Here is the perp’s testimony:
‘… the “Polka Police,” a wildly animated duo featuring an accordion playing “cop” and a drummer in a lederhosen getup proved most entertaining. Their suitcase kick drum added extra panache. “Lynyrd Skynyrd on an accordion,” laughed Hunka. “That’s a first.” He had a point, though they were hilariously good.’ Tamera Schlueter, Hastings Tribune, 5/8/2014
‘My polka roots go back to the Six Fat Dutchmen playing on the John Deere Bandwagon on KEYC-TV in Mankato, MN. And, I’ve downloaded Ozzy’s ‘Crazy Train’ – so I know what I am talking about. The Polka Police is the world’s premier polka band covering your favorite music. If you get a chance – go see them! I would travel anywhere to see them!’ – Dr. Phil Harrington, K-LaserUSA, 4/21/2013
‘You might think that playing a suitcase as a kick-drum wouldn’t kick ass…but it does. You might think that AC/DC and the Glenn Miller Orchestra are not kindred spirits…but they are. At least they are in the capable musical hands of the Polka Police. They fuse classic-rock standards with stein-waving German beer hall style polkas.
What a formula: an accordion playin’ stripper cop (that doesn’t actually strip) and a lederhosen-wearing drummer playing a suitcase kick-drum…I think a rubber chicken was also involved somehow. I would never have guessed that this was the combination of sound and insanity to get me on the dance floor for the first time in years!
This duo rocked harder than bands that contain many more members. I have had them play at several events and have them booked for my upcoming event. Their appearance is both quizzical and comical…but they are always entertaining. My event was busted by the Polka Police… busted by a serious polka-groove that is!’ – Troy Muller, Art Director of New Century Art Guild, Kimballton, IA, 11/11/2013
‘Dear Sgt. Squeezebox, Thank you so much for the awesome entertainment for the Tailgate Dinner! You and Lt. Lederhosen were awesome and everyone had som much fun! Thank you for helping with this wonderful outreach for our church and community!’ Denise W. St. Paul Lutheran Church, Treynor, IA
‘We had a most fantastic time partying last night with the Polka Police! Thanks guys for a super high energy show – all of our guests had a fabulous time! We will highly and loudly recommend you for future events. If you’re willing to travel to Minnesota & Wisconsin, my crazy relatives will keep you very busy!’ – Jenni H, Omaha, NE 11/4/2013
‘If you’re looking for unique entertainment you certainly get it with the Polka Police. Yes, they actually play music but the humor around it makes it pure entertainment that you won’t forget.’ – Psychic Suzanna, KFAB Radio, 8-12-2012
‘Just a note to thank you so much for bringing the Polka Police to our party, last Friday night… It was such a hit, with everyone. As Ellen, said, it was her best life experience,for years……We talked about how fun it was, for ever, and will every time we meet again. Special thanks for the Popping tags….what a hoot.’ Sharon Z., Omaha, NE 4/26/13
‘Thanks Jason! You guys were a huge hit and added so much fun to our event.’ Make-A-Wish Foundation, Omaha, NE, 4/8/2013
