Brave Combo

World's only Nuclear Polka band returning to Westfest for two shows!

New for 2019

Bolzen Beer Band

From the heartland of America, Bolzen Beer Band takes the traditional German sound and injects pure adrenaline to create insane punk polka that is taking the world over!  

More about their polka style:

  — "Bolzen Beer Band gets it! These lads, from the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, understand the power of polka and wield that power in their own unique, and pretty damn spectacular, way. Check them out ASAP and don't be surprised if you aren't quite sure what it is you're witnessing. I guarantee you won't be able to turn away and you'll find yourself digging the experience, if not dancing and screaming at the same time. These guys are not lazy and laid-back. But they are, magically, new and old, at the same time. Let's "kick-out-the-jams" polka!" -Grammy Award-winning Carl Finch, Brave Combo
