What would Oktoberfest be without great music. For 2012, we are bringing back all of our popular musicians. We’ll start the day with the tradition of the local band performing traditional polkas, marched and waltzes. Of course, Summit County’s own T.A.G. will kick it up a notch. And, the evening will explode with polka madness with the Polkanauts. Don’t miss a minute of the toe tapping good time!
Polkanauts - Bringing polka fear & destruction to the masses, the Polkanauts combine their favorite musical genres to put on one heck of a fun time! Yep you guessed it, they play traditional polkas with a metal influence. But some prefer the metal music with a polka beat. There’s something for everyone and no one goes away disappointed.
Those Austrian Guys – Leading the dancing, singing and toasting is the ever popular T.A.G. Hailing from Austria, the members of this group ensure you will have fun at Oktoberfest. Whether you prefer Polka, Schottische or Waltz dancers will get their fill. Kids will enjoy the Chicken Dance or perhaps the Hokey Pokey. And, when you get too tired to dance, you can join your friends at the table for a little Schunkle.
Summit Concert Band – Formed in 1982, the band consists of local and visiting musicians from Summit and surrounding counties. Thanks to the encouragement of Those Austrian Guys, the band added Oktoberfest music to their repertoire. The band first performed for the Breckenridge Oktoberfest and then added Frisco. In 2008, the band was proud to be added to the line-up for Denver’s Oktoberfest on Larimer Street. The band will kick off each day of Oktoberfest with a variety of polkas, marches and waltzes. This year the band has added the most popular song played at Oktoberfest in Munich to their performance. Any idea what it is?
