Spring Festival with Bob Kravos and The Boys In The Band

We had two days of excellent music with Bob Kravos and The Boys In The Band. Four piece band did an outstanding job. So much so that on their way out people couldn’t stop bragging about how much fun this weekend was. There were even some other clubs’ members attending and they expressed their interest in hiring this same band for their events.

Band members:

  • Bob Kravos, first accordion and vocals
  • Jack Tankovich, saxophone and vocals
  • Bob Turcola, second accordion
  • Kurt Harfmann, drums

There’s a long list of people I’d like to thank for helping us with this event, including two couples who come to our club only once a year, offered help and actually took care of some of my business when I became occupied with the people coming in – and forgot all about other things that still needed to be done.

Besides the well known Bob Kravos, who was fortunate to learn form the legendary entertainer and his uncle, America’s Polka King – Frankie Yankovic, we also had the following great musicians playing for us: a polka veteran Bob Turcola, who starts glowing in awe every time he plays a waltz; Jack Tankovich, well renown composer and sax player; talented drummer Kurt Harfmann; a rising legend Alex Meixner, who has a reputation to play ‘polkas on crack;’ and a special guest, someone who is widely popular among the Polish community, Hank Guzevich, a 4 time Grammy nominee, leader of the Polka Family, probably the top Polish polka band in the country. He plays sax, clarinet, guitar, accordion and sings.

As mentioned above, a list of people who contributed for this event to happen, is quite long. Instead of mentioning them all, and worrying that I forgot someone, or because I don’t know some of the names, I’ll put together a photo album of this event and make my praise more enjoyable for everyone.
