Czech and Then Some


Celebrating our 20th Anniversary on January 21, 2017

1997 - 2017

Czech and Then Some is celebrating our 20th Anniversary of playing polkas, waltzes, fun dances, and country music in January 2017. We have had a blast playing at the many festivals, picnics, weddings, anniversaries, and dances that we have played for the past 20 years. Making two trips to Washington D.C.; making numerous bus trips to Nebraska, Iowa, and Wisconsin; two cruises. We have recorded 8 CDs. What started out as a one time job turned into a family band that has turned into a lot of memories together. We have met so many friends along the way. You the fans of polka music have been so gracious to us and have been a big part of our lives. We want to say thank you to all of great people that have attended our events over the past 20 years. 

We are available for festivals, dances, weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, and church picnics. We play predominately Czech polkas and waltzes, but we also have some German and Mexican polkas in our repertoire as well. Check out our website and listen to some of our selections. We have CDs available on the audio page. If you are looking for a polka band for your festival, church picnic, wedding, or anniversary keep Czech and Then Some in mind.
