Joe Patek - Joe Patek Live At East Bernard & The Magic of Joe Patek (Double Album)
Joseph "Joe" Patek was the leader of one of the best known Czech polka bands in Texas. One of his best known songs was "The Shiner Song," a newer version of an old Czech ballad, "Farewell To Prague." Joe Patek is credited for establishing a different style of Texas polka with its harder sound and emphasis on swing. This style with its martial brass band arrangements differentiated the Pateks and Texas polka from the polka bands in other parts of the United States.
