Fritz's Polka Band

Fritz's Polka Band
Fritz's Polka Band (FPB) was formed in 1978
by lead accordionist, the late Fred Scherz Sr., and
his eight-year old son, Fritz, for whom the band
was named. FPB has vowed to carry on his legacy
after Fred's passing. Playing everything from
modern-style polka to country to rock and even
blues! FPB is NOT the stereotypical "polka" band.
In fact, FPB is known for breaking the “polka”
stereotype and is the only polka band to perform
at a Woodstock Festival (’99)! Fritz’s Polka Band
has made 20 recordings, which have achieved
international airplay. In 2011, FPB had two
songs appear on ‘Breaking Bad’ during the fourth
season. In 2023, Fritz Scherz was inducted into the
National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame!

Greens & Beans

Greens & Beans is a tasty soup/meal which
originated with the people of Italy during
the great depression. It was a family staple at
that time and has since continued as a family
tradition with the emphasis being on “family,
passion for living and enjoying life”.
The band Greens & Beans originated with that
premise in mind but with a twist. Two old
friends got together with their families to enjoy
their passion for making music together and
sharing it with you. Please “enjoy” your time
with us today!

John Readdean, Bass/Guitar/Vocals – John has
played guitar from a very early age and migrated
to the Bass guitar in later years. John is the
Founder and leader of “CleenStreet” which has
taken many forms through the years. Whatever
the variation of members is, John always lays
down a rock-solid foundation.
Joe Sanges, Guitar Vocals – Joe is a lifelong resident
in Upstate NY. Around the time of the British
invasion, he was struck with the guitar bug and
played guitar with anyone and everyone he could,
and finally met his brother from another mother in seventh grade. Through the years John & Joe

Woodstock, Nashville and White Plains NY. In
2014 Joe released a CD, “The Path least Taken.”

are known for their Smooth jazz sound with their
jazz groups. His feel for rock music and his solid

with many other bands in upstate NY, like Moxi,
Holidaye, XLR8 and Target just to mention a few.
David Battelene, Guitar/Vocal – Inspired, like
many, by the Beatles, took up the guitar and
played. At age 8 he had his first gig at older
brother’s (drummer) 6 grade graduation. Born in
Central NY David’s family relocated to Arizona

groups. In 1987 he had the good fortune to
