These Clarinet and Accordion Guys have been Wisconsin musicians since they were teenagers. They first met each other in 2005 to provide music for a wedding reception, then again went their separate ways playing music in their own musical groups. But in 2015 they became re-acquainted to perform a Polka Mass at a church. One of the tunes they arranged for that Service was Just A Closer Walk With Thee, in Polka style! Entertainment for nearly any event. Clarinet + accordion = awesome! Check out these musicians as they serenade crowds with songs of yesteryear. Get ready to sing and clap along. The hotest, most sought after, duet in Wisconsin. We know live music and can help you, within your budget, while exceeding your expectations.

Rich Regent, clarinetist, is known for his beautiful tone, whether he is working with Dixieland bands or at the Milwaukee Public Market, performing show tunes in a pit orchestra, or entertaining as a soloist expressing and embellishing songs of faith in a church. He also performs with the Dixie Doodlers since 2002 and recently added to the Boubon Street Stompers, and plays the recorder. More about Rich Regent.

John Dudzik, accordionist and vocalist, can perform just about any tune. With his Roland electronic transposing accordion, he can create the realistic sounds of most musical instruments, in any key. John sings in Polish, German, Croatian and English. He has his own group The Fanfares and is an active member of the Milwaukee Accordion Club.
