2pm – 5pm: Chmielewski Funtime Band-

For over 100 years and through six generations, the Chmielewski family has been synonymous with polka music.  The Chmielewski Family tradition began in the late 1800’s with Frank Chmielewski, playing the fiddle while travelling by horse and buggy.  The tradition was later passed on to Frank’s son Tony and brothers Nick and John, who also played the fiddle in the local town halls.

In 1945, at the age of 18, Tony’s son Florian, began his musical career when he performed his first job for a local wedding dance with a repertoire of only four songs.  Florian later organized the Chmielewski Brothers Orchestra with his four brothers before producing the Polish TV Party in 1955.

In 1994, Florian was inducted in the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in New Ulm, MN and in 1995, he was inducted in the Ironworld USA Hall of Fame in Chisholm, MN along with his daughter Patty.  In 2013, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Law and Music for his 26 years serving in the MN State Senate and his outstanding music history.

Although the current band primarily consists of three generations with Florian, his daughter Patty and her son Nick, the Chmielewski Band spans through six generations of family musicians ranging from ages 3 to 88 who can be seen performing at special events.  In addition to managing both the Chmielewski band and tour business, Patty and her husband Michael recently launched the weekly “Funtime Polka Party” heard on KBEK 95.5 FM Saturdays from 12-1pm that’s bound to keep polka music thriving through generations to come.
