Saturday, September 18th

11:00 am – DRL Band

An original rock ‘n’ roll band, heavily influenced by over 5-decades of British music.

This lively duo are seasoned veterans of the music scene and have been playing together for over 10 years. They plays top 40’s covers that will get you dancing & singing along.

4:00 pm – Meskales

Ska isn’t dead, not if Los Meskales have anything to say about it. This local latin ska band from Madison, takes the genre that had a brief commercial dalliance with punk in the 1990s, and marries it with Latin and surfer rock elements.

5:00 pm – Tap the Keg

No Oktoberfest is complete without the traditional tapping of the keg ceremony!

5:15 pm – Tom Brusky Polka Band

An authentic, third-generation polka-variety band is comprised of talented, award-winning musicians that can rile up crowds with all the beer hall favorites like Roll Out the Barrel!

7:45 pm – Soggy Prairie

This 5 piece, ear-pleasing bluegrass band is the perfect way to finish day one of our festivities.

Sunday, September 19th

11:15 am – Tap the Keg

We’ll kick off Day 2 with another traditional tapping of the keg ceremony!

11:30 am – Alpha Romeos

A band with local roots in MoHo! They’ll deliver re-fried funk, Cajun boogie, soul, R&B and blues.

2:15 pm – Taylor and Von

Do you like everything from 90s, to 2000s rock, to a little bit of pop, country and 80s? If that’s the case, then come out to see Taylor & Von close down our festivities.
