About Our Performers!

Ken and Mary Turbo Accordion

Ken brings over 40 years of music experience to the accordion duo. His music background includes not only playing the button-style accordion but also the tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, and mandola. He taught in the Creative Arts program at Ohio State University from 1979 through 1984. He was even bestowed the title “Baron of the Banjo” by Frankie Yankovic. Ken had his own rag/jazz band for many years, playing in and around Ohio as well as performing in the German Pavilion at Disney’s Epcot Center and at the Altstadt Fest in Goslar/Harz, Germany. He adds to the “Ken and Mary” duo his expertise on the 5-row diatonic harmonika, also called the button box or button accordion.

 

Mary’s music career has spanned over 30 years, playing both the organ and the piano  accordion. She has  performed at numerous festivals, banquets, and for parties.  She currently brings to “Ken and Mary” her magical talent on the standard piano accordion.

The Polka Pirates

Our small combo has provided thousands of senior living residents with memorable music for almost 20 years.

Toledo Bavarian Sports Dancers

The Bavarian Sports Club was founded in 1930 by 14 soccer players. While soccer is in our DNA, the BSC is best known for dancing! Our dance Group D'Holzhacker Buam is currently ranked as 13th in the nation as a Schuhplattler Gruppe. We perform at various festivals and private events all year round and as you might expect, we get super busy as the Oktoberfest Season comes around.  In addition to our Adult group we have a large kinder group, bell ringers and whip performers. Our Club also has a very active Ladies Auxiliary, Motorcycle riding group, a shooting group, and more. We meet at our home at 2102 Lagrange St. where we celebrate our heritage "All Year Long" at the Last remaining Private German Clubhouse in the Greater Toledo Area.
