The Polkaholics at 6 Corners BBQ Fest "They said it couldn't be done" Polka on guitars!
http://chicagopolkaholics.com/ Jolly James Wallace on bass and vocals, Dandy Don Hedeker on guitar and vocals, and Stylin' Steve Glover on drums and vocals
The Polkaholics featured on Centerstage Chicago http://www.centerstagechicago.com/mus... ~ The band puts the oomph back in oom-pah and a punk edge on polka. Guitarist 'Dandy Don' Hedeker formed the Polkaholics in '97 by fusing his two main influences: the polka standards of Windy City polka king Lil' Wally and the '70s punk explosion of late guitar god Johnny Thunders (of New York Dolls). What began as a crash-course cover of the traditional 'Beer Barrel Polka' grew into a deep respect for Windy City polka forerunners like The Pala Brothers, The Naturals and Eddie Zima. Punk and polka was an unlikely mixture, but Dandy Don made it work ~
