The Platte Valley Arts Council, The Chug-N-Tug Tractor Club and Wyoming Arts Council are bringing The Hof Band to perform in conjunction with Copper Days Tractor Pull Festival in Encampment, Wyoming. The dance be will be on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 6-10 pm at the Grand Encampment Opera House in Encampment. Cost includes dance & light meal with ticket price of $20 at the door; children under 12 are free. Cash Bar.

Since their formation the Hof Band has played the Alpenhof Lodge every Sunday during the Winter Season and every Wednesday (outside on the deck) during the summer season. They are known to have fun and create enthusiastic crowds.

The Hof Band plays polka in the Alpine tradition. They have many traditional polkas and try to honor polka legends like Whoopee John and Frankie Yankovic in their performances. They also play tunes that have become Oktoberfest favorites like Country roads, Sweet Caroline, I like Beer, and the Pennsylvania Polka. In the mix there is also ballads and waltzs like Edelweiss and the Blue Eyes waltz while also ready to engage the crowd in An Ein Prosit!, Schnitzelbank, or Chicken Dance. But of course in the set is the "the Beer Barrell Polka".

The Hof Band has played Oktoberfests such as the Snake River Brew Pub Oktoberfest, The Grand Targhee Resort's Oktoberfest, The Wort Hotel Oktoberfest, the Westside Yard (Victor, Idaho) Oktoberwest Days, and the The Wurst Festival. In addition to Oktoberfests in Casper, Pinedale and more.

Hope to see you in Encampment, Wyoming in September, 2021.
