Four of the best polka bands in the nation will be converging on the stage at Johnstown’s Annual Polka Fest today, Saturday, May 30 — Multi-award winners, Dennis Polisky & Maestro’s Men, will start alternating with Cleveland’s legendary party starter, Don Wojtila before Hall of Famer Hank Guzevich’s Polka Family hits the stage alternating with 247 Polka Heaven 2014 Entertainers of the Year– The Alex Meixner Band. (AMB is there on Sunday, May 31, too!) We’re all sure there will be some epic jams too! Next best thing– the festival is free admission and has some of the best ethnic food you’ll find on this side of the Mississippi at very reasonable prices. You can’t ask for much more.
Well that is until The Alex Meixner Band journeys to the other side of the Mississippi next week. Thursday, June 4 is a great party in Waterloo, IL hosted by super fans, Ken and Barbara Leonard before Alex and the boys head to Sugar Creek, MO for the annual Sugar Creek Slavic Festival on Friday & Saturday, June 5 & 6. If you don’t already know how to kolo dance, just hang with the Sugar Creek peeps and in about 45 seconds you will be in the circle partying with everyone. Super great people — a kielbasa eating contest, dance exhibitions, the Alex Meixner Band and the new local band Kolograd will be entertaining– in addition to the best ethnic food on the other side of the Mississippi.
