Brave Combo is a legendary polka band with a unique sound. They have been nominated for a Grammy award seven times and have won twice. Trying to describe Brave Combo’s music requires a pretty extensive vocabulary – at least when it comes to musical styles. For the past three decades the Denton, Texas based quintet has perfected a world music mix that includes salsa, meringue, rock, cumbia, conjunto, polka, zydeco, classical, cha cha, the blues and more. They are America’s Premier Dance band and a rollicking, rocking, rhythmic global journey — offering what one critic recently wrote, “Even if you come for the party, you’ll leave with something of a musical education.”
The Piney Woods PolkaFest!! with Brave Combo is funded in part by a grant from The Texas Commission on the Arts and sponsored by Cutshaw Chevrolet and Wal-Mart.
J. Bryan Lake, Executive Director of Piney Wood Fine Arts says, “Brave Combo is a band that rocks the brain and the feet. Ask anyone that was there last year…this is fun!!”
