Starting in April Alpine Thunder has been regularly performing at the Edelweiss and Schnitzel Platz restaurants.  We are anticipating a far better Spring/Summer schedule in 2021 compared to last year.  Many venues are opening up and have confirmed their Oktoberfest celebrations for 2021.  View our updated schedule under “Shows” on this web site.  Prost 2021!

Goodbye Hofbrauhaus Chicago/Rosemont

Alpine Thunder at the Hofbrauhaus Chicago/Rosemont

For seven years the Alpine Thunder team performed every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, including private parties, the annual Von Steuben Day Parade down Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, Oktoberfest, and other events at the Hofbrauhaus Chicago/Rosemont.  We enjoyed providing authentic and genuine German folk music for all the guests, and all the wonderful interactive events like the featured guest  to play the big HB bass drum in a parade around the restaurant, the tuba parade with flags for the kids, the duo alphorn performances and much more.

Alpine Thunder and the Chicagoland area will miss this unique live music venue.

2020 Oktoberfest Season with COVID 19

No surprise that all our numerous big stage Oktoberfest events for 2020
have been cancelled due to Covid-19 along with a temporary closing of
The Berghoff Restaurant. However, the Alpine Thunder team has
an Oktoberfest schedule with the Edelweiss, and Hofbrauhaus, and a
scattering of other venues.

Pandemic and Alpine Thunder Performances

The Pandemic cancelled all our performances starting in the middle of March.
We are just beginning to perform in the outside beer gardens that started
in the last weekend of May.  Beautiful weather greeted us for the entire
weekend.  We will update our Facebook page and Shows section of our web site
with performance status through June and the future.

Rare Tyrolean Mountain Alphorn

Alpine Thunder team member, Jim Langenberg, has added a new valve alphorn to his performances. As we know there were only three of these made by a German instrument company. We have given the new alphorn a knickname: The Rare Tyrolean Mountain Horn.
