A Bogan Bavarian Oompah-Ty
A Bogan Bavarian Oompah-Ty! When Bavarian Folk meets Aussie Rock!
A Bogan Bavarian Oompah-ty is a fun music show featuring Australian rock and pop songs played in a German oompah style. The performers wear lederhosen, play brass instruments and the songs are arranged in such a way which is both recognisable and tongue-in-cheek. The songs are linked with funny stories and audience participation is encouraged. It is just fun for the sake of fun.
Form and Style
This is a 60min music show, playing lots of well Australian pop and rock songs in a humorous German oompah style. We encourage audience participation and to singing along.
Community and Audience Engagement
We are available to perform in any location to help promote concerts – either in city centres, busking, live to air of radio etc.
We are all music teachers and would be available to work with local schools in the lead up to performances. In some cases and with a few days planning, we can involve school students in our performance.
We have flyers/posters mocked up, press photos, an active instagram account and short performance videos in lots of different settings.
