Hearing the term “Polkastar” might be a little surprising, however after meeting Johnny Koenig one realizes that is exactly what this young musician is. It’s a little bit genetics and a whole lot of hard work, but Johnny has become a recognized force in the Polka genre. He was born into the musical style – Johnny’s father was the front man of his own acclaimed band for many years. It was an auspicious start for the making of a Polkastar.
When he isn’t out touring in one of 25 states, Canada or Europe, Johnny can be found at home in Pittsburgh. A close, personal experience with 9/11 as a child growing up in NYC caused Johnny to become involved with first responders, and he devotes his non-music time to saving lives as a paramedic.
