Polkas and Waltzes from around the world! - Chicago, IL
From the beer halls of Münich to the taverns of Chicago, Die Kellerknaben has its roots deep in the heart of polka. Die Kellerknaben plays music that makes you want to dance! Not just a fad, the polka is part of the American heritage. The band will delight you with Oktoberfest favorites and classics from the international landscape. You’ll feel right at home singing along with the hits. No other style of music gives people so much joy, cheerfulness, and hilarity. We need this to brighten our daily lives!
The group has performed all over the midwest, including venues such as Miskatonic Brewing, Cedarburg Cultural Center, Goldfinger Brewing, Phyllis' Musical Inn, Obscurity Brewing, Westmont Brat House, Old Elburn Hall, The Town Of Cicero, and the Westmont Lions Club Oktoberfest.
