WSKG Arts is proud to welcome Polka Hall-of-Famer Dennis Polisky and his Maestro’s Men back to the Let’s Polka stage for another half hour of toe-tapping fun. Dennis and the band wowed our studio audience with an eclectic mix of songs that drew upon their over twenty years of playing together. Dennis was joined on-stage by fellow Polka Hall-of-Famer Jackie Libera (keyboard and vocals), Rich Bernier (accordion and vocals), Andrew Galarneau (trumpet), Jim Motyka (trumpet) and Ken Yash (drums). The chemistry this band has together is extraordinary and is highlighted on tunes such as “Holiday in Poland”, “Before I Met You” and “Sax on the Beach” (in which Dennis plays the saxophone with extreme ferocity). Bill Flynn hosts and interviews Dennis after the recording to discuss his long and successful polka career.
