Let’s polka! with everyone’s favorite nuclear polka band
As a crowd-pleaser, you just can’t beat Brave Combo! That’s why the Levitt Pavilion decided during its very first concert season that the popular mosh-pit polka band would become our fall tradition and open each new Fall Concert Series. Describing Brave Combo’s sound requires an extensive vocabulary in musical styles that includes salsa, meringue, rock, cumbia, conjunto, polka, zydeco, classical, cha cha, the blues and more. They have played everything from road houses to New York’s Lincoln Center and even appeared as their animated selves in a Simpsons episode with Springfield’s Oktoberfest celebration. Along the way, they have collected countless followers, avid devotees, two Grammy Awards and seven Grammy nominations, and they have the distinction of being the first musical artists to perform on the Levitt Pavilion Arlington stage for its grand opening night in 2008.
Free admission unless it’s stated that a ticket purchase is required. Open lawn seating on lawn chairs and blankets for all free concerts. For free concerts, picnics, snacks and coolers with beverages are allowed, including beer and wine, but no glass containers, please.
Paid-ticket concerts have different rules. If the concert you’re attending required you to buy a ticket, chairs will be provided for you, concessions will be sold (including beer and wine), and no pets will be allowed on the lawn. Please do not bring chairs, coolers, picnics, beverages or pets to a paid-ticket concert.
