They have performed at the Maritime Museum, at many retirement homes, and for several fund raising events. They have played at the “Empty Bowls Santa  Barbara” event, where money is raised  to support the local Food Bank.  They have performed for the Artizan’s Ball -A Night in Gay Paris, a fund raiser for Sarah House. They played with the Christmas Revels, performing at the Lobero Theatre for four shows. The event was called “A Bavarian Christmas” and they were given the name, “Die Biergarten Musikmeisters”. 
In 2017, the Hofbrau Hix (An off shoot of the Dix E Hix) were invited to play for the Oktoberfest at the Morongo Casino.
