Biography

This ‘rock n roll oompah band’ was created 9 years ago with a classically trained brass quintet who met at the Royal College of Music.

They started out in the german-themed clubs and pubs of London playing bavarian oompah music, as a way of paying off their student loans. But they soon began to find playing traditional waltzes and polkas rather dull, so they decided to arrange and play classic pop, soul and rock songs with an oompah beat and a bavarian swing, thereby creating the first-ever Oom-pop!

They now regularly support comedians live on-stage – for example, they recently played for Al Murray, Frank Skinner and Ross Noble during their respective London shows.

They perform in concerts and festivals all over the world. In 2012 they won the prestigious Haizetara International Street Band Festival in Spain, receiving the accolade of “Best Band in the Festival” and a prize of 10,000 euros – their french horn player, Sam Pearce, was also voted “Best Musician in the Festival.”

They have performed on Radios 1,2,3,4,5 and 6. Also on BBC TV, ITV and Channel Four.
