Opening Night Music by Boogie Wonderland

It’s official! Minnesota’s favorite Disco Dance Rock and Roll Tribute band will be performing at 6 PM on Friday night, August 8 on the Polka Stage at the 2014 Twin Cities Polish Festival.

Boogie Wonderland play all your classic disco dance floor favorites from those great days of the seventies and early eighties… back in the good old days when trousers were flared, collars were wide and Saturday Night Fever was huge!

The band is made up of seasoned music industry pros, all with one thing in common – they love the funk! They aren’t a stuffy “function band” playing the same old corporate standards. Only the best soul/funk and disco is allowed in their set.

For more information about Boogie Wonderland, visit their website at:

Historical Poles to know

Duke Leszek I the White advocates alternative concept to the Crusades

No stranger to war and conflict, when most of Europe was heading off to the Crusades, the position of the Polish nobility was put forth in a letter by Leszek to Pope Honorius III, Duke Leszek I the white, that he nor any self-respecting Polish Knight can not get on an expedition to "the Holy Land", because-as announced-there is neither wine nor honey, or even beer.

It wasn't cowardice. Duke Leszek presented an alternative concept: that instead of the Crusades and its military response, that there should be peaceful economic expansion. "You should arrange trade between Poland and Prussia by regulating exports, the most sought after products – iron, salt and weapons. Leszek argued that a great city must be set up – on the Prussian territory- that will be the main distributor of the goods. Leszek believed that non-native Prussians be gradually assimiliated and learn the Christian faith "

Leszek was later assassinated - it is believed by Duke Swietopelk of Pomerelia - as a result of Leszek attempting to force the duke to submit to his authority. Swietopelk upon Leszek's death declared himself independent from Polish vassalship. (2 photos)
