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.
