Joe Stanky of Joe Stanky & the Cadets

Wednesday, August 7 · view days & times
Venue: Wells Fargo Festplatz


For over 35 years Joe Stanky & the Cadets have been performing for audiences up and down the eastern seaboard and from Texas to Michigan. Although Joe Stanky started with the classical violin, his passion drew him to the music he heard all his life - Polkas. In addition to traditional polkas, their repertoire also includes country and rock and roll, averaging 75 to 100 gigs a year. Their lively music has given birth to 6 CD's featuring originals and cover songs. One of their original songs, "Polka Dancer", was featured on a Grammy-winning recording by Brave Combo. In addition, the new indie film by Jason Sherry entitled, Cubes includes the music of Joe Stanky & the Cadets. Perhaps their most famous tune is, "The Dancing Mouse," which has inspired thousands of fans to get up and dance. Their albums include, Ridin' High, The Switch is On, Heart Moving Melodies, Fightin' Side, Band for Hire, and their most recent, Sing Me Back Home. A new project is due soon.
