Fritz's Polka Band

Sunday, August 4 · view days & times
Venue: Wells Fargo Festplatz


Fritz's Polka Band (FPB) was formed in 1978 by lead accordionist, the late Fred Scherz Sr., and his eight-year old son, Fritz, for whom the band was named. Sadly, Fred passed away on November 14, 2009, but FPB has vowed to carry on his legacy! Playing everything from modern-style polka to country to rock and even blues, FPB performs an eclectic mix of musical styles! FPB is NOT an oompa pa band or the stereotypical "polka" band. In fact, FPB is known for breaking the "polka" stereotype. FPB is the first polka band to perform at a Woodstock Festival (Woodstock '99) and has made 19 recordings and performed at B.B. King's Club (2003), The China Club (2006), and The Metropolitan Club (2007). In 2011, FPB had two different songs appear in episodes of the hit cable TV show, 'Breaking Bad'.
