"The BEERBARRELS" are a 3 piece Oompah-pah dance band who have been performing professionally for approximately the last 40 years.

The instrumentation of our band consists of:
1) Midi Accordion          (The midi gives the accordion a large range of  orchestra affects)
2) Various Saxophones (Baritone Sax, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Soprano Sax)
3) Drums 

Our favorite time of the year is "OKTOBERFEST", at which time we change our presentation style of being a 'dance band', and become more of a 'show band'.  As an Oktoberfest band, we not only play the great traditional Oompah-pah music and German 'drinking songs', but we also strive to amuse our audiences with visual affects as well as getting them involved with Oktoberfest antics such as Yodeling, Beer drinking and singing contests.  

We don't pre-plan our sets like many other bands.  We prefer to try and create a spontaneous "party atmosphere" where both the audience and "The Beerbarrels" enjoy themselves.  We strongly believe that when "The BeerBarrels"  are having fun and present a lively party atmosphere, then the patrons are also likely to have a memorable evening.  Over the years we have become very accomplished in presenting our music, and as a result have many repeat "Oktoberfest" clients such as: 

   - Whistler Mountain resorts (Performed for the Whistler Oktoberfest for 3 years for
     approximately  1600 People.  We have also performed at other Whistler Mountain
     venues such as "The Brewhouse Pub Oktoberfest", wandering musicians through
     Whistler square, and various hotel  grand openings.

   - Hollyburn Country Club, Vancouver Country Club,  Hazelmere Country Club
