By the mid ’70s, the band officially became the Salt City Brass and began touring beyond Central New York.
Its music is a mix of traditional Polish favorites and original songs by Klocek.
Songs in the bands repertoire include The Green Grass Polka, Pukaj Jasiu Polka, Hey Cavalier Polka, The Mother Waltz, Wishing Well Polka, Hu La La Polka, Helena Polka and the always popular La Di Da Oberek.
In addition to the Salt City Brass, the dance will include a limited Polish and American food menu and Polka dancing.

Proceeds will be designated to the Polish Home Building Fund.
