Travel Team - Funeral Gathering

We recently had the honor of playing a concert for an 89 year-old near Chardon, OH who requested a polka band and a dance floor for his memorial service. In going with an older tradition, we wore our normal Oktoberfest celebration uniforms, with black armbands to honor our host. In addition to the many popular polkas that we already played, we also added some county numbers specifically for this event, such as 'Hello Walls', 'Waltz Across Texas', and 'Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain'. We opened with a mid-tempo 'Just a Closer Walk With Thee' and then went into an up-tempo polka of 'I'll Fly Away', at which point we played a number specifically mentioned by the family: 'In Heaven There Is No Beer'.
