Slovenian button box polka concert featuring Patty C & the Guys
Please note, this event has expired.
For the opening concert of its 2018-2019 season, Standing Rock Cultural Arts’ “Around the World” Music Series presents the award-winning Patty C & the Guys, which performs button box polka music from the Slovenian and Cleveland traditions.
Singing in English and Slovenian, veteran musicians Patty Candela and Joe Strukel (with drummer Paul “Pops” Magooch) perform traditional and Cleveland-style polkas, waltzes, and slow songs using both button box and piano accordions. Formed in 2014, the band has attracted a devoted following and been named Button Box Band of the Year by the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame in 2014, 2015, and 2017. Get ready for a toe-tapping evening, because polka music is happy music!
