LynnMarie & the Boxhounds -Returning for her second year in a row to the Sandy Oktoberfest, the 3 time Grammy nominee from Nashville, took the 2004 Oktoberfest by storm, and looks to do the same again this year. The ďPrincess of PolkaĒÖ. along with her band, the Boxhounds, brings her "high energy" accordian blending traditional polka with a combination of folk, country, Cajun, tex-mex and rock to the mainstage of the Biergarten for five shows over two nights.

LynnMarie has performed on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno; the Regis & Kelly Show," and The Late Show with David Letterman," as well as having appeared at the "Grand Ole Opery." Once you see her perform you will agree she is a "rising star."

Raised on traditional polka music by her father, also an accordian player, LynnMarie can compete with anyone in the Polka genre of music. And, as the first female to earn a Grammy nomination for "Best Polka Album," LynnMarie is changing the face of polka music. Her blending of traditional polka with rock, country and pop with a high energy performance has garnered her worldwide recognition as an established artist with her fingers on the pulse of what is considered a new generation of Polka.

Today, she is one of the most recognized and accomplished artists of Polka. As she travels the world she is still amazed at the loyalty of her fans, the new fans she turns on to polka music and the many people who continually say to her......"I didn't know you could do that with an accordion!!!"
