Band from Ohio

The Chardon Polka Band performed in Marysville in 2018.

“We’re excited to come back and party with the fine folks of Marshall County, Kan.,” said Jake Kouwe, founder of the Chardon Polka Band.

The four-person band, who performed in Marysville at Big Blue River Days in 2018, is returning to the area for a three-day residency. They will perform in every elementary school in Marshall County, and they will give a concert at 7 p.m. Friday at the Oketo Community Center, 106 Center St. A freewill donation will be accepted.
