The August 9 event featured pock and rock gone polka.
Westbury Arts continued its 2018 Summer Arts & Concert Series with the Polka Brothers on Thursday, August 9. The event attracted over 120 attendees to the Piazza Ernesto Strada. It was the seventh in a series of 10 free outdoor concerts to take place in the Village of Westbury this Summer.
The Polka Brothers are a four man band of young polka lovers, out to spread the joy of polka, one wild party at a time. They’re a well-oiled polka machine, boasting a fearless repertoire that includes classic polka favorites, pop and rock gone polka, and unforgettable originals. They love hooking the audience in with lively polka covers of songs they already know, rocking it on a traditional polka they may not, and taking it home with a fun original they’ll be singing for the rest of the evening – at least…
At first listen, the seemingly foreign tone of the music transports listeners to familiar polka homelands; Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and others… You’ve stepped out of your day and taken that trip you’ve always dreamed of. With “The Polka Brothers” guests are singing today’s homeland melodies; R. Kelly, Weezer, Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones etc. So grab a beer, sing along and experience the meaning of the old adage “No one ever leaves a polka party without a smile on their face.”
