Polka Generations began its journey in the winter of 2009. After having many different bands over the years; Bernie Gorak II finally succeded in putting the right combination of musicians together to form what is now Polka Generations. The Polka Generations feature "3" Generations of the Gorak Family playing in this band (Father-drums, Son-bass & Grandson-concertina), matched with the outstanding vocals & clarinet/sax playing of Mr. John Jaworski & Mr. Marty Dzik on trumpet & vocals. Take a few moments to browse our site and check the schedule to see when we will be in your area. Don't forget to check out our web store for our recordings and other fine products.
Hope to see you out in "polkaland" in the very near future!!
