Blaskapelle Milwaukee has become one of the premiere European wind ensembles in the United States! Our band is comprised of 18 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.
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®.
We are currently recording our second album, which will be released in 2017 in celebration of our tenth anniversary! In 2017, we will be making our sixth appearance at the Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest in Chippewa Falls, WI, and are excited to announce that we will be performing for the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company's 150th Anniversary celebration!
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 Ernst Mosch.
