We are a Polka Band and also big Band with jazz tunes from the 40s, s 50s, and 60s.
We play all kinds of party's, celebrations and beer fest, Oktober fests and Fasching party's as well as weddings and dances.
We have been playing for over 30 years and many members of the band are still with us!!
We play Jazz and Authentic German Polkas and beer songs.
We had an Octoberfest party at my work and we hired the Die Polka Schlingels for the entertainment. They did an excellent job! They played a lot of songs we were familiar with and gave some history on the ones we weren't. And I got to say I loved the special hats one player had. He had a different hat depending on the song they where playing. Lots of fun. If you have a need for a polka band you got to hire the Die Polka Schlingels.
