RSB Oompah Band at the Leamington Beer and Music Festival (Saturday)

  • The Band Factory Althorpe Street Leamington Spa, England, CV31 United Kingdom (map)

Leamingt-Oom-Pah was formed in 2013 following a panicked call from a well loved local pub who were desperate for a last-minute band to play at their beer festival after a cancellation. We told them that we had an Oompah Band at our disposal (we didn't) and we could certainly play at their festival (a dubious claim).

Jump forward four days, we've rustled together an eight-piece band, ordered some music (but not had chance to look at it in advance) and were psyching ourselves up for the gig. After a 2 1/2 hr performance, the manager came up to us an immediately booked us for the following year!

Since then, we've been polishing the act and are now proud to gig as LEAMINGT-OOM-PAH, playing a wide variety of music including the classic German tunes (Fliegerlied, in München Steht Ein Hofbräuhaus & of course Ein Prosit) and a mixture of more modern popular music from around the world.

We promise to have even the shyest of you up and dancing/singing before the night is out!
