PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE AT THE PARADISE TIKI HUT IN SOUTH CAPE CORAL IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH 2020. WE ARE NOT AT THE JUNKANOO ALTHOUGH THIS IS WHERE WE STARTED OUR FLORIDA MUSIC JOURNEY.
FLORIDA SNOWBIRD POLKA BAND
We want to thank all the wonderful people who have come to the Junkanoo Beach Bar in Fort Myers Beach for the five years from 2010 to 2015. Polka Tuesdays in February and March began in 2010 when Charlie and Mary Lou wanted to have a place to play polka music while on vacation in Florida. We called on our polka family and friends to join us, and what started out with very humble beginnings as a jam session grew by leaps and bounds every year. We were blessed to have some of the legends of polka music come to play with us at the Junkanoo when they were on vacation in Florida: Andy Hocevar, Hank & Mary Ann Haller, Eddie Rodick, Kim Skovenski, Big Daddy Lackowski, Joe Fedorchak, Frank Moravcik, Frank Svet, Bob Turcola, Dan Peters, and Tony Klepec - just to name a few. What a fantastic five years!
In late 2014 our original bass player and one of our best supporters for four years, Fran Gariepy, passed away. May he rest in peace.
Entertainment will be provided by the Florida Snowbird Polka Band and various musicians will entertain during intermission.
Polka Tuesdays will continue in February and March 2020 - every Tuesday from 2PM to 5PM - at the Paradise Tiki Hut Bar and Grill, 1502 Miramar Street (at Del Prado Blvd.) in Cape Coral, Florida. It's a great venue with good food and cold beer.
