More

The Piatkowski Brothers return to the Let’s Polka stage for another half hour of toe-tapping fun. The members of this band (Al Piatkowski-accordion, Rob Piatkowski-trumpet, Mark Trzepacz-bass guitar, and Jason Flynn-drums) have been playing together for close to thirty years and the studio audience enjoyed every minute of their performance. This set is highlighted by the debut of a new band member in saxophonist Zachary Piatkowski, who joins his father on-stage for the first time ever. Binghamton polka legend Bill Flynn hosts and conducts an interview with Al Piatkowski, where he discusses sharing the stage with his son.

“Showtime Polka”
“Yes Sir, She’s My Baby Polka”
