There's nothing wrong with oom-pah if you enjoy playing it. However, I personally don't like playing it at all. Perhaps as I mature more I won't really care, but I'm one of those people you were talking about that gets bored if there isn't something remotely challenging going on in my part. However, marches and polkas are without a doubt "musically viable" in my opinion. I have found that learning to play jazz has greatly helped me vent my frustrations with boring tuba parts.
