Concert organizer Greg Komeshok wants to thank the many sponsors that have made this concert possible along with the City of Passaic for their assistance.

This year’s concert will be dedicated to the memory of the late Councilman/Assemblyman Lou Gill who was a key organizer of this concert since its inception.

Sturr said “I am excited to be back for another night under the stars in the Passaic-Clifton area where there is a rich heritage for polka music. It will be great for people to be free of quarantine for one night. We are planning a great show and hope that everyone will attend and tell their neighbors and friends. Let’s have a party”.
