Polka still strong in Kewaunee County

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.
