Blaskapelle Milwaukee has become one of the premiere European wind ensembles in the United States! Our band is comprised of 20 unique and talented musicians from Wisconsin and Illinois. We perform for a variety of events including: Oktoberfest celebrations, private and corporate parties, and German festivals. Be sure to check out the Milwaukee Alpenbläser and Tally Ho Brass for half-liter sized ensembles with full bodied sound that we have created to keep the barrel rolling for any size event.
In 2011, we had the honor of performing at Miller Park for "German Heritage Day" which was hosted by the Milwaukee Brewers (MLB). In 2015, we headlined the first-annual Oktoberfest at Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, MO. In 2016, we made our second appearance at the nationally recognized St. Charles Oktoberfest in St. Charles, MO, and performed for the first-ever HOGtoberfest Bike Night at the Harley-Davidson Museum®. In 2017 we had the privilege of performing for the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company's 150th Anniversary celebration!
In 2021, feature performances include our ninth appearance at the Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest in Chippewa Falls, WI, as well as our tenth appearance at the incomparable German Christmas Market of Oconomowoc.
We draw our style and inspiration from the finest bands across Europe and the United States. Such groups include Dorf Kapelle, Blaskapelle Gloria, Fegerländer, and, Der Blasmusik König, Ernst Mosch.
