At the time that rock was reaching its crescendo, and in the era when country was dazzling the nation, a strange phenomenon was taking place:  the rising popularity of JIMMY STURR as the hottest musical attraction in the polka genre.  Now, Jimmy Sturr and his Orchestra are on the top ten list of All-Time Grammy Award Winners, having garnered 18 Grammy Awards, and more consecutive Grammy nominations than anyone in Grammy history.


Many great things have happened to Jimmy Sturr and his orchestra, but none has been more exciting than just completing their fourth recording with country superstar Willie Nelson.  In addition, they’ve recorded with luminaries like The Oakridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Boots Randolph, Mel Tillis, Brenda Lee, Bela Fleck, Arlo Guthrie, and Alison Krauss.


No one has done more for the polka field than this Irishman from the little village of Florida, New York.  Seeing is believing!  When you see Jimmy Sturr and His Polka Band, you’ll know why they draw huge crowds, are consistently voted #1 in the country, and considered “The Best in Polka Music!”
