What our clients have to say...

Polkawagen was exactly what our team was looking for at our 2022 Oktoberfest event! They were flexible, fun, professional, and kind. They went above and beyond; we would gladly recommend them to anyone that was looking for a polka band.

Polkawagen, thank you for performing at our Oktoberfest-themed Appreciation Day 2020 for all of our clients, friends, and neighbors. With the previously booked band canceling on us one week out, you came through and saved the day! You all sounded great, and we will certainly be asking you back to perform again next year.


Thank you so much for being a part of our 2021 Oktoberfest party again this year. We had so many compliments on how great you guys were!

You were the perfect band for my 2019 and 2021 Oktoberfest party! Thank you for playing all of the German songs I requested, especially the tunes not already in your reperetoire. You sounded fantastic!

Benson Oktoberfest Party

Polkawagen was the hit of our neighborhood event! Besides being fun and easy to work with, Bart and Liesa went above and beyond to make our community Oktoberfest a huge success! From their authentic Bavarian outfits to their vast array of instruments, Polkawagen was the perfect way to put a little hop into everyone’s step. Young and old alike loved not just a single performance, but what we hope is the beginning of an annual tradition!

I just wanted to thank you for playing at my Grandmother's 90th Birthdayfest. Even with just a few day's notice, you all were able to put on a excellent show. I have had many compliments, and I would certainly refer your music group to anyone. I appreciated your communication and dependability. You all saved the day!

So happy we booked Polkawagen for our family reunion and Maifest celebration. They got the entire family on their feet with all their fantastic music choices.

Highly recommend!

Family Reunion / Maifest Celebration

Sister Cities of Nashville reached out to Polkawagen to be part of a virtual event in 2020 featuring the culture, food, and fare of Germany. We asked them to perform a few songs for additional entertainment over Zoom and they really rose to the challenge! Not only were they very easy to work with as we designed the program, but their contribution and performance went above and beyond in its warmth and uniqueness. Their performance both visually with traditional Bavarian attire, and educationally, through their knowledge of polka, genuinely added to the ambiance and helped us offer a truly culturally immersive experience. By the end of our event, people were literally dancing in front of their computer screens. The joy and connection participants shared through their music helped to make our event extra special — we can only imagine how fun they would be in person! Sister Cities of Nashville definitely hopes to work with them again in the future!
