The Boys released a brand new CD, “Where The Boys Are,” on January 1, 2016. The 15 tracks on this album include a new, original composition, eight innovative arrangements, and six classic polka selections that exemplify the high-energy, signature sound of The Boys. Polka Hall of Famer Frank Liszka composed and sings his original: Mary Jane, a catchy, exuberant polka that instantly grabs the listener. He also rearranged and sings the powerful classics of Blue Ohio Dreamer, Uphill Climb, I’m Gonna Live It Up, Love Of A Lifetime, and Stop The World and Let Me Off. Frank’s duet with Stacey Morris, the USPA’s Female Vocalist of the Year, on Love Makes the World Go Around is really something special. The Boys believe their renditions of the My Girl/Modern Girls Polka Medley, Where Did The Boys Go Oberek, Mr. Pan Polka (featuring reed work by guest artist Eddie Siwiec), Mom and Dad Know Best Waltz, and Flirting Polka would have made Eddie Blazonczyk Sr., Li’l Wally, and Frank Wojnarowsk mutually proud! Al Puwalski is featured on his arrangement of I Don’t Believe I’ll Fall In Love Today; while Mike Matousek sings his arrangement of I’ll Never Find Another You. Last but not least, Dave Morris is featured on the fun and lively: I Wish I Was A Millionaire Polka. Throughout the album you’ll hear harmonies sung by Frank, Al, Mike Evan, and Mike Matousek. Polka fans can order the CD by sending an $18 check, payable to “Mike Matousek” at 8372 Williamstowne Dr., Millersville, MD 21108. Discover Where The Boys Are!
