The Bouncing Czechs
"TUCSON'S POLKA BAND"   


The Bouncing Czechs Band was formed 18 years ago by members of the Tucson Czech-Slovak Club.  The initial members were George Masa, Frank Prokop, John Prokop, Bill Kohut and Joe Malik.  The band initially played for club functions, but as they became more popular, played for other events in the city of Tucson.  Today the principal members are:
John Prokop on Tuba
Roxanna Baker on Accordion and Vocals
Budd Malchus on Clarinet and Alto Saxophone
Scotty Welch on Trumpet/Flugelhorn and Vocals
Dan Duperre on Drums
Substitutes:
Steve Yool on Accordion
Ben Buette on Drums
JR Prokop on Tuba

The Bouncing Czechs have been popular for dancing and have played at mobile home parks, Senior communities, Fraternal organizations, Tucson and Phoenix Area Arts Festivals, Arizona Casinos, numerous private parties, and Tucson ethnic clubs. A complete list of groups for which we have performed can be seen by going to:  Performance History

The Bouncing Czechs perform throughout the year.   We are experienced and accomplished musicians that love to play our music for Southern Arizona audiences.   Please consider us when you are planning your event and, by all means, please come and hear us at one of our performances.  We will be happy to consider opportunities that require traveling outside of the Tucson area.

We also can perform as a Polka Trio we call the "Musikmeisters."   

                                                    Email John Prokop

We are located in Sunny Tucson, Arizona
The music of the Bouncing Czechs ranges from the traditional band music played in the Czech Republic and Slovakia - polkas and waltzes, as well as music of other central European countries, to the popular American music of the pre-Be Bop era.  The band has available an extensive library of Czech and Slovak and other Polka music, as well as the popular music of this country.  We have become very popular for Tucson area Oktoberfests, and even will dress in our Lederhosen and Dirndl costumes.  The Bouncing Czechs can put together a musical program for almost any occasion.

The Fall of 2014 is starting to take shape.  We will once again be playing at the Sierra Vista Elks Oktoberfest on Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6.  We play each evening from 6:30 to 10:30 PM.  This is much earlier than previous years but should be an outstanding event.

If you want our band for your Oktoberfest celebration, let us know so we can work with you on a date and program to make it very special.

Don't forget that we welcome the opportunity to consider events away from Tucson and Southern Arizona.
