Songs of the Polka King Release Party with Joey Miskulin & the KTB

When: Sun., Nov. 28

Frank Yankovic recorded an estimated 200 + albums and capped off his reign with the release of Songs of the Polka King in 1995 and Songs of the Polka King, Vol. 2, issued just before his passing. Now these two Grammy-nominated albums have been digitally remastered and combined by Cleveland International Records appropriately titled Songs of the Polka King – The Ultimate Collection on CD and as a 2 LP set, available on vinyl for the very first time. Tonight's special show at the Beachland Ballroom features the recordings’ producer Joey Miskulin, who became friends with Yankovic when he was still a young accordion player at 13. Miskulin went on to become a well known producer in Nashville and spent years on the road with Riders in the Sky. He just recently returned to the Cleveland area. The concert begins at 2 p.m.; check the Beachland website for ticket prices.
