About the Bands: 

Park City Polka Players
Composed of five classically trained musicians, the Park City Polka Players are a fully acoustic ensamble based off the traditional German and American style Oompah Band. Their repertoire consists of a wide variety of traditional German polkas, marches, and waltzes. The group is also always adding new arrangements of music that connects with the audience including popular songs with a polka twist. 

The PickPockets
The Pickpockets were formed in 2018 in Salt Lake City. What began as a weekly jam at the local cidery has now matured into a full fledged force of nature. With an expansive repertoire of songs, a healthy mix of heartfelt original tunes and a full serving of funky jams, The Pickpockets energy and excitement breathe new life into the traditional bluegrass instrumentation.
