July 14 Chardon Polka Band
The Chardon Polka Band is not your average polka band. They are a group that brings new life and energy to this traditional music. While the group has an extensive catalogue of traditional polkas, they are not afraid to bring their own tunes into the mix along with polka-pop covers of artists like Justin Bieber and Lady Ga Ga. From performing at an NFL game to headlining for some of the largest Oktoberfests in the nation to opening for the prestigious Cleveland Orchestra; the band loves pleasing crowds anywhere and everywhere.
The same songs we listened to at the drive-in or on the beach – the music that touched our emotions and brought us closer together – the music that made us feel happy or guided us through our lives. Spend an evening with the Legends and experience a musical getaway of all your favorite feel good oldies performed just right by these personable, talented and professional performers! You'll feel great!
