This Polka band from Chicago brings Polish push-style polkas to the polka and non-polka fan. They consist of seven musicians playing guitars, bass, drums, percussion, sax, clarinet, trumpets, trombone, keyboards, accordion, and concertina. Most of the members play more than one instrument and have years of on-stage experience.

They are known throughout the field to be on the cutting edge of polka music. They mix polkas with other music styles such as latin music, zydeco, gospel music, dixieland music and rock music. Their efforts have been inspiring other traditional polka bands to be more creative in their approach to new material, musical arrangements and showmanship. This band did not stop at their quest for musical diversity. In 2006, they continued to progress in the vocal area by adding a female vocal trio. These 3 singers bring flavors of motown and soul to the band's sound.

Since 1998, venues such as the Taste of Chicago, Minnesota State Fair, WGN radio, numerous town summer fests, and an array of local clubs have been enjoying the fresh sounds of the band's experience. .

They have released four CDs. The second album was honored with several awards. The third CD was released in 2006. The fourth CD was released in 2009.
