Come hear her music, tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Music Through the Decades - David Polansky
Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals, David presents the music of George M. Cohan, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael and others - music inspired by the advent of the automobile, the two world wars, the Roaring 20’s, the great depression, and the wild west. David engages the audience, taking questions, performing requests, and telling funny anecdotes about famous musicians as well as some about his own life as a musician. A career musician, David has played with Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger, Arthur Fiedler, The Platters, The Coasters and many more!
