WSKG Arts is proud to welcome Tony Blazonczyk and his New Phaze band back to the Let’s Polka stage for another half hour of toe-tapping fun! Our studio audience and dancers were captivated by their energy and good natured charm which shines through during this episode.
Tony Blazonczyk’s New Phaze have recorded 6 CD’s on the New Phaze label and received Best Single of the Year in 2012 by The International Polka Association for the song “For The Love of the Music”. That song kicks off an eclectic set that also includes the “Girls, Girls, Girls Polka” and the “My Heart Waltz”. Tony is joined on-stage by a crack set of polka music veterans including John ‘Fu’ Furmaniak (accordion), Tim Jagodzinski (concertina), Melvin Rzeszutko (drums), CJ Lackowski (trumpet & vocals), and Dan Levdanski (trumpet).
