Polka Streng plays strictly Zappa
The bow to Frank Zappa, the biggest promotor of Bohemian Polka in non-classic rock music.
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.
„Our basic concept is rather the opposite of unplugged.“
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.
Besides works of Frank Zappa there are also Polkas from Deep Purple, Tom Waits, King Crimson and many more.
Polka Streng are promising: „When performing for one hour we are going to play 100% Zappa - since we are at Zappanale. (Aside from some beats of Bohemian Polka, but they for sure originate from Frank's Czech ancestors!).“
