Despite the possible demise of the Wisconsin Polka Hall of Fame, polka music is alive and well in Kewaunee County. According to the USA Today, a lack of interest and losing original members to old age has brought on a decline to the polka organization. A local group called the Happy Hoppers Dance Club features a polka band one Sunday a month at the Rendezvous of Luxemburg. Kelly Froelich, owner of the Rendezvous, explains why polka music still attracts big turnouts at his upstairs dance hall.
Froehlich says the four-hour event features different polka bands every month. The next Happy Hoppers Dance Club polka music show at the Rendezvous will be on Sunday, January 19.
