Tell us about yourself
We began our story as
Oma and the Oompahs,
with Pearly Sowell at the head as Oma accompanied by the Oompahs,
her son David Smith on the drums
and friend Bobby Owens on the tuba.
For forty years, Oma and the Oompahs
entertained live audiences across Texas,
Oklahoma, and Louisiana
and nationally and internationally via
radio and television cable channels.
Recently retired at 92, Oma passed on the baton to her son, David. The Oompahs have grown into a consortium of professional musicians playing together as The Oompahs.
