Harthauser Mus

Famous Bavarian band, Harthauser Musi, will once again lead the hotel's annual Oktoberfest celebration from 29 to 31 October at the Intercontinental Doha The City.

Founded in 1907, Harthauser Musi gets its name from a small village outside of Munich called Harthausen, where the band originated and still practices today, and "musi" is a typical short form of the word "music" in Bavarian. Originally a traditional brass and marching band, Harthauser Musi survived both world wars. In fact, they played as a military band during World War 2. Since then they have maintained themselves as a traditional brass band but also now are known as "Party Band" with an international repertoire. They have played at Oktoberfests all over the world including South Africa, Brazil, Austria and, of course, Germany.

The band members who sing and play various brass and woodwind instruments along with guitar, percussion and accordion, will be outfitted in customary Bavarian dress of Lederhosen and Dirndl. To ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy, Harhauser Musi's show will include a good mixture of traditional Bavarian brass music, rock and pop classics and the typical hits from the Munich Oktoberfest.

The celebration will take place in Al Jawhara Ballroom of the hotel, which will be decorated as an authentic Oktoberfest Hall. Guests will be served traditional German food from live cooking stations along with Bavarian brews.
