Born to Polka

A new level of polka fusing German, Slovenian, and Polish American music with jazz, rock, and world music influences. Bavarski was born through the encouragement of my friend, Alex Meixner, at a Hoboken brat haus over big beers and even bigger ideas. My first call was to Eddie Biegaj who is also a New Jersey resident and native Toledian rich with polka history. The additions of Ernie White (vocals and guitar) and Wayne Dunton (drums) meant that the core of our band was finally complete. Bavarski’s mission is to rock an Oktoberfest by performing both traditional and non-traditional music, creating something for everyone to identify with regardless of their age or ethnicity.

One of the greatest joys in my chosen profession is the fact that I love to play ALL forms of music. No particular style is superior to me if played with passion and at the highest level of musicianship possible. Creating music is all about treating whatever the genre is with true integrity, choosing the players that make it work, and putting “it” out there for people to hear and relate to. My vision for “Born To Polka” was to bring together musical ideas that are played in certain polka circles (German, Slovenian, and Polish) and combine them with jazz, rock, and other various influences. It is a collision of completely different worlds which, in some cases, has never been attempted before.   VISIT BAVARSKI WEBSITE HERE!
