Oktoberfest began in 1810 as a royal Bavarian wedding party. It has since become the largest secular celebration on earth, attracting millions of participants annually.

Country Western

Hay Fever

A rip-roaring, knee-bashing good time. Entertaining audiences for 20 years here in San Diego.

Country-comedy at it finest. Every one on these musicians has been rejected numerous times from other bands for being too crazy and self-absorbed. Since they all suffer from the same personality disorders, they were introduced to each other by the bands that wanted to get rid of them. Kismet! It was like completing a puzzle. None of them noticed how outgoing and entertaining the player next to them was, so nobody was jealous. The  perfect match!

Sci-Fi

Alien Fever

Up to 7 aliens playing recognizable science fiction theme music and original weird alien sounds. Weird clothes and faces. Unusual instruments. Outgoing and bizarre. Perfect for ambience and dance. They also play recognizable dance music when people are ready to let their antennaes up and party!

50s

Ma Belle & The Ringie Dingies

Many Americans look back on the 50's as a simpler and wholesome time, of prosperity, cherry cars, and the birth of Rock & Roll. This period, merging with the early 60's, also gave rise to Motown, folk-rock, surf, and the British sound

Encompassing all the great styles of this era and more, Ma Belle & the Ringie Dingies present a powerful, light hearted, nostalgic show for your entertaining and dancing pleasure

The band performs in authentic dress of the 50's (poodle skirts & bobby socks, leather jackets & plain white T-shirts, etc...)

60s&70s

The Gang Bongers

A colorful, warm-hearted take-off on the 60's

In this time of humanitarian idealism and radical experimentation, musical artists stretched their wings, some soaring higher and higher in their quest for enlightenment, free love, or.... a buzz

Wearing appropriate 60's duds (long hair, tie-dyes, fringes and bell-bottoms, mini-skirts and boots, head-bands, bangles and love beads, nehru jackets, etc.) The Gang Bongers become 60's personas, staying in character throughout the show with catch-phrases and tongue-in-cheek humor

A enegertic, dance-crazed homage to the 70's

Wearing appropriate 70's threads (bell-bottoms etc... 

Holiday

Rapt Presence

Traditional carols and popular songs, as well as some beautiful yet lesser known carols from Europe and around the world. In keeping with the seasonal theme of good cheer and brotherly love, and our appreciation of ethnic and artistic diversity, we include music from sunnier climes. We've spiced up our musical melting pot with some tropical songs and grooves. By adding Caribbean reggae, calypso & soca, latin styles, jazz, gospel, surf and country for extra flavor, we've created a California recipe all our own. We think you'll find it very tasteful

We are dressed as "Island Elves", Santa's helpers with sunny smiles blending seasonal themes with vivid tropical fashions. We can wear aloha shirts & tropical dresses with matching Santa hats, or warm red vests with artistic African animal themes

All I can say is I had dozens and dozens of guests contact me afterward that said our wedding was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding. I owe the fun to your professional service!
