I played trumpet with a successful Polish Polka band called the Nordeast 5 in the Minneapolis area for 30 years. My parents did not teach us children Polish although they spoke it fluently (bummer). I visited Poland 2 years ago and sensed the cultural pride that emanated from a beautiful people that appreciate life to it's fullest. I just learned of you and your band this year after viewing u-tube videos. Words cannot express my admiration for your performance in representing everything that is good about Polish people. You play with such passion - you are the greatest! I only wish I could have met you and seen your band in person. When I get down during the day I think about how "happy" you are and it lifts my spirits. God bless you, Julcia and your family.

Comments: I grew up listening to Polish Music every Sunday morning after coming home from Church Mass. Love your sound - I prefer it over that Sturr band from my hometown in N.Y.

Comments: Ahhh, the memories! I grew up in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and have very fond memories of Sacred Heart's Polish picnics. We lived very close to the church and could hear the music of Happy Louie from our house! My dad loved your music. He would tune in a Salem Massachusetts Polka station on the radio every Sunday and turn the volume up! The memory of Mom cooking Sunday dinner and Dad singing along in Polish and trying to get us four daughters to polka dance with him. Thank you for bringing so much happiness not only to our family but to our entire community in Ipswich. How I miss those Polish Picnics!

Comments: Every August I attend an annual, 3-day Polka event at a church in Erie, PA. Bands play all day - and it's great, but it always reminds of the good ol' days when you played in Erie during the 4th of July weekend (that's what prompts me to write). I was a young girl at the time when you performed here and it brings back such good memories. Also, my parents and I traveled to Youngstown, OH during the summer just to see you. Hope all is well with you and your family. God Bless You!
