Polka Streng plays polkas – harsh polkas. And rock. Actually Polka Streng plays polka and rock as one, because this is how it should be and because it reflects the band´s philosophy: „Think polka, play rock!“

The basic theory
The root and primary pillar of non-classic rock music is the polka. The Bohemian polka, that is. And its favourite cousin from South Eastern Europe.

The musical material
Polkas by Deep Purple, Tom Waits, King Crimson and many more. Not to forget Frank Zappa.

The project
Polka Streng, a brass band in its most basic line-up (2 trumpets, 1 baritone saxophone), powered by a rock band (guitar, bass, drums), presents Bohemian polkas found in non-classic rock music. An evening full of great experiences, new polkas and very true stories.

The line-up
Ernst Dworski: trumpet, vocals
Werner Köckeis: trumpet, vocals
Max Stallybrass: baritone saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, vocals
Manfred Jüngling: guitar, vocals
Reinhard Lamprecht: bass, vocals
Franz Maurer: drums, mallets, vocals
