The name of the only official Oktoberfest band comes from where it was founded: Kirchdorf am Haunpold near Bruckmühl. The festival band was founded in 1870 by a group of village musicians who performed on all secular and ecclesiastical occasions. Traditional brass music was the focus in the musical repertoire of THE KIRCHDORFER® in the first decades. In 1974 the band took a step towards a more modern direction that was revolutionary at the time and integrated keyboard, electric bass and electric guitar into the formation. THE KIRCHDORFER® also expanded their repertoire with contemporary titles. The changes were inspired by their idol James Last, whose typical happy sound they still like to play today.

There are many Oktoberfest around the world, such as so-called Oktoberfest bands or Oktoberfest bands, who may have seen an Oktoberfest tent in Munich on TV, but as it is, original Oktoberfest bands are rare: since 1994 we have been the official Oktoberfest band in the hacker festival tent at the Oktoberfest in Munich!
