It started back around 2006, in Milwaukee, WI.
In the diverse, artistic, "bohemian" neighborhood known as Riverwest,
forgotten accordions made their way out of musty basements and
into the hands of some eager, fun, creative people with a dream...
A dream to connect Milwaukee's roots to its future...
A dream to create something vital, communal, and FUN!!
The spirit of polka still breathes.... in Milwaukee!
