The 2020 Big Squeeze Polka State Champion, Isaak Klaus was born with a pretzel in one hand and a sausage-on-a-stick in the other. His love for polka music began from listening to his dad's collection of polka CD's and from watching all of the awesome bands at Wurstfest.
The frontman for The Lederhosen Junkies, Isaak's has played at many festivals across Texas including the Tomball German Heritage Fest, the Fredericksburg Oktoberfest, the Muenster Germanfest, and the New Braunfels Wurstfest. His zany outlook on life, mixed with his unusual knowledge of historical facts, and his love for all things German makes him one of the most interesting men in the world. With his easy going attitude and his irresistible charm, his clean cut appearance gives the Junkies a resemblance of respectability.
A member of the Lederhosen Junkies from the beginning, Dustin began his playing drums as a child, learning from his father. Not just a performer, Dustin has been drum teacher as well. Called the "Pun Master", by the band, his zany jokes will tickle your funny bone. From polka to house beats Dustin's drums are the tempo the Lederhosen Junkies march to!
When asked about his favorite part of performing with the Lederhosen Junkies, he proudly states "Free beer! That's what drummers run on."
Don't spill your beer when Sean Malicki toots his horn! Sean isn't afraid to jazz it up when playing your favorite German tunes. He is no stranger to polka music either. His grandparents played in a folk band and passed on their love of music to their grandson.
Watch out when Sean's on stage, he sometimes breaks out some of his signature dance moves and wows the crowd!
