‘Squeezebox’ coming to Stiftungsfest
Stiftungsfest organizers are excited to announce that Squeezebox, featuring Ted Lange and Mollie B, will play at Stiftungsfest (Aug. 23-25) this summer. Squeezebox and Molly B will play both Saturday and Sunday under the big tent.
Molly B is followed by many people every Saturday evening on RFD T.V. on the Mollie B Polka Party.
Squeezebox, based in Ohio, specializes in multiple genres of music including polkas, waltzes, fox-trots, 2-steps, big band, swing, square dances, and figure dances. With a playlist of over 600 selections, the group is able to accommodate nearly everyone’s requests at their performances, and strive to please everybody in attendance, both on and off the dance floor!
With their diverse play list and solid vocals in English, Czech, German, and Polish, the band is able to adapt to any venue, ranging from town festivals, polka festivals, German festivals and Oktoberfests to weddings, anniversary parties, church festivals and music festivals.
Squeezebox began in the late 1990s under a different name, known at that time as “The Bratwurst Boys,” which was a part time spin-off band consisting of members from the Grammy Nominated “Toledo Polkamotion.”
However, as the band and members evolved through the years, and as their playlist continued to diversify, it was evident that the name was no longer an adequate representation of the band.
In 2006, Mollie B joined Ted Lange and the band name was changed to Squeezebox. Since that time, their fan base has continued to grow and they have become a band in high demand all over the U.S. Currently, Squeezebox performs over 100 engagements a year, in over 20 states a year, and appears regularly on the “Mollie B Polka Party” on RFD-TV, now broadcast into over 60 million households via DISH Network, Direct TV and over 600 independent cable systems. Their music is also broadcast all over the U.S. both on radio and internet broadcasts.
