"Polkawagen, thank you so much for being the feature German band for our Cullman Oktoberfest 2020 & 2021 festivals. You guys are awesome!" — Cullman Oktoberfest (Cullman, Alabama)
"Sister Cities of Nashville reached out to Polkawagen to be part of a virtual event in 2020 featuring the culture, food, and fare of Germany. We asked them to perform a few songs for additional entertainment over Zoom and they really rose to the challenge! Not only were they very easy to work with as we designed the program, but their contribution and performance went above and beyond in its warmth and uniqueness. Their performance both visually with traditional Bavarian attire, and educationally, through their knowledge of polka, genuinely added to the ambiance and helped us offer a truly culturally immersive experience. By the end of our event, people were literally dancing in front of their computer screens. The joy and connection participants shared through their music helped to make our event extra special — we can only imagine how fun they would be in person! Sister Cities of Nashville definitely hopes to work with them again in the future!" — Sarah Lingo, Executive Director of Sister Cities of Nashville
"Polkawagen, thank you for performing at our Oktoberfest-themed Appreciation Day 2020 for all of our clients, friends, and neighbors.
