the office with the volume quite louder than usual.    To sum up, it is a BRILLIANT CD which you and your band can be very proud of.  I hope you have much success with the selling of it.  Once again THANKS A MILLION for my copy of the CD.  May you go well and please convey my congratulations to your band members.   Kind regards.

Pieter Opperman, South Africa

Paul Bishop: 2010 Peoria Oktoberfest Features the Obenheimer Express Band

2010 Peoria Oktoberfest Features the Obenheimer Express Band

Around the opening days of Munich's 200th Anniversary Oktoberfest, Peoria, IL in the USA also marked a significant anniversary, the 15th year of their Oktoberfest.  6000 people brought their thirst for the German food, beverages and entertainment.  On this special anniversary year for our fest, the entertainment needed to be just right.  We had our "Official Oktoberfest Band," the Spitzbu'am from St. Louis, MO, the Alpen Echos from Cincinnati, OH, the Heidelberg German Band from Quincy, IL and our local favorites, Ratskeller Brummers, Vogel Musik, Al's Pals, and the Lindenhof Echoes - a great assortment of talent - but we still needed something more - a band from the birthplace of Oompah Music, Central Europe. 

This is where a cooperative effort from Dan Foust of the St. Charles, MO Oktoberfest, working with the Peoria Park District and the Peoria German-American Central Society yielded the perfect solution: the Obenheimer Express band from the Elsass region on the French-German border.  Having heard this 9-piece Oompah band before at the Soulard Oktoberfest in St. Louis, MO, we knew this band would be an outstanding complement to our wonderful entertainment from here in the United States.

You need not take this band's praise only from me, because we had 6000 people dancing, singing and schunkeling to the music of this band from Obenheim.  The band kept the audience spell-bound with a variety of lively music genres including German Beer-Hall Polkas, Waltzes and Schottisches as well as American polkas and a few of our favorite home-grown oldies.  Much of the music was arranged by the band's talented accordion-playing leader, Alain Heilbronn, who lead his eight musicians and vocalists tirelessly through hours of exciting entertainment.  As if the mix of wind instruments, percussion, guitar and keyboards were not enough, the lovely vocalists astounded the audience with yodeling that was faster and more precise than I had ever experienced.

The jaws of the audience dropped in astonishment when this band's music resounded from the Peoria Oktoberfest stages!  When the fest-goers recovered a bit, all most could say was "WOW these guys are GOOD!"   With a single voice, the audience and Fest Chairs, Mary and Megan Reichel, are demanding we get the Obenheimer Express Band back to the Peoria Oktoberfest just as soon as we can.  Dan Foust and I have been working with Alain already, hoping that the wait will not be long.  Until then, I am wearing out a couple of the Obenheimer CDs in my CD player and that will just have to suffice for me until this band makes their return to the Peoria Riverfront.

Paul Bishop, Peoria O-Fest Entertainment Chairman

Grégory Mallet: LE LANDERON, Suisse, août 2010

LE LANDERON, Suisse, août 2010

La Fête de la Bière du Landeron existe depuis une trentaine d’années et est l’une des plus importantes du genre en Suisse. Nous avons engagé l’OEB pour notre soirée bavaroise en 2010 et ne pouvons que nous en féliciter. Ils ont fait preuve d’un enthousiasme débordant, lequel a immédiatement contaminé les centaines de visiteurs présents sous notre chapiteau ce soir là. Il a fallu plusieurs semaines pour que leurs mélodies et en particulier «aie aie aie c’est bon la bière c’est bon la bière…. » cessent de nous trotter dans la tête. Nous espérons vivement avoir l’occasion de les accueillir à nouveau lors de l’une de nos prochaines éditions.
