What Say You? Does anybody like it, if so will you admit it?:laugh:
Urkle loves it.....
Its fun on the dance floor with a beer & kielbasa @ the VFW on Friday Night
I grew up in a polka culture. My Germanic ancestors (most 1st generation imagrants to the USA) brought their love of the music to the States with them.
I don't hear it often anymore, unless I attend a family wedding in Wisconsin.
Go to Eastern Pennsylvania....most polka bands in the USA
I'll stack Wisconsin up against Pennsylvania any day... :thumbs:
After the NFL playoffs tomorrow you may have to:laugh:
Oomp, paa, paa. Omp, paa, paa! :thumbs:
If it doesn't have an accorian is it worth listening to?
On the hand what kind of polka do you like?
Czech,Bavarian, Polish, Slovenian, or Mexican?
Polka as in "Thunder and Lightning Polka", "Tritch-Tratch Polka" and so on by Strauss? If so, yes I like it, but I haven't voted in case "polka" has a different (or additional) meaning in the USA.
I've listened and danced to this band for almost all of their 50+ years!
These guys as well:
Mexican....LOL What kind of sausage do they serve & what type of beer?
PS: your forgetting Slovak & Hungarian
Yes, I like it. My dad loved it and I grew up with it.
Ironically, though, I didn't learn to love it until I moved to Texas. Between the traditional German and Mexican polka music, it's hard to get away from down there.
We live in an area with a very large German and Polish population, so you can find it everywhere here. We haven't been in a while, but there are always dances around that feature polka.
I don't watch the Big Joe Show very often, just because I don't like to be glued to a screen for an hour, but sometimes if it's on, I'll turn the sound up while I'm working.
Same with the Jimmy Sturr Show.
I know next to nothing about Polka Music. I just think of John Candy (& Eugene Levy) from :The Last Polka. Funny stuff. John Candy was really,really funny in all his movies.
I love everything about it. We have a very big Polish & later Ukranian population in my town & so we would go to the lake on Friday night & dance. I guess I love to dance & socialize. Then we had a German Hoff Brau house in the neighboring town & my Dad (in-law) is from Stutgartt in Germany. The owner was operatic & worked part time in NYC & brought in acts & operatic singers. Dad & I loved it & the food was always great! both places are closed now but boy it was a great time.:love2:
My wife just told me that when she goes down to Tampa each October to visit my in-laws that Dad takes her to the biggest Octoberfest/Polka Fest she has ever been to. Guess Im getting old that Im seriously considering the move.
When the music starts to play folks begin to dance. Hello! I told you it would lead to dancing and we all know what dancing leads to..... :tongue3:
Fulfilling God's mandate "to be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth?" :laugh:
Yes, I like polka music, along with homemade pretzels and krout. My dad's grandparents were German immigrants.
There is a great German restaurant in Columbus, Ohio and the owners play polka live while you dine. It's great. We visited there twice while on vacation in the area.
eh, it is fun sometimes.
Roll out the barrel. We'll have a barrel of fun.
