Album Notes
They said it couldn’t be done, but since 1997 The Polkaholics have been mixing doses of punk rock and polka in a high-speed blender, creating a souped-up sound that fuses the beergarden with the mosh pit. As noted in the Chicago Sun-Times, “The Polkaholics wreak havoc to both traditional polka and rock music!” As evidence of their ability to break down musical barriers, The Polkaholics have performed in some of the most prestigious Chicago music venues including the Metro, House of Blues, the Vic, the Chicago Symphony Center, the Chicago Cultural Center, and of course the Baby Doll Polka Club. And they have even been featured internationally on the incredible “American Polka” CD recently released on the Trikont label out of Munich Germany. With founder Dandy Don Hedeker on guitar and vocals, Jolly James Wallace on bass and vocals, and Action Jackson Wilson on drums and vocals, The Polkaholics use a power rock trio format to put the umph into the oompah-POW, blasting polka screaming into the 21st century.

Funny jolly stuff
This is all about having fun, and fun you will have. Good times, light heartedness, a strong beat, and a thirst for fun and beer are what it's about. Hearing this CD raises my mood. Guitarist Don performs many cool guitar licks, everybody plays together and stays on beat. I particularly like "Baby Doll" and "Kishka." After I heard the other songs "Polkaholics Theme" grew on me. Among their CDs I think the songs on this one show the greatest variety.
