About Us

About the Band

Angie Kriz and The PolkaToons play mostly Czech polkas and waltzes, but also add lots of variety and fun to their parties! They are a three piece band consisting of primarily Angie on button accordion and vocals, Craig Falls on Tuba, and usually Justin Patrick on Drums.

Angie, who started off playing accordion with The Leonard Havranek polka band, has a distinct love for the music and for people…expect her music to come from the heart and expect a hug!

Craig has been playing tuba since he first started as a kid and is exceptionally strong at it. He has earned the nickname “Turbo Tuba” for good reason! Craig also plays bass guitar with the famous Sidetrack Band for Nebraska Home football games and brings his bass along to polka gigs for a little variety and to have the opportunity to sing harmony.

Justin has drummed with many polka bands including Kevin Chelewski. He is always ready to jam with love and polka in his heart.

With the three of them together you are sure to have a fun night of dancing and shenanigans! Thank you to Jason Falls who drummed with us for many years. It was so special to have you with us and we wish you all the happiness in the world. Also, a special thanks to Allen Rerucha who was the original drummer of the band, taught us so much, and is always welcome to come share his many talents with us!
