Martin Serro's passion for Cleveland Style Polkas and Slovenian culture precipitated over sixty years of distinguished service in the American-Slovenian community. Learning the button box at an early age, Martin led his own band from 1935-1942. In 1960 Martin and Lou LaValle got together. Martin Serro traveled to Slovenia more than 30 times to visit family and bring accordions to America. Martin Serro was inducted into the Cleveland Style Polka Hall of Fame in 1998 for the song he co-wrote called Slovenian Picnic Waltz what would beome a Greatest All-Time Cleveland Style Waltz.

SLOVENIAN PICNIC WALTZ

 

It seems that we’re back in Slovenia

A country with great little towns

The Singing, the dancing, the laughter

Are things I’ll never forget

The memories, the melodies, the moments

Making friends you’ll never regret
