    Nicholas Heinz with his 23lb Turkey

    Nicholas Heinz and his dad(Jeff the polka King) and Uncle Norbert Trzebiatowski went Turkey hunting on Saturday April 10th for the youth hunt. With very little success in the morning, we went to aq spot we spotted some turkeys later in the morning. We set up by 4:00 and around 4:15, this nice bird came past our blind and the rest is shown in the picture. Nicholas shot this 23 lb, 10 inch bearded tom at about 50 yards. You couldn't ask for a better finish for the youth turkey hunt. Congrats Nicholas!!

    The weekend of February 12th throught the 14th I had the pleasure of playing with Ted Lange and Mollie Busta, Squeezebox, in Phoenix, Laveen and Mesa Arizona. It was great to see so many familiar faces down there and we were also accompanied by Robbie Piatkowski friend extrodinaire. I can't say enought about the great people we were with and met. Arizona is truly another POLKA CAPITAL.

  • Naperville Polka Fest

    Posted by Jeff Heinz

    Last weekend, Neal Zunker and the Music Connection played at the Illinois State Polka Fest along side Eric Noltkamper and others such as Kenny Brandt, Eddie Rodick and others as well. I had a great talk with Eddie Rodick and especially with his Banjo player, Ron Slgua who's been preforming since he was 7 years old with all the Cleveland greats including Frankie Yankovic. We had a great time at the three day festival and you can see for yourself the great performing that took place.

    What do you think of the Eddie Rodick video? Have you ever been to the Illinois State Polka Fest? Here's also A You Tube video of The Music Connection.....
