About Swinging Bavarians

The Swinging Bavarians is a German band based in Central Florida that plays traditional German Bavarian music and polkas as well as a wide variety of musical styles for all audiences to enjoy! Bill Schoenfeldt is the leader of the band and he was born in Nurnberg, Germany in the state of Bavaria. He started the group with his brothers and close family friends and now the band has grown to include his three children. During Oktoberfest season, the Swinging Bavarians perform in traditional Bavarian attire, Lederhosen (that’s right, leather pants) and Dirndls. They play the favorite songs of the Oktoberfest season, to include the ever famous “Chicken Dance” and of course all your favorite Beer Drinking Tunes! The Swinging Bavarians have performed for various groups and organizations throughout Florida, other states, and in Caribbean countries. The Swinging Bavarians German Band is looking forward to celebrating Oktoberfest with you this season. Let us bring a little bit of the German (Bavarian) culture to your party.
