Fritz's Polka Band to perform at Swiss Picnic in Boonville

July 26, 2010 (Verona NY) Jagermeister-sponsored, Fritz's Polka Band (FPB) from Verona, NY, will perform again at the Swiss Picnic, held at Stysh's Brown Barn Campground (Moose River Road) in Boonville, NY on Sunday, August 1st. FPB will perform from 1 to 5pm.

"We're looking forward to performing again for the Swiss Picnic,” said Fritz Scherz, band leader of Fritz's Polka Band. "FPB Fan Club Member, Marian Carpenter and her family have been hosting this event for over 20 years, and it's always a great event for all ages. Marian was even recognized a few years ago by New York State Senator, Joe Griffo, as he credited her with keeping this great community tradition going strong. The guys in FPB encourage people of all ages to attend."

Fritz's Polka Band has been performing for over 31 years, and made history in 1999, when they became the first polka band to perform at a Woodstock Festival in Rome, NY. On September 15, 2007, FPB made history again by becoming the first polka band to perform at the Metropolitan Club in New York City. FPB has now made 17 recordings. FPB even appears on "The Manchurian Candidate" DVD which was released in July 2004.
FPB previously won a Just Plain Folks Music Award in the Best Polka Song category for Bialczak’s Polka on November 4, 2008. In November 2008, FPB won their first Upper State Independent (USI) Award in Syracuse, NY, in the International Category. In June 2009, Fritz’s Polka Band won their first ever Syracuse Area Music Award (SAMMY) in the Best Recording: Other Styles category for their Reflections recording. In early November 2009, FPB won their second USI Award in Syracuse, NY, in the International Category.
