Oktoberfest is not just in October – it is year round!  One Step Ahead Of The Law is the only full time band in the area that plays traditional Oktoberfest music and the up to date party music of the Munich beer halls. With a dazzling array of music from traditional polka to contemporary German hits, we are the musical brigands best suited to bring Oktoberfest to you.
