Hammerstein is a wonderful, eclectic, entertaining band fronted by the charismatic Andreas Beckett. We had a wonderful time as the band played many international hits and crowd pleasers. From “Jack the Knife” to “Besseme Mucho”, I loved it. Also the audience participation and getting everyone to dance and move around was a laugh riot. I really couldn’t stop laughing.
My experience with the band was top notch. Professional and respectful.
Hammerstein Berlin was hired for an employee event. We were looking for something a little different that was fun, and boy, did they ever deliver. Hammerstein Berlin not only had the room rocking and the crowd clapping and singing along, but it was by far the best employee event we're ever had. People left the party on cloud nine and for days were singing their memorable polka version of "I'm Too Sexy For This Shirt". Andreas is the consummate performer and leader of the band who masterfully handled the crowd. Hire Them! You won't be disappointed.
Response from Hammerstein Berlin:
Thank you for the review! We had a blast playing for your event!!
Hammerstein Berlin played at the Alpine Village Restaurant on New Years Eve 2018. They played a variety of music throughout the night and there was something for everyone. What a great playlist. As a bonus, Andreas sings in multiple languages. They really kept the crowd dancing. Many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. It was a pleasure to work with Andreas and his band. I would highly recommend the Hammerstein Berlin Band for your event.
Response from Hammerstein Berlin:
It was awesome to play the New Years Eve party at Alpine Village. Great venue, lots of dancing and tons of fun!! Thanks for having us!
What a night! We booked Hammerstein Berlin via GigSalad for our company’s annual event, and they exceeded our expectations. If you're looking for 'opera meets big band' to impress your clients and give back to your staff, Andreas and his guys are the band for you! Thank you for a memorable evening that has not stopped being discussed in the office since.
