Enjoy traditional live music all weekend long from Trachtenkapelle and The Helmut Fricker Band.

Comprised of a group of musicians, spanning all ages that make up the town band of Beaver Creek's sister city of Lech Zürs, Austria. As in any town band they play an integral part in the cultural and entertainment life of Lech Zürs - from the regular series of summer outdoor concerts to church festivities and ceremonies, to their annual gala concert, and to our renowned musical festivals. Their repertoire consists mainly of traditional Austrian and Bohemian band music; marches, polkas and waltzes. However, every once in a while contemporary sounds do escape!

The Helmut Fricker Band
Clad in lederhosen and toting an accordion or alpenhorn, Helmut Fricker has entertained visitors at Beaver Creek since the resort opened in 1980, yodeling and cracking jokes. Helmut is an icon in Beaver Creek and we always look forward to the entertainment of the Helmut Fricker Band at Beaver Creek Oktoberfest!
