TALENT PROFILE

The Polkaholics

Traditional polka and polka-type songs played with non-traditional instruments (drums, bass, and guitar). A new generation of Polka music. It’s fast, furious, and fun. The Polkaholics have electrified polka and made it rock!

The band puts the oomph back in oom-pah and a punk edge on polka. What began as a crash-course cover of the traditional ‘Beer Barrel Polka’ grew into a deep respect for Windy City polka forerunners like The Pala Brothers, The Naturals and Eddie Zima. Punk and polka was an unlikely mixture, but Dandy Don made it work — and still does with current members drummer Reckless Rusty and bassist Blitz Linster. Today, the trio polkas their way into clubs all over the city, and if you ever catch a show, expect proof that the fusion worked: The entire crowd — young and old, polkameisters and punkers — bobs with a smile.
