The Polka Generations play that old fashion “Chicago” honky style music for you.

The band began its journey in the winter of 2009. After having many different bands over the years; Bernie Gorak II finally succeeded in putting the right combination of musicians together to form what is now Polka Generations.

The Polka Generations feature “3” Generations of the Gorak Family.

  • Bernie Gorak III – (Grandson) Concertina
