The S-Bahn Band returns for the 5th straight year to Kirkland Oktoberfest as the headliner and perennial crowd favorite.

Singer and accordionist Richard Tyce founded the S-Bahn Band in Vancouver in the early 90’s. With a diverse and eclectic repertoire, the S-Bahn specializes in Oktoberfests (German) and Malankas (Ukranian). Highlights include the “Fall Crawls” during which the S-Bahn tours the Oktoberfest circuit.
Why the name “S-Bahn”? S-Bahn is the commuter train that connects cities in Germany with their suburbs.
The S-Bahn connects people, it brings people together.
