In­tro­duc­ing the S-Bahn Band

Westcoast German News - - Table Of Contents -

I would like to start this edi­tion of Westcoast Ger­man News by men­tion­ing my favourite Ger­man band: S-Bahn. Singer & ac­cor­dion­ist Richard Tyce founded the S-Bahn Band in Van­cou­ver in the early 90’s. With a di­verse and eclec­tic reper­toire, the S-Bahn spe­cial­izes in Ok­to­ber­fests both in Canada and the US. High­lights in­clude the “Fall Crawls” dur­ing which the S-Bahn tours the Ok­to­ber­fest cir­cuit. The S-Bahn plays Thurs­day, Septem­ber 17th, 2015 at the Mount An­gel Ok­to­ber­fest at 9:30 pm in the beer gar­den/Bier­garten. This venue is the new­est “Festhalle” and it in­cludes a hard­wood dance floor. Since this year is the 50th An­niver­sary of the Mt. An­gel Ok­to­ber­fest, they will fea­ture a spe­cial brew made for the oc­ca­sion by one of Ore­gon’s craft beer brew­ers, Ninkasi. On Satur­day they will be play­ing dur­ing the an­nual “Keg Tap­ping Cer­e­mony” that you won’t want to miss. Their last per­for­mance will be Sun­day at 4:30 pm.
