Ftitz's Polka Band nominated for award

Fritz's Polka Band has been nominated for an Upper State Independent Award in the International category. The award show will take place November 6 at a venue that will be announced shortly. The Upper State Independent Awards acknowledge independent musicians from all genres and backgrounds.

“We were excited to win an Upper State Independent Award the last two years in the International Category, and are thrilled to get nominated again this year," said Fritz Scherz in a press release. "Last year’s win was extra special, as it occurred one week before my Dad (Fred Scherz Sr.) passed away. I remember seeing how happy he was when Mike (FPB drummer) and I got back to his house after the award show and told him. We're very appreciative of being nominated, and want to thank our great fans, djs, music critics, the media for supporting us over the years, and of course, our great sponsor, Jagermeister. Thank you very much!"
