Brave Combo is a legendary polka band with a unique sound. They have been nominated for a Grammy award seven times and have won twice. Trying to describe Brave Combo’s music requires an extensive vocabulary – at least when it comes to musical styles.  For the past three decades the Denton, Texas based quintet has perfected a world music mix that includes salsa, meringue, rock, cumbia, conjunto, polka, zydeco, classical, cha cha, the blues and more.  They are America’s Premier Dance band and a rollicking, rocking, rhythmic global journey -- offering what one critic recently wrote, “Even if you come for the party, you'll leave with something of a musical education.” 

OktoberFest! with Brave Combo is funded in part by a grant from The Texas Commission on the Arts and sponsored by Cutshaw Chevrolet and Crockett Insurance Service. 

OktoberFest! with Brave Combo starts at 7:00pm and the doors will open at 6:00pm.  No outside food or drinks are allowed.  For more information, go to www.pwfaa.org, follow us on Facebook, or call the Piney Woods Fine Arts office Mon-Fri from 8:30am-2:30pm at (936) 544-4276.
