Oktoberfest 2017 With Oktobär & Friends


Oktoberfest is such a festive time in our Haus; it’s our biggest season of the year. Returning this year is the band from Germany, Oktobär! Under the leadership of Marc Wedmann, this band will have you out of your seats as they perform sounds of the season that range from traditional Oktoberfest to modern day German and American rock and roll.


Of course everyone wants to hear the yodeling songs as well as the anthem of the Haus, In München Steht Ein Hofbräuhaus, but with this band you will hear so much more. Their repertoire ranges from Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash, John Denver, and Jimmy Buffett to Shania Twain, Men At Work, Bon Jovi, and even Prince! They also cover the Spider Murphy Gang, a wildly popular rock and roll band in Munich in the 1980s!


In addition to Oktobär we have special entertainment set up for you. Following are special dates and groups performing:
