What a success!

 

The Polka Party 2009 was enjoyed by everybody - public and musicians. No one could believe the enthusiasm of the Dutch fans.

 

Every artists was received a warm welcome and crowd went wild for the music.

 

The audians ranged from young to old with most being in there 20s or 30s. But let’s not forget that some of Holland’s oldest and most trusted fans also enjoyed the shows.

 

The artists were amazed and thrilled with the reaction of the crowds to there music. It was said that it was a long time since people come just for the music.

 

Every artist hopes that the Dutch fans want them to come!

 

Back as almost everyone of them left Holland with a tear in there eyes.

Sincerely,

Jelse Vos and John Hasper.

I would personally like to thank everyone involved with the Netherlands Polka Party 2009 for helping to make our trip a resounding success. The Dutch people have a love for this music that is remarkable, and their support and enthusiasm for our style of polkas are unmatched anywhere else in the World. The hospitality of your fans help to remind me of why we continue to perform as musicians, as it has more to do with the friendships we make than anything else. I hope to return again one day soon, and I appreciate all the efforts made by the people of the Netherlands to keep this music going. Polka music is a common bond that many of us share, and it shows that no matter where you are from, we can all have something in common, together.

This was my first trip to the Netherlands and what a super week it was! It was a pleasure to perform for some of the biggest fans of polka music I’ve ever seen.  And what a treat for me to see so much interest in button box music!  Maybe one day in the future the Netherlands will have their own button box group Thank you and we love you polka fans in the Netherlands!

 

Linda Hochevar

Our trip to Holland was the best one that I can remember. It is a great honor to have people get excited about what we do, and I hope this trip happens many times over and over again in the near future. It was so amazing that everyone knew the words to "La Ronda on my Honda," considering the fact that I have not performed the song on stage in over 20 years. I would like to thank everyone in the Netherlands for coming to see us and I hope that we get the chance to do it again.

I had a wonderful time! We were treated very well, and it was great to meet so many polka fans! I wish all of  you could come to Cleveland to visit us. I was very impressed with the wide range of ages that came to our shows and the enthusiasm we found from all of our fans. They truly love polka music with a passion! It was a pleasure to work with all of the talented entertainers in our group. Each one brought their special talents for everyone to enjoy. Also, you will not find a better website for polkas than this one! Thank you all,
