Back to the White Cross

We’ll be back at one of our favourite summertime haunts, the White Cross, Groeswen just outside Caerphilly this August Bank holiday Sunday. We’ve been entertaining the crowds there foe several years and it’s always a great family day out! There’s plenty of real ales and ciders and you get to laugh at your favourite Welsh…

Bank Holiday Sunday!

We’re very much looking forward to playing at the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival this Spring Bank Holiday Sunday. Join us in the garden at the Bear Hotel for some Oompah fun from six o’ clock!

Farewell 2016

Once again the boys were on fine form in welcoming in the new year at Cardiff Bierkeller. We had a fabulous crowd as always, and short of watching Freddie Frinton in Dinner for One (Google it) it was a wonderful German experience for all. Here’s wishing you a fabulous 2017 with a little sneak peek as we made…

Christmas is coming!

Well there may be just ten days to go ’til the big fella comes down your chimney to deliver all those lovely presents, but the Die Heidelberger Boys have still got a pretty grueling oompah schedule before we see any festive downtime. Ten more days – seven more shows! There’s an extra performance at Cardiff…

The Haunted Bierkeller!

Halloween. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying it’s a great opportunity to see some of the very best fancy dress costumes. At Cardiff Bierkeller we like to make the effort each year, and this time we were billed as the Zombie Oompah Band! So, how to create the authentic zombie look?…

End of the Pier Show

Last weekend saw us making the short hop across the Bristol Channel for our fifth visit to Weston Pier. It’s a definite favourite in the DHB calendar – entertaining the public in the afternoon, then a sell out show in the evening with all the usual oompah antics! The weather wasn’t particularly brilliant but it didn’t…

Bank Holiday Fun!

It’s been a busy bank holiday weekend for the boys – this Sunday we made it outside to play at one of our favourite venues The White Cross in Groeswen near Caerphilly. We’ve played at their annual beer festival for a good many years now and this year’s event was another brilliant day. There were…

#weare1

Last Thursday saw the official 1st Birthday party at Cardiff Bierkeller. Hard to believe we’ve been performing every Friday and Saturday night for a whole year! With extra shows dotted about throughout the year we’ve probably done somewhere in the region of 120 live shows since we first opened to the public on the 8th…

Getting in to the spirit

A couple of the boys did a bit of missionary work in Germany last week. Call it a fact finding mission if you like but three of us found ourselves in the delightful town of Bitburg, home to the famous Bitburger brewery. It seemed a bit wrong to be out in Germany and not don…

A new image!

Some of the Die Heidelberger Boys have been donning lederhosen since the mid 1990s. Except we haven’t. Despite providing thousands with a German style of entertainment over the years, it has to be said that we’ve never subscribed to the authentic leather of the German bier halls. Until now! Hope you like the new look…

A grand night out!

Running the Die Heidelberger Boys operation week in week out can often be tricky especially in terms of personnel. Keeping the stage filled at the Bierkeller every weekend as well as the odd gig on the road means that we need a fairly large pool of players. Add the fact that we all have busy…
