Dear Polkamotion by the Ocean Fans,

As of this writing, the Rehoboth Beach, DE municipality complex, including the convention center,

is still closed due to Covid-19 precautions. Management has no plans to reopen anytime soon

and all planned events have been canceled through early September. As a courtesy to all our fans

and friends, we think it's best to postpone Polkamotion by the Ocean until next year so folks

can make their summer plans without waiting until later in the 2021 season. God willing,

next year's festival dates will be September 14 - 17, 2022.  

Best regards,

Mike Matousek

and fewer than 6% of all eligible girls achieve it.


Check out what requirements Emma had to do to earn this prestigious award:


Click Here-Gold Award Requirements


Emma's Project is explained below:


Taken from the Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania Facebook Page--"Once Emma realized that polka music, a piece of her Polish heritage, would fade into history if young people were not introduced to it, she developed her own polka radio show to promote the music and the culture to youth. Additionally, she held dance lessons for local elementary school students. Emma's radio show, "Polka Lovin Girl", airs on Monday evenings on the Polka Jammer Network."

Dear Polkamotion Fans...

We've been in constant contact with the folks who manage the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center

concerning the feasibility of conducting Polkamotion by the Ocean this September.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the center is still closed and a decision to try to reopen

won't be made until mid-August. Even if they are able to reopen, they are extremely pessimistic

about their ability to manage the mandated restrictions governing indoor gatherings.

Given these obstacles, all parties agree that the prudent thing to do is to cancel this

year's polka festival in Rehoboth Beach. Since a significant portion of our polka fan base is

the most vulnerable to the current virus, we believe this decision is the safest

option as well. Please mark your calendars for September 15 - 18, 2021

when Polkamotion by the Ocean returns to Rehoboth Beach.

Stay well and God bless!

Prayers are powerful ~ please continue!

Here is the most recent update on Dan Gury from his son,

Matt:

Heart rate has been low so a pace maker was put in yesterday and it went well.

The doctors are now happy with his heart rate. Aphasia is what is giving him trouble

with speaking and finding the right words to say. However, he had speech therapy today,

and the therapist was impressed at how well he was doing since the first time she saw him.

Right hand and foot are making slight improvements everyday. He slowly rotated his right wrist

and can lift his right leg about 6 inches currently. We're hoping that he

will be transferred to rehab tomorrow.

----------------------------------------------

Posted 12/23/18

Please continue praying for Dan Gury.

This update is from this evening, from his son,

Matt: Update on my dad:

His last CT scan yesterday morning showed non threatening signs of swelling. There is 1 more CT scan scheduled for tomorrow morning to check but they think he already hit the high end of the swelling threshold. Speech is weak and frustrating for him at this time. He knows how to say very few words, but we can see him try to say things to us, gets frustrated, and says $h__. He can say yes, no, well, ok, and mhmm if you ask him a question. Sing slowly to him and he will join in if he knows the words, not clearly, but clear enough to know he's singing with you. Although, i did get him to count to 10 in Polish by helping him and he did continue to count a few on his own without my help. Yesterday we got him to move his right toes and ankle. Today we could see him try to move his lower right leg, but still not able to yet. H

e is on a puree diet as his swallow test came back not strong enough for regular food. We all appreciate the kind words and prayers everyone has been saying for us. Until the next update...

Love, the Gurys.

~PRAYERS PLEASE~

Great musician, leader of Dan Gury & The Dyna Dukes, and an all around great guy,

Dan Gury, needs your immediate prayers.

Please include his wife Carol, son Matt, and their family, in your thoughts and prayers, as well.


This is from Matt last night:

It makes me very sad to post news like this, but my dad, Dan Gury, suffered a severe stroke last night

December 19th. He is going through ct scans to monitor his brain swelling and we're all praying

for the best that surgery is not required. Please keep our

dad in your thoughts and prayers.

Press Release The DynaBrass...A Polka Year in Review

Banner Year in 2018, Now Booking Performances for 2019

Toledo, OH, November 8, 2018: The year of 2018 is just about wrapped up and what a year it was for the DynaBrass.

From the January 1st Hangover Dance in New Castle, PA to the Oktoberfest in Owosso, MI and many places in between, crowds 

were good, fun was had and the DynaBrass entertained with a new level of excitement as the “Dance All Night” craze swept across 

the polka scene.

From Wisconsin to the East Coast, the DynaBrass appeared at many major polka events including Val’s Dyngus Day in Buffalo, 

Polish American Festival in Toledo, OH, USPA Festival, Milwaukee Polish Festival, Cedar Polka Fest, St. Stan’s Polish Festival in Bay 

City, Polka Fireworks at Seven Springs, Polish American Festival in Sterling Heights, MI, Pulaski Polka Days in Pulaski, WI, Boyne 

Falls Polish Fest, Zabawa Festival in Erie, PA, Polish American Festival in Doylestown, PA and the Posen Potato Festival. The band 

even worked in three very special wedding receptions into this year’s

schedule.

In March, the DynaBrass was notified that the band had been nominated for the 2017 United States Polka

Association (USPA) Awards in 3 categories; Band of the Year, Song of the Year and Recording of the Year. The 42nd annual USPA 

Awards Banquet was held on Saturday May 26, 2018 during the USPA Convention &

Festival held at the Holiday Inn in Independence, Ohio. The “Dance All Night” CD received the 2017 USPA Recording of the Year. 

 The title song “Dance All Night” received the 2017 USPA Song of the Year.

In April, The DynaBrass was notified that the band had been awarded the 2017 International Polka Association (IPA) Awards in 2 

categories; The “Dance All Night” CD received the 2017 IPA Favorite Polish Style CD. The title song “Dance All Night” received the 

2017 IPA Favorite Polish Style Song. The 49th annual IPA Awards Banquet was held on Saturday September 1, 2018 during the IPA 

Convention & Festival held at the Millennium Hotel in Buffalo, New York.

The DynaBrass is actively booking engagements for 2019 and beyond. Now is the time to get the DynaBrass booked for your next 

Polka Festival, Dance or Event. To book The DynaBrass, please contact Joe Zalewski at 419-351-5031 or via email at 

[email protected] The upcoming schedule is available online at

Jeff Mleczko Update: Jeff is doing very well, you may have even seen him this past summer at Seven Springs or Frankenmuth Summer Music Fest. While there is no timetable for his return to the stage, he continues to make progress with his rehabilitation efforts. Jeff and his family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for all the

support that Jeff has received over the past three years.

Press Release

Dance All Night

DynaBrass releases new CD on TOPOMO Records

Toledo, OH, June 26, 2017: TOPOMO Records is excited to announce the release of “Dance

All Night” a new full length recording by The DynaBrass. This new CD was recorded at PowerBox Studio

in Ridgeville Corners, Ohio.

This new CD is a collection of 15 songs, a dozen polkas, two obereks and a waltz. This studio project

features 10 songs never previously recorded by a polka band, including 7 originals by The DynaBrass,

which gives this recording a fresh new sound. You will certainly find some polka favorites on this disc,

such as “Playboy Polka”, “Out Til Dawn”, “Please Stop The World”, “Left Handed Oberek” and “Another

Good Old Polka Medley”.

The title song “Dance All Night” has a very catchy melody with some built-in crowd participation.

Based on early responses from live performances, “Dance All Night” is destined to be a fan favorite.

Joe Zalewski and Ted Lange teamed up for several original songs including “Follow Me To The

Party”, “You Are Always With Me”, “A Bottle of Red Oberek”, “Hands Of Time” and the new DynaBrass

break song “Follow Me To The Bar”, which is guaranteed to leave you walking away singing Bar, Bar,

Bar, Bar. AJ Zalewski worked with Ted and Joe to pen another original (his first) entitled “A Simple Love”.

Other songs that will grab your attention include Dale Kivinen’s rendition of the Tracy Bird hit “Holdin’

Heaven, an Alabama classic, “Old Flame” and Isla Grant’s “An Accordion Started to Play Waltz”.

Jeff Mleczko Update: Jeff is doing fantastic. While there is no timetable for his return to the

stage, he continues to make significant progress with his rehabilitation efforts. Jeff and his family would

like to extend a heartfelt thank you for all the support that Jeff has received over the past year and a half.

The DynaBrass 2017 Schedule: The DynaBrass, under the interim leadership of Joe Zalewski,

is maintaining a full performance schedule and actively booking engagements. A copy of the DynaBrass

2017 schedule is enclosed.

How to Purchase the CD: Anyone interested in purchasing the new DynaBrass CD can do so

by mailing a check payable to "TOPOMO Records" c/o Joe Zalewski, 5524 Ginger Tree Lane, Toledo,

OH 43623. The “Dance All Night” CD’s are $18 each and the price includes shipping and handling.

Thank you for your continued support of Polka Music and The DynaBrass!

Youth Polkas

RELEASE OF “AS LONG AS I’M LIVIN’’ (THE RECORDING FROM THE YOUTH RECORIDNG WORKSHOP)

AND LAUNCH OF WWW.YOUTHPOLKAS.COM


Check out what a group of over 50 youth from the Polka world did at the 2016 Polka Fireworks weekend at Seven 

Springs Mountain Resort. A “Youth Recording Workshop” was held that created an opportunity for these youth to 

experience the process creating a studio recording and music video.

The song “As Long As I’m Livin’” (written by Randy Koslosky) tells of some people who are negative about the 

future of Polkas, but these youth respond to that negativity. They are not just going to sit by and let things slip 

away and that “As long as I’m livin’, there will be Polkas playing….” John Zelasko recorded the vocalist and 

instrumentalists. He also mixed the recording and created the music video.

The song and music video are being released in conjunction with the launch of a new website: 

www.youthpolkas.com. YouthPolkas.com is dedicated to promoting and showcasing the talent of young Polka 

musicians. The video can be seen at that site and the song can be downloaded for free. All are encouraged to 

share this song with others to show a glimpse at the future of Polka music in action.

This special event couldn’t have happened without the efforts and dedication of so many people starting with the 

parents and families of the youth who participated.

Special thanks to the Blazonczyk family for their devotion to passing on Polka music to the younger generation 

and for hosting the event. Also, thanks to others who made special contributions to this event including Gene 

Swick, Frank Stetar, Kevin Adams, Bernie Koslosky, Ted Lange, Lisa Koslosky and the International Polka 

Association.
