The Chardon Polka Band has made a name for itself being the “new” face of polka and putting a new twist on this traditional music. The group is known for being one of the youngest, most energetic, and most experimental acts in their field. Still, The Chardon Polka Band goes to great lengths to please polka fans of all ages…. including polka fans of yester-year. The band is dedicated to seeing this music live on. The idea that these “youngsters” care so much about this old time music delights seniors around the country. Seniors love to see and interact with the band as they play old polka favorites, big band tunes, gospel, and folk. The Chardon Polka Band performs regular at nursing homes, senior centers, and assisted living facilities.
The typical Chardon Polka Band performance is made up of variety, humor, and audience participation. The band channels the same energy and enjoyment, that they employ on stage at some of the largest Oktoberfests around the country, into their “senior entertainment” programs. The Chardon Polka Band members’ unique personalities are easy to spot and endear themselves to audiences of all ages.
“The Chardon Polka band performed at Park Vista this past May. To say they were amazing is an understatement! The room was packed with residents and the energy level in the room was off the charts! Professional, such amazing musical talent and just down right fun, is how I would describe the band! We can’t wait for the next performance!”
