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.
For all concerts except the Kenny Loggins* concert: Free admission. Open lawn seating on lawn chairs and blankets. Picnics, snacks and coolers with beverages are allowed, including beer and wine, but no glass containers, please. Concessions are available at the pavilion, including burgers, veggie burgers, Irish nachos, chicken and quesadillas, beer and wine from J.
