The aforementioned Dan Gury original compositions placed the Dyna-Dukes huge on the 70's polka radar screen and gave notice that this outfit were certainly "Not and never would be Your Average Polka Band"!Oct 14, · Grammy Award Winning, Eddie Blazonczyk's Versatones - I Love Wanda Polka March 19, Binghamton, NY Musicians: Kevin Adams - Trumpet Ed Wolinski - Trumpet Eddie Blazonczyk Sr. - Bass & Lead.
