** The Hills are ALIVE with the sound of SMITTY'S POLKA BAND ** Bringing the authentic ROCKIN MUNICH experience to your beer tent, stage or backyard extravaganza ** Always at the HOTTEST private Oktoberfests--so HOT we've had to sign NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS in 2016!

As seen and danced to on the legendary Circle Line Oktoberfest Cruise to Bear Mountain ** Multi-lingual lead vocalist sings in German, gutter-Dutch, Spanglish, and some pretty decent Polish in front of a band of miscreants who mix accordions, trumpets, trombones, tubas, guitars and super tight drums. ** Smitty's Polka Band --since 1967-- groovin' your party's crowd with Oktoberfest Beer Music mixed with a Pop and Rock variety set that keeps the crowd smilin' and rockin' all night long!

** Smitty's Polka Band has had the pleasure of being featured multiple times on Circle Line's Oktoberfest Cruise to Bear Mountain; as well as at the headquarters of Unilever and Mastercard. In 2014, Smitty's performed the EIN PROSIT at the Keg Tapping & Oktoberfest Kick Off party for Paulaner NYC; in 2013 the band rocked Mercedes Benz USA's Oktoberfest in New Jersey.

Make your Oktoberfest the memorable experience that it deserves! Book Smitty's Polka Band and continue in a tradition of the finest polka entertainment since 1967.

Now performing in the Greater NYC Metropolitan area, this Quartet picks up where their forefathers have left off...PROST!

OKTOBERFEST beer celebrations our specialty all year round.

Brief History: Through a mix of fate and months of careful music business analysis, the Smitty's franchise was reborn after over 40 years hiatus at a chance meeting in a Midtown rehearsal studio. A mix of trumpets, trombones, tubas, accordion, electric guitar and drums sparked the ignition of what will one day be called the hottest polka machine to ever be assembled.

The resultant Polka Band are literally and figuratively taking the Polka genre BOLDLY into the 21st century, while continuing a tradition of fine beer music started almost 50 years ago in 1967 at Smitty's Tavern in Elgin, Illinois.

** The group includes the current Gigmasters # 1 Accordion Player in the US, Papa Bavarian.

In and around NYC, the East Coast and available for WORLDWIDE travel!

** We're already booking into the 2016 Oktoberfest season and many of our September through mid-October dates are in high demand. Please book and reserve us early, it's never too early to plan your Oktoberfest Bash, so make it complete with Smitty's Polka Band! **

Josh and the band blew the roof off of our Austrian Harvest party. They played a great mix of traditional Bavarian music but also a number of outstanding "domestic" songs in response to our specific requests, including a "Ring of Fire" that would have made Johnny Cash shout "sooey". This band is talented, friendly, responsible and so easy to work with. We (and our 85 or so guests) would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone! PROST!!!
