Polkamotion 2015 was a Blast!

Many thanks to all the wonderful polka fans who came down to support Polkamotion 2015! It was another great week and the weather was spectacular. Due to the 12 - 15 month construction project at the Rehoboth Beach City Hall/Convention Center that begins this November, we're looking for a convenient venue in Rehoboth Beach to run a dance or two during the same week next year. During this year's festival, close to 300 polka people indicated they are coming down in 2016 despite the unavailability of the convention hall and would appreciate some live polka entertainment. We'll do our best to come up with something for next year so stay tuned. Fortunately, Polkamotion as we know will be back on schedule in the Convention Center in September of 2017.

Best Regards!

Mike & Mike

Great News! Polka Music Near Rehoboth in 2016!

Despite the fact that construction at the Rehoboth Beach City Hall/Convention Center will prevent Polkamotion by the Ocean from taking place in the convention hall next September, arrangements have been made to conduct polka dances at the nearby American Legion Post 17 Pavilion, 113 American Legion Rd, Lewes, DE. So, mark your calendars as follows:

On Thursday, September 15, 2016, Polka Family will perform from 6 pm - 10 pm.

The Eddie Forman Orchestra with a special Charm City Sound Reunion show will be featured on Friday, September 16 from 6 pm - 10 pm.

The Polka Country Musicians will wrap things up at the pavilion from 6 pm - 10 pm on Saturday, September 17.

Even though the pavilion is only seven miles from Rehoboth Beach, we're looking into running a shuttle bus back and forth for folks staying in Rehoboth who prefer not to drive to the dances. After each dance, polka DJ parties are being planned at some of the fun Rehoboth Beach bars for the polka night owls.

And, the annual Polkamotion Open Golf Tournament will be conducted as usual on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Call Mike Matousek at (202) 246-7918 for more information. To keep up with the details as they unfold, visit www.polkamotion.com and www.rbpolka.com. In 2017, the construction will be complete so Polkamotion will be back at the Convention Center as usual.




Rehoboth Beach City Hall Construction Interrupts Polkamotion in 2016

Rehoboth Beach city officials recently informed Polkamotion by the Ocean promoters Mike Matousek and Mike Ziemski that a major construction project to renovate the Rehoboth Beach City Hall facility will make the Convention Hall unavailable for all events beginning in November of 2015 through early 2017. Please note that this 12 - 15 month project will prevent Polkamotion from being conducted in the hall only in 2016, interrupting the twelve consecutive years the festival has taken place in the facility. Since the construction project will be finished in early 2017, Polkamotion will resume its regular annual schedule in the hall beginning on September 13 - 17, 2017.

Matousek and Ziemski will be looking for feedback from this year's Polkamotion polka fans as to whether they should attempt to arrange some kind of polka music at another facility in Rehoboth Beach next September for those who plan their annual vacations during the usual festival week.

Please forward any feedback to mike@polkamotion.com, or the Polkamotion Rehoboth Facebook site.
