Lagerhosen | Octoberfest Celebration

  • Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria 42 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)

Lagerhosen was created over laughs and beers at the end of a wedding event featuring the Asheville Second Line marching band. Literally translated as “beerpants“, the underlying concept of a party-polka band was perfect for Beer City USA. Starting with an accordion & Sousaphone base, the group settled on a core of 5 members. At some events, the band has been as large as 16 players.On occasion, the Club Mayhem dancers-featuring the beautiful Ladies of Haywood will join us for stage antics. With popular tunes such as Roll Out the Barrell, Lichstenstein Polka, Ein Prozit and others, Lagerhosen has a powerful and punchy sound. Lagerhosen was the featured band at the 2015 Asheville Octoberfest and has performed at several local clubs and area Octoberfest celebrations such as Lake Lure, NC;Kingsport, TN; and will be one of the featured bands at the Sierra Nevada Octoberfest on 10.24.15
