Verdi Club: Mitch Polzak & The Royal Deuces at the Woodchopper’s Ball

January 28 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Mitch Polzak and The Royal Deuces were founded in California in 1999, and have been entertaining audiences worldwide with their highly original sound and show ever since. The three-piece band, fronted by Polzak on guitar and vocals, plays a wide representation of American Roots Music from Rockabilly to Honky Tonk. Polzak’s energy, showmanship, and ability to connect with his audience, as well as his diverse background in multiple genres (including Cajun, Bluegrass and Surf), contributes to what sets his sound and show apart from other bands.

The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district.
