“A Polka and Pop Pontiac Christmas” with the Polish Muslims
Plus Stewart Francke and The Kielbasa Kings
The Crofoot Ballroom on Saturday Dec. 20th 2008

Partial Proceeds to Benefit Gilda’s Club
Largest Kielbasa Wreath Unveiled!

With the Holiday season upon us, children's thoughts turn to sugarplums, xbox 360s, and...the polka! Yes, it's that time of year again, and this season it's metro Detroit's favorite polka rock parodists, The Polish Muslims at The Crofoot Ballroom, (1 S. Saginaw Street, Pontiac, Ph: 248-858-9333) on Saturday, December 20. As has been the tradition their last few Christmas season shows, their very special guests will be blue-eyed soulster Stewart Francke. Opening the show will be the Kielbasa Kings, an anything but traditional polka band, whose polka version of the Violent Femmes "Blisters in the Sun" has made them local favorites.

Partial proceeds from the show will benefit Gilda's Club of Royal Oak, a free, non-residential cancer support community.

And as if that's not enough we’ll be spicing up the evening with the unveiling of “The World’s (we think!) Largest Kielbasa Christmas Wreath,” generously sponsored by the Kowalski Sausage Company.

Doors are at 8 p.m., and all ages are welcome to attend. Advance Tickets are $8 /$10 the day of the show. Tickets are now available at the Crofoot box office or at

The Polish Muslims have been a Detroit/Hamtramck institution for 27 years! Nowhere in metro Detroit can you feast your ears on anything droller, more wry, more musically comedic than the Polish Muslims, an eight-piece band whose vibrant renderings of classic pop and punk songs satirize their own Polish heritage with an ever-provincial eye on Hamtramck.

Since their inception in the 1980s, The Polish Muslims have managed to blaze a trail of sold out shows, radio and TV appearances and dozens of outdoor summer concerts, all without taking themselves too seriously. From live simulcasts on Detroit's WCSX, WDET, WNIC AND Windsor's 89X, to their local Emmy nominated music video on WXYZ-ABC, The Polish Muslims are a beloved Detroit music tradition.
