The Chardon Polka Band’s range of style is as equally eccentric as its members. The band plays traditional polkas reminiscent of The Lawrence Welk Show, a style that has endeared them to traditional polka fans, but sometimes morphs into punk-rock renditions of the same songs, modified to bring in a younger audience. They throw in comedic renditions of oddball favorites, bizarre audience participation songs, and even polka-rock covers of anything from Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” to Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” to Lady Ga Ga’s “Bad Romance”! The Chardon Polka Band also has an ever-growing library of original tunes, many of which are featured on their popular studio albums.
Since the release of Polka Round The Christmas Tree in 2015, fans have petitioned the band for another helping of holiday fun! They perform a zany and heartfelt show featuring loads of polka fun! You’ll hear a few holiday classics set to a polka beat, a couple of wild originals, and a few surprises along the way!
