ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ever wonder what the music of Pink Floyd would sound like polka? The Polka Floyd show is no ordinary tribute band; they perform the music of Pink Floyd, polka style, with all the energy of a high-octane rock band!

The Polka Floyd show is the latest project of native Detroiter and musician Ken Haas who lends his guitar and vocals to this unique band. Haas is a veteran of many bands including The Culture Bandits, The Hoolapoppers, Kids from Krypton and, most recently, the Zimmerman Twins. This project came about unexpectedly when Haas and fellow Toledo musicians, bassist Chris Zielinski and drummer Frank Dramczyk - from the nationally-renowned polka band, Crusade - got together to jam. Messing around with some Pink Floyd tunes, they added a polka twist to the classic rock songs and a new band was born. After recruiting accordion player Eric Hite and keyboardist Penny Haas, the band played their first gig to a sold-out hometown Toledo crowd.

The Polka Floyd show pays tribute to Pink Floyd in their own way, featuring classic material from throughout the band’s history from the early Syd Barrett period to the epic “The Wall”, including “Comfortably Numb” the first song they covered together as a band. They have also performed the seminal “Dark Side of the Moon” album in its entirety.

What started out as a fun band rehearsal has taken on a life of its own. Along with their many headlining performances, the Polka Floyd show has also opened for notable acts including Unknown Hinson and ? & The Mysterians. They were also invited to play music festivals: The Shamybash in Columbus, Detroit Cityfest and the Hamtramck Festival’s “Polka Palooza.” They have since taken the show on the road to enthusiastic audiences from Cleveland to Fargo.

Static Records will release their self-titled debut album that features a seven-song selection from their vast repertoire, including “See Emily Play,” Pink Floyd’s second single.

Here is what others are saying about the Polka Floyd show:
“Polka Floyd plays remarkably good renditions of all your favorite Floyd tunes with a polka twist that’ll have you jaw-dropped in awe at the stellar musicianship while laughing at the pure ridiculousness of it all at the same time.” - Ryan Bunch, Toledo City Paper

"Polka Floyd is one of those rare bands that stand out from all the others. They're fine musicians AND they're different. Combining some "old world instruments" with "new world sounds" isn't easy, but Polka Floyd makes it fun and very entertaining." – Unknown Hinson

“On paper, it sounds like a musical mess: Pink Floyd and polka? But sometimes, good things come from strange combinations.” - Ed Caroll, Independent Collegian

Doesn't Sound Bad.
So, at first you may think "Oh, Polka Floyd, that sounds funny." Well, it is, but it's also rather enjoyable to listen to, even if you don't care that much about polka. They seem to do this pretty well. Me as well as my parents enjoyed this CD.
