The band was formed by Accordionist Nigel Jackson who, due to his perfect physique, has become better known to audiences as Slim. In his early teens Slim took his first residency at the Bierkeller in Birmingham. Following this he worked with several Bavarian bands which gave him vast experience in the Bavarian field. But Slim was looking for more…
Slim wanted a versatile band that would please all age groups. Capable of working at any venue, supplying what the customer required from traditional Bavarian music to the full Bierkeller party. As no band were capable of supplying this, Slim formed “The Munich Bierkeller Men”. He moulded them to supply a fast-moving cabaret style Bavarian show in which the audience is encouraged to participate with a strong emphasis on FUN!
And we’re talking 100 miles per hour, in your face, fully interactive Oompah show…. louder than any Rock Band! This is an Oompah Band with added extra, perfect for Oktoberfest parties and events!
Since then The Munich Bierkeller Men have become the most sought-after Bavarian Band in the UK. They have appeared on the same bill as many household names, including Frank Carson, Showaddywaddy, Des O’Connor, The Barron Knights, Mike Reid and Jim Bowen. As professionals they have successfully performed at most types of venues including civic centres, marquees, colleges, universities, clubs, hotels, restaurants, live entertainment bars, village halls, theatres, military service camps etc. They have undertaken promotions for Trusthouse Forte, Pioneer, Mercedes, various food and wine companies and most breweries. Regular bookers include The Lions, Police and Fire Services, Young Farmers, R.A.O.B, and the Freemasons. The Munich Bierkeller Men have provided summer season entertainment for Pontins, Holimarine, Center Parcs, Haven Warner and Butlins.
As Slim adapts each show to your personal requirements, the band are happy to play to 30 people in the village hall, or 2000 plus university students. To ensure you get the best possible sound Slim has invested in top quality sound equipment. Stage lighting can also be supplied if required.
The success of The Munich Bierkeller Men is their ability to capture the audience instantly and maintain their interest throughout the full show… which leaves audiences calling for more. With their vast experience and ability to guarantee the success of each function, it is no wonder that The Munich Bierkeller Men are the UK’s No. 1 Bavarian Showband.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
