The Bob Kuether Band comes to St. James Episcopal Church for our 10AM worship on Sunday, May 17 to provide music for a Polka Mass. Polka music with lyrics adapted to a worship setting will replace our hymns and service music on that day and some dancing in the aisles is encouraged! Our choir will rehearse the music and will help lead our congregation in singing along.
Bob is the son of long-time member Lee Kuether, and formed his own band in 1970. His band plays polkas and dance music at venues all over northeast Wisconsin.
The polka mass tradition began in the 1970s. Various bands have adapted and shared commonly used hymn lyrics and popular polka tunes.
All people are welcome at St James Episcopal Church regardless of gender, race, age, social class, political view, sexual orientation, background, ability level, or marital status.
