About AlpinersUSA

AAlpiners_bandlpinersUSA - the SF Bay Area’s Premiere Oktoberfest Band – is a show and dance band that invigorates audiences wherever it performs in public and televised events all around the country, including major festivals in Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Oregon, CA and Washington. The band was founded by accordionist Joe Domitrowich and began performing in the Bay Area over 20 years ago. With authentic yodeling by vocalist and native Bavarian, Margot Turrell, AlpinersUSA performs on par with the best local groups you would encounter in and around the home of Oktoberfest, Munich, Germany, or towns and local folk festivals throughout Austria. Playing everything from Oktoberfest standards like Beer Barrel Polka, to Van Morrison’s Brown-Eyed Girl or big band In the Mood like you’ve never heard it played, or one of their originals like Oktoberfest Blues, AlpinersUSA offers something for everyone in the audience. http://www.alpinersusa.com

oktoberfest5About Golden Gate Bavarian Club

The mountain regions of Bavaria and Tyrol hold deep and time-honored traditions. These traditions include regional dialects, costumes, dances, and music. The members of Golden Gate Bavarian Club, as a not-for-profit association, preserve these values and pass them on to future generations by performing German dances in San Francisco, Oakland and the greater Bay Area in California.  http://www.bhtvgoldengate.org

The InternatioanlsAbout The Internationals

The Internationals is a dance band with the ability to play virtually any style or genre of music. Naturally, they play all the European dance favorites -- polkas, waltzes, schottisches, etc. -- but also mix in traditional favorites from a variety of European countries. In addition, they play a smattering of American jazz, blues, country and even rock-n-roll classics. It's not uncommon to hear a polka followed by a country western classic! 
The Internationals truly play "Dance Music from "Everywhere"! http://theinternationals.com
