Fri., July 05, Zicke Zacke
LowBrau, 9 p.m., no cover
Harley White Jr. received Sammies in 2010 and 2012 for his work as a jazz musician. He's a composer, the founder and frontman of the orchestra bearing his name and has collaborated with numerous local musicians. His repertoire also includes swing, blues, funk and pop, but he's stretching his musical legs as a member of Zicke Zacke to bring some fun and funk to polka. He'll play tuba and bass, Jim Shoemaker and Steve Stizzo will bring the accordion to life, and Erick DaPrato will hit the skins. Expect polkas like only these guys can play them. And a few party favorites. 1050 20th Street, www.harleywhitejr.com.
