In 2009, an Oktoberfest "Oompah Band" was formed at Emmanuel Lutheran Church and School in West Asheville, North Carolina. Made up of volunteers form the church, the members practiced traditional polka songs and marches. The group received such a great response, they were asked to play again the next year. The leader Hans took the lead to put the band out there for other opportunities to play and it took off.
The Mountain Top Polka Band name became official in 2010 and has played in three states and numerous festivals, parties, restaurants, and Oktoberfests!
The band base continues to grow and throughout the years has included accordions, singers, baritones, tubas, harpsichord, clarinets, trumpets, drummers, guitars, bells, and so much more.
Band members dress in traditional German attire and takes control of the audience by teaching polka dance, the traditional "Chicken Dance" and other crowd favorites guaranteed to get your feet moving.
