Oktoberfest 2019 Comes to a Close!
Oktoberfest 2019 was a blast! We started with a fun performance in Seven Mile, Ohio. Then continued to visit many locations in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and North and South Carolina. #RT161HW also played our second Oktoberfest Blowout for our family and friends. Also great to play for family and friends at Sandusky's North Coast Oktoberfest and Great Lakes Brewing Company's "Month of Oktoberfest". And then who can forget Dayton. Our fourth year in Dayton! Awesome crowd! Then on the road for a great second year in Grand Rapids, where we headlined the weekend for a rockin' crowd with the great burmeister that put the crowd into a standing, boisterous EinProsit! We hit the road for a long weekend where we hit a few awesome breweries in the Carolinas. And then finally, coming to a close, we played in our home town of Columbus at St Mary's Church for great two-day event. We are now filling dates for 2020. Remember, we will bring our professional sound system and polka style to make your event a success!
