An 80’s Dance Floor Oom-Pah-Ty

Just when you thought Bavarian brass music couldn't get any more neat-o, enter the lederhosen-clad Menschen of Musik, Oompah! Not content with just joyful beer-drinking party sounds, they've teamed up with Libby Hammer to create a thundering one-hour 80s musical romp of Teutonic proportions.

This is a high energy live music show that jams 30 classic 1980’s hits into 60min. Oompah (4-piece brass band) is joined by legendary Perth vocalist Libby Hammer and a retro drum machine and the show is basically a giant medley of all your favourite songs and is a lot fun.

The songs have been arranged to be in a German oom-pah-pah style to add to the silliness and fun, with all the musicians dress up in lederhosen and dirndl. Libby has a German background so she includes some translations of verses to songs like ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ and ‘U Can’t Touch This’ to add to the comedy of the show.
