Retroberfest Retroberfest

Music, it’s all about the music!

The George Kash Oktoberfest Express

George Kash

George is Gemutlichkeit personified. George has been the longest running Bavarian entertainment act running and as well, rolling in the barrels for tapping for the past 49 years. The self-described professional entertainer has become a party icon in Ontario and far beyond. He is the undisputed “Mr. Oktoberfest” as the leader of the oompah-pah band the Oktoberfest Express. George employs his infamous interactive techniques, getting right into the audience and bringing people into his act in a way that would make any rock star envious. He also performs his trademark move – drinking two beers while standing on his head. (Chill reminds you to always drink responsibly and not try George’s shtick at home.)

The Lulu's Band

Lulu's Band

KOOL HAUS is happy to announce that the Lulu’s Band is once again in our entertainment lineup.  Their performances are well known throughout Southern Ontario and more.  This group has grown to include new fans of all ages and have become a popular attraction at festivals, etc.  This band is a guaranteed ‘party’ wherever they play.  They keep the dance floor hopping with the best dance music from Classic Rock to Current Hits, and even a bit of good ole Country.

Paul James

Paul James

We listened to you all and back by popular demand, Juno Award winner Paul James will be back in the KOOL HAUS! Mr. James is generally acknowledged as one of Canada’s finest R & B guitarists and has played with the greats of the genre that include Bo Diddley, John Hammond, and Lightnin’ Hopkins.  Paul James is an extraordinary singer/guitarist who captures the excitement from 50’s rock and shapes it into a vital sound for the 80’s and more.
