About
The Polka Brothers are a one of a kind musical experience that will not only drive your party or event, but keep others talking about it for years to come. At first glance they're a well-oiled polka machine, boasting a fearless repertoire that includes polka favorites, pop and rock gone polka, and unforgettable originals. It's all incredibly fun. They love hooking the audience in with lively polka covers of songs they already know, rocking it on a traditional polka they may not, and taking it home with a fun original they'll be singing for the rest of the evening - at least.

The charm of "The Polka Brothers" works in a few ways. At first listen, the music transports guests to familiar polka homelands. Simply the tone of the band brings the listener to Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and others… You've stepped out of your day and taken that trip you've always dreamed of.

A party may start with the location, but it ends with the experience. The Polka Brothers are able to take the rich European tradition of beer hall singing, and connect it to the 21st century. It's as if guests are actually part of that party they remember they're grandparents telling them about from the old country; those legendary evenings where soon to be immigrants danced on the tables while singing their homeland melodies. With "The Polka Brothers" guests are singing today's homeland melodies; Aerosmith, Weezer, Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones etc. Your party will BECOME the actual parties of legend, the ones that one day you may be tell your grandchildren about. So grab a beer, sing along and experience the meaning of the old adage "No one ever leaves a polka party without a smile on their face."

And don't just take it from us...

The Polka Brothers were fantastic!! They were accomodating, talented, funny and definitely kept the party going. I realize that their biggest draw is obviously the Oktoberfest season, but I would go out on limb and tell you that these guys are great for any event anytime of the year!! We had a great time getting to know them, dancing, raising our glass multiple times in the spirit of the season and are looking forward to booking them again next year.

The Polka Brothers were perfect for our party. They were prompt, friendly, and extremely entertaining. I also have to say how nice they were to our two young sons who insisted on banging on a glockenspiel for a few minutes while they were playing. Overall, these guys are talented and FUN! I would highly recommend them.

I can't say enough great things about The Polka Brothers. I hired them for my office Oktoberfest event, and everything about them from start to finish was excellent. Including, of course, the performance, which his lively and fun and appeals especially to younger people (regardless of previous interest in Oktoberfest) because they play awesome adaptations of popular tunes that everyone knows, from the 80s up until current music. Hire these guys, you'll be so glad you did!

First time ever getting a live bad to perform at our annual Okotberfest in our home. SO I was most excited about traditional German music played by these youthful and talented gentlemen. Just wanted that authentic, spirited feel for the party. And they were great! But when they turned over to pop/rock- the crowd was LOVING it! So many folks asked where I found them, for their cards and spent the night listening and singing along. These boys can sing! So talented, so fun and can't thank them enough for making our party a huge success.
