Join the fun at the Copper City Connection Concert Series! The third concert series will feature Verona's own, Fritz's Polka Band . Fritz's Polka Band (FPB) was formed in 1978 by lead accordionist, the late Fred Scherz Sr., and his eight-year old son, Fritz, for whom the band was named. Playing everything from modern-style polka to country to rock and even blues, FPB performs an eclectic mix of musical styles! Fritz's Polka Band is NOT an oompa pa band or the stereotypical "polka" band. In fact, FPB is known for breaking the stereotype regarding "polka" music. FPB is the first polka band to perform at a Woodstock Festival (Woodstock '99)! On October 7, 2010, FPB was inducted into the Syracuse Area Music Hall of Fame! Fritz's Polka Band has made 18 recordings, which have achieved international airplay.

This event is FREE!

Hotdogs, popcorn, fried dough. french fries, soda, water and additional snacks will be available for purchase from the Center.

Come dance and sing along with the community and Fritz's Polka Band!
