The 4th Annual Toledo Area Polka Society ("TAPS") Picnic takes places this Friday & Saturday, June 15 & 16 at Oak Shade Grove (Oregon, OH).

Friday:
John Stevens Doubleshot - 6:30-10:30pm

Saturday:
Buffalo Concertina All Stars and
(Michael Costa &) The Beat - 3-11pm

And speaking of The Beat...Polka music just doesn't get much better than this song.

The first track off their debut album - a catchy & upbeat song, vocals so good you'd swear it was a "top Pop song" on the radio, and a group of musicians who are simply phenomenal together.

And, of course, Al Al Al! Enjoy.
