My wife and I had a good time at the Oktoberfest however we were a little disappointed in the music. The bands themselves were excellent but they played more modern type of songs instead of the traditional Oom-Paa type of German Beer Drinking music that we had always enjoyed in the past. The inside band started playing some Elvis music and we promptly left. Also, although it is a nice gesture to include the music of other ethnic origins, too much time was spent on this and I really didn't go to the Octoberfest to listen to Scottish Bag Pipes and watch Irish dancers. They were very good though. We did in fact enjoy these performances but it did detract from the true mission and celebration of the traditional Octoberfest.
