About Us

ETO Classic Program:  The European Take-Out Band plays Oktoberfest plus other European based music  and favorite American standards for your listening and dancing pleasure. This includes dances such as the polka, waltz, fox trot, swing, reinlander, county western, rumba, and of course the ever popular Chicken Dance.  We also have easy dances we teach for audience participation.   We are based in Portland, Oregon.

Instrumentation consists of two accordions, bass, and drums.  We also have a vocalist.

“We play music for your happy occasions!”.    This can include Oktoberfests, old time dances, restaurants, retirement homes, special events and parties. We look forward to hearing from you how we can provide entertainment for your special event!

ETO Blast from the Past:  The European Take-Out Band is developing a Blast from the Past Oldies program.  This has hits from the 50’s, including swing numbers, light rock, and other popular dance and listening numbers.   The band can provide a ETO Classic program, a Blast from the Past program, or a combination.  We keep the beat going so you’ll want to dance!
