I just received a wonderful phone call that I have been awarded Lifetime Achievement from the International Polka Association -Polka Hall of Fame. I’m so honored to be included in the class with virtuoso musician/ composer Don Cialkoszewski and the late great concertina maestro, Don Gralak. It’s a true honor to be included in the hall of fame with many of my idols from the American Polka scene. I’m also ecstatic that the band and I have been honored as “Favorite International Style Band” for this year, as well as being awarded “Favorite International Style Album” for Music with My Friends. I am beyond grateful for the support of my fellow musicians, my family, and the fans who enjoy the music!
