What We Do

In August through October, you will find the Klaberheads at your nearest Oktoberfest beer tent, leading the charge in fun! The rest of the year, the band takes on a completely different musical appearance and make up. The Klaberheads perform at all types of venues from conventions to summer concert series, and even dances. They host their own Christmas Concert, New Year’s Eve dance, and Big Band Show – a popular event in Hamilton that draws a sell-out crowd.

From crowd participation numbers to polkas with a twist, from Big Band classics to rock ’n roll, the Klaberheads are accomplished musical entertainers that bring a high-energy connection to the audience. Versatility is what makes this talented group of musicians the band that’s in demand. The Klaberheads are the band for ALL SEASONS!
