WSKG’s locally produced Let’s Polka welcomes back The Polka Brothers. These four “brothers” (actually good friends who first started playing music together in college) from New York City bring their unique brand of polka music to the stage. The live studio audience was enthralled with this group’s charm, high quality musicianship and a very unique setlist that has something for every polka fan. Ranging from classic polka instrumentals to original Polka Brothers compositions to off the wall covers (especially for Star Wars and Mario Brothers fans), this half hour will be sure to get your hands a-clapping! Bill Flynn hosts and conducts an interview with the brothers where they discuss what it is like to play polka music in New York City.
