Drawing crowds wherever they perform, The Express have been playing at Big Bear’s Oktoberfest for more than three decades (!) and truly have become the festival’s favorite! The Express will perform Sept. 10 & 11; and Oct. 29.
THREE German Bands this year!!!
This year we will have not just one, but THREE bands from Germany! To see more about these bands, click on the band names below to be taken to their respective websites (if available) for more details about them. Warning: The sites might be in German (except for the pictures) and you’ll need your favorite page translator to read them. Just Google “page translation” to find some choices.
New to our event this year is a band called Alpenklänge. They will be entertaining us on the second weekend, Sept. 17 & 18. A more detailed bio should be available soon.
An old favorite, The New Mainflösser, direct from Germany will return for the next three weekends. Just to jog your memory, they are led by Felix (aka the German Elvis) and have joined us several times in the last few years. They’ll be performing Sept. 24 & 25, Oct. 1 & 2, and Oct. 7, 8, & 9.
Then, the next two weekends will bring back a favorite from two years ago, The Aalbachtal-Express, direct from Southern Germany. They will entertain us on Oct. 15 & 16 and Oct. 22 & 23.
As you can see, it’ll be a very exciting year! So make your plans now to join us!
