Bob Kravos

Nephew of Polka legend Frankie Yankovic, Bobby grew up playing accordion and has appeared on more than 70 recordings, including 16 of his own.

He has earned nine major polka music awards and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004.

The Polka Quads

Bringing an exciting blend of vocals and a style which is truly all their own, the Polka Quads have put together an eclectic arrangement of bouncy polkas, waltzes, Yankovic favorites and Croatian and Slovenian traditionals.  One thing's for sure, when the Polka Quads take the stage, you'll want to get up a dance!

Frank Moravcik 

Known for his ability to perform a wide variety of different styles of polka music and popular dance tunes,  Frank Moravcik has been a recipient of the Musician of the Year Award and his band has received numerous nominations for Band of the Year and Album of the Year.

The Adlers 

The Adlers song list and styles have evolved continually over the years, which has proven a successful foundation for their musical development. While their early days offered mostly traditional German & Austrian polka, The Adlers remain as relevant now as ever, having incorporated a good deal of party music loved by polka people of all ages.

Fritz Scherz

Playing everything from modern-style polka to country to rock and even blues, Fritz’s Polka Band performs an eclectic mix of musical styles!  Not your typical oompa pa band, Fritz is known for breaking the stereotype of what it means to be a polka musician today.

Joseph Weber

Joe began playing professionally with the Louie Unger Edelweiss Band at the age of 11.  After more than 45 years in the industry, Joe is now known for his skill with the accordion, the button box, keyboards, baritone horn, and singing.  Enjoyed at many festivals & Oktoberfests for playing a variety of music, his first love remains his specialty: Austrian and German Polka.
