The group has performed in 17 different states including
Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana,
Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas,
Wisconsin, & Wyoming. Also playing on a Cruise Ship in the Western Caribbean.
They perform many dances in Omaha and surrounding areas, but don't let that
fool you into thinking they don't like to travel. To travel with the band
to different states for festivals and such have always been great adventures
for them. Barry also sponsors tours to other states when possible.
Barry started taking lessons on accordion when he was 10
years old. In 1980, at 17 years old he dropped the lessons and started
playing on an 8-piece dance band and played as a regular until 1990 when
he started his own band. On September 8, 2013, Barry was inducted into the
"Sokol Omaha Polka Hall of Fame."
Barry has always been able to fill out the band with talented
musicians on bass horn, drums and other instrumentation. With the band being
family oriented from the start, Barry watched his son play drums on the laps
of many drummers since the age of two. The dream of playing drums became
reality when Barry's son Chad became the full time drummer in the spring of
2003. He felt the beat at dances before he was born and now carries an excellent
beat on stage for the band.
The band performs anywhere, including dances for festivals, Oktoberfest,
weddings, anniversaries, house parties and anything the mind dreams of. Take some of our
music home with you. We have five CDs & one DVD to choose from.
We are looking forward to playing for your special occasion.
