Piney Woods PolkaFest to feature Brave Combo

CROCKETT, September 21, 2013--The Piney Woods PolkaFest! with Brave Combo is Oct 5, at the Houston County airport.

Join the fun for authentic German food and drink, and dance to America’s favorite polka band, Brave Combo. Presented by the Piney Woods Fine Arts Association, fun for all ages but kids under 18 get in free. Tickets are $22 in advance or $27 at-the-door and can be purchased online at www.pwfaa.org or by calling 936- 544-4276. Back due to the overwhelming response from last year’s festival, this family-friendly event is a good time for all.

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 a pretty 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.”

The Piney Woods PolkaFest! with Brave Combo is funded in part by a grant from The Texas Commission on the Arts and sponsored by Renaissance Surgery Center and Cutshaw Chevrolet.

J. Bryan Lake, Executive Director of Piney Wood Fine Arts says, “Brave Combo is a band that rocks the brain and the feet. Ask anyone that was there last year…this is fun!”

The Piney Woods PolkaFest! with Brave Combo is at the Houston County airport on Hwy 7, just east of Crockett.  The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. No outside food or drinks are allowed.  For more information go to www.pwfaa.org, or call the Piney Woods Fine Arts office Mon-Fri, from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., at 936-544-4276.
