hey there, we’re the Bavarian Camels


Bavarian Camels are a six-piece brass group specialising in virtuosic and high-energy performances of rock and pop classics.

Formed in 2017, we began as a traditional Bavarian Oompah band. These days however, you won’t hear any German marches or polkas - we may still be clad in lederhosen but our repertoire of ‘oompop’ music is drawn from the likes of AC/DC, Queen , Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to name just a few.

Bavarian Camels are this year’s resident band at Oktoberfest.ae at the Westin Golf club, Abu Dhabi.

allow us to introduce the camels

Mark Gibson

Mark is the #man. His life is spent breaking down the complexities of life into easily digestible, digitally friendly bytes. #this and #that, you’ll find him #livinghisbestlife #blessed #i❤️bavariancamels

Simon Hilberding

With his signature untamed hair and love of BBQ’s, Simon hails from Australia, because every band needs their token Aussie!

Mike Altree

Short and Welsh, but we’ll try not to hold that against him as well, Mikey plays the Euphonium!


Andrew McCoy

Despite looking one of the oldest, Andrew’s the youngest member of the group. Problem is, he wasn’t around when most of the tracks he plays were written!

Kevin Bird

A man of many talents, not only does Kevin play the sousaphone, the tuba, the trombone, the saxophone, the double bass, oh and fix them as well, but he looks happy doing it!

Ron Vint

Rhythm isn’t all he’s got! Ron keeps us on the straight and narrow in the only way he knows how…epic groove!
