Polka Dan’s Beetbox Band – Music VIDEO Mashup


EASTHAM – Kids love polka music. It was the first thing we noticed when we saw the fun, high energy Polka Dan’s Beetbox Band at the Eastham Windmill Festival on Saturday.

Polka Dan's Beetbox Band

Kids love polka music.

We shot videos of three songs and this is a mashup of the “Pennsylvania Polka,” by Frankie Yankovic, “Hoop Dee Doo Polka” also by Yankovic, and in the middle we put Dick Dale’s “Misiriou,” which began when Polka Dan Blajda asked, “Any surfers out there?”

Polka surf music.

It was pretty cool, and did we mention that the kids loved it. One of our original full song videos had a minute or more of little feet rolling by the camera from girls doing cartwheels in front of the stage. The band later thanked the energetic dancers.

The band itself includes Polka Dan Bladja, the lead singer and fiddle player, Robin Johnson on piano, Greg Johnson on bass, Clayton March on clarinet, and David Silver on drums. They are a tight band, and Polka Dan is a one-of-a-kind charismatic performer.

Plus, everyone loves polka music.
