Description

Recorded at Toronto Sound Studios by producer Greg Hambleton in 1975, the album features the original recording of the world famous Oktoberfest Polka song “Stand And Sing Ein Prosit” written for Walter by Axe songwriter David Lodge. The album was first introduced at Kitchener, Ontario’s Oktoberfest Celebrations. Musicians include Walter Ostanek (Accordian), Murray McFadgen (Vocals), Vil Clemitis (drums), Ken Cenko (Guitar/Banjo), Roy Bice (Sax) & Ron Podio (Bass).

The Walter Ostanek Band plays Cleveland-style polka with a pared-down band of accordion, guitar or banjo, bass and drums, plus a horn player who alternates on clarinet, tenor saxophone, and flute. The Cleveland style draws heavily on the traditional polkas of Slovenia.

He has toured the world from Rio De Janeiro to Slovenia and an invited guest on TV shows hosted by Johnny Carson and Phil Donahue. Walter has gone on to collect an impressive number of awards and credits and has gained a solid reputation as one of the most entertaining and crowd pleasing musicians in any musical format.
