First of all, thank you so much for for your interest in our band, we certainly appreciate it.
So, what are you looking for?  A band for your church picnic?
Dance club, maybe?  Oktoberfest?
We've got you covered.

Czech Polka Band/Dance Clubs

If you are looking for a polka band for your picnic, or a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon
dance, we can give you just what you need.  Check out our song list below, we're adding "new"
songs all the time.  One of the main things we pride ourselves on, and that we've gotten
tons of compliments about, is that we sound and feel just like the "old bands".  
We don't play too loud, we don't play too "busy", if you are looking to dance
we play just the right tempo.  I've been doing this since 1983, I can definitely
gauge a crowd and tell exactly what they want.  
As you can see from below, we specialize in Czech polkas and waltzes, we also do
old, classic Country & Western/Western Swing, as much or as little as you want.


So, you need an "oompah" band for your Oktoberfest?
We can do that.
I'll tell you right up front, no, we don't dress up in silly costumes,
no lederhosen or yodeling hats with feathers in them.
What we do is give you fun, high-energy music, that people can dance to or just
have a good time while they swing their beer steins back and forth.
Even though we're a Czech band, we do plenty of German numbers, and unlike lots of bands,
we actually sing in German!  I personally am Czech, but I respect the German
music tradition, and if I'm going to play German songs, I'm going to do them
as authentically as possible.  Check out our song list below, those are just some of the
German/bierhalle "fun" tunes we do, we also throw in some dance stuff because there
are always people that want to do a two-step or something like that, and
we'll mix some Czech numbers in as well, but the way we play them,
they all fit right in.  We've done Oktoberfests in Fredericksburg,
Zelick's in San Marcos. Bluebonnet Beer Co. in Round Rock, Banger's Sausage House,
Gingerman Pub, Scholz Garten in Austin, private parties, even up in Snowbird ski resort
in Salt Lake City!  We have to turn down people every year, so the sooner you contact us,
the more likely we're available.
