2020 July Part 2

Don & Gail Haderle's 
POLKAOUTWEST Blog For July 2020

This is a continuation of the May/June posting. To refresh your memory: For 10 years Mel & Pauline Stodola had an annual polka party in Temecula at their property called Sky Ranch. Over the 10 years that they held the party, just about every Slovenian polka musician in the USA showed up and our favorite Italian band led by Steve Balich, Sr. What started as a weekend party turned into a 3-4 day polka festival.

The ranch is on the top of a hill surrounded by avocado and grapefruit trees. Dale Buse brought in one of his dance floors which was set up next to the house under a big tent. Roman Possedi was the emcee of the event and set the schedule of performers under the tent. Don Agresti spit roasted a hog from his farm and supplied fruit, vegetables, and pasta. Everyone brought food for the potlucks. The party went from noon to late evening on Saturday and Sunday.

In the previous posting, we provided a link to 10 videos of the performances at the party. The following link will take you to the next 9 performances. Enjoy.
