Fritz’s Polka Band returns to Let’s Polka for another half hour of fun and excitement. Fritz has been playing in the band since he was only 8 years old and his showmanship is second to none. The group has such a strong following that an entire busload of fans made the trip from Verona, New York to the WSKG Studios to take in the performance. Fritz is backed by a strong group of musicians including Frank Nelson and Tom Campbell on electric guitar and vocals, Gabe Vaccaro on bass and vocals and Mike Faraino on drums. Highlights of this set include, ‘Chime Bells’ and ‘Stretch It Out’. Bill Flynn hosts and talks to Fritz about the original tunes that he wrote for the group.
“Stretch It Out”
“Chicken Wing Breakdown”
