Jimmy Sturr and His Orchestra
with Special Guest Guitarist Chris Caffery of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra

When it comes to polka party music, there's one band sets the standard for fun. Eighteen-time Grammy Winner Jimmy Sturr and His Orchestra! Jimmy and his band constantly attract crowds of screaming, adoring fans wherever their travels take them. Their tremendous popularity has resulted not only in an impressive number of Grammy Awards, but also being voted "The #1 Polka Band in the country."

The band has an extensive road schedule each year, including several international trips annually. They have played seven sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall, four sold-out shows at Lincoln Center, and a sold-out show at The Palace of Culture in Warsaw, Poland, where the band received seven standing ovations.

Joining Jimmy and his orchestra will be guitarist Chris Caffery, of the former band Savatage and currently with the band that makes some of the hottest Christmas music around, Trans-Siberian Orchestra.


DSB Die Schlauberger 
die Schlauberger (dSb) is musical proof that a band can please just about everyone. dSb is a powerhouse of musical expertise whose very mission is "Keeping the Traditionalists on their Feet and the New Generation Interested."  Performing festival standards to rock-and-roll-meets-alpine-power, they expend enough energy to light up not only the crowd, but the fairgrounds, too.  From the moment dSb steps on stage until they have wrung the final note from their last song, the band engages everyone within earshot to "expect the unexpected, then join in the fun."
