PARK CITY POLKA PLAYERS

Traditional Oompah and Gazebo Band

 

Composed of five classically trained musicians, the Park City Polka Players are based off the traditional German and American style Oompah Band. This means we have more in common with a brass band/dixieland band than most polka groups. Our instrumentation is as follows:

1 clarinet

2 trumpets

1 trombone

1 tuba

We are ideally suited for playing on a stage in a beer garden or brewery celebrating Oktoberfest, or in a park gazebo on a hot summer day for a small town festival.

 

What makes us truly unique is the fact that we do not have a singer, a drum set player, or an electric guitar. We are a fully acoustic ensemble.

Our repertoire consists of a wide variety of traditional German polkas, marches, and waltzes. In addition, we are always adding to our books new arrangements of music we think our audiences would enjoy-including popular songs with a polka twist. 

SUPER MARIO BROS POLKA

This is one of our first arrangements for the group created by our clarinet player, Erin Voellinger. This is not only an example of the caliber of her arrangements, but also of the eclectic array of music she has arranged for the Park City Polka Players. You can also find our demo recordings on our YouTube channel.
