NEWSFLASH COURTESY OF JACOB KOUWE

The Chardon Polka Band, a group birthed in the halls of Chardon High School, is set to perform at Cleveland's THE BEACHLAND BALLROOM this coming Friday. The ballroom will make an interesting addition to the already eclectic list of venues the group has performed at including dance halls, nursing homes, parades, festivals, schools, plant nurseries, garden parties, and fund raisers. Noted for "not being your average polka band", the group is composed primarily of 20-somethings with the one exception being sixty-three year old drummer Paul "Pops" Magooch. Other members include mohawked tuba player Paul "Odd Job" Coates and eccentric long-haired accordion player Jake Kouwe. The band is ever energetic and entertaining whether they be playing for assisted living residents or on stage at one of various Ohio festivals.
Fridays show at the Beachland Ballroom will also feature local Chardon folk band, The Timeberwolves; and Heelsplitter, an americana group well known in the Cleveland music scene. Doors will open at 8:00, with a show start time of 9:00. Tickets are just three dollars.
