A Bavarian-style band in New Mexico? A bunch of guys in leather shorts, playing accordions and flugelhorns and tenorhorns and tubas?
Ja wohl. Die Polka Schlingel, a Bavarian Polka band with over ten members dressed in full Bavarian costume, play authentic "Oompah" music. The band has been in existence for over 30 years (with a few members changing over the years). We play polkas, waltzes, schottisches, landlers, and even Mexican polkas and big band tunes (Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, etc.); we have over 300 songs in our repertoire. It's great to dance to, or to drink beer/wine and just listen: Oktoberfest, May Fest, Fasching (Mardi Gras) parties, Beer Blasts, Wine Fests, whatever.
Accordion, trumpets, flugelhorns, baritones, trombones, clarinets, saxes, a tuba and drums – these guys can switch around for your music enjoyment. And we sing in German too!
So, for some real "Gemutlichkeit" type of fun, hire Die Polka Schlingel for a great time.
