We had an Ocktoberfest in the Church Hall so what to do ? I lived in Germany for several years a long time ago but I vividly remember the Ocktoberfest Oompah bands with very fond memories. I looked for a cd with all the classic tunes and I wasn't disappointed. The cd arrived well packaged and at very short notice, quite a bit quicker that the estimate. A bit pricey but very good quality. Lots of other people had promised to bring Ocktoberfest music but on the day nobody did except my wife and myself and it made the event authentic even if the older guests later insisted on singing songs from the Blitz, mainly because they all new the words.

Used as background music for Oktoberfest lunches at school. Readjusted the playlist and was very successful.

HASH(0x8e279198) out of 5 stars Not Much Oktoberfest Music Here 1 Aug. 2006
By Dudley Delany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As manager of "The Oktoberfest Webring," I am always on the lookout for CD's of good Oktoberfest music. I found this CD disappointing because it not only featured various artists (instead of just an Oktoberfest band), but also contained a significant number of non-Oktoberfest selections from a CD called "Folksongs From Bavaria."

HASH(0x8e2791ec) out of 5 stars No 'Stale Beer' Here 26 April 2012
By James Ellsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 'Octoberfest' CD is special, it has every quality of musicality that one might wish for in traditional German music, done with the immediate feeling of today. As another reviewer has noted, this may be an 'Oktoberfest' band type of performance. Well, no one will be shouting and talking while this band is playing and their vocalists are singing. There is too much wonder in this music; too much to listen to and too much to (hopefully) remember. To start: this CD is one of a series of 'Distant Winds' travel compilations. If they are each of this quality, I will be buying (and reporting on) more of them. My purchase was motivated by travel...to Germany, but not for Oktoberfest. We travelers get to 'enjoy' long air flights and it seems like a good time to 'get a jump' on the local culture by reading our travel notes and by listening to iconic local music on our MP3 players. This is the 'German' traditional CD to buy 'if you're buying only one', to paraphrase a Michelob beer commercial of my youth.

I have elsewhere on Amazon reviewed other traditional German music CDs: Voyager's 'German Favorites' and Kado Music's 'I Love German Folk & Drinking Music' being most similar in content. Each of these CDs will find an audience with choral music lovers and they will be listened to with pleasure at certain times. Those times will be when a concert rendition (let me say, 'sanitized' or 'standardized') arrangement is wanted. They remind me of my trips to Philharmonic concerts or to 'Pops' concerts. This CD is far from that. It has the immediacy of the moment in every note. The program is wonderfully varied, exhibits fine musicianship and is produced with resonant and clear sound quality. The CD begins with rousing marches--Oktoberfest traditionally began with a march--and moves on to a program with featured vocalists and instrumentals that rely on traditional instrumental ensembles, including a coronet section, clarinets, double bass, zither, (on 'Barthaloma') and accordion. This is the 'gold standard' instrumentation for traditional German popular music, such as can be found in beerhalls but is treasured elsewhere, as well.

I will not comprehesively single out cuts on the CD because I loved each and every one of them. When you want to listen or when you want to sing along, there will be songs you will gravitate to. All, right...I will say this program is well-thought out, beginning with a rousing march and ending with a tear-producing, pride-engendering 'Patrona Bavariae'. This is a complete program and will be loved by anyone who looks to the best in German culture.

HASH(0x8e7fd1bc) out of 5 stars Perfect background music for an Oktoberfest party 10 Jan. 2012
By Victoria Hatton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this as background music for my Oktoberfest party. I figured the price was fair was a CD that I will only listen to about once a year. The music really set the mood for my party and I'm glad I bought it. I'm just a wee bit disappointed that the CD wasn't longer. Had to keep hitting "play" on the CD player.
