(Verona, NY – Sept. 2012) Fritz’s Polka Band (FPB) from Verona has been nominated for two Upper State Independent (USI) Awards. FPB is nominated in the Entertainment Group category as well as the International category.

This year’s award show will be at 7pm on Oct. 13 at The Palace Theatre, 19 Utica Street in Hamilton.

“We were excited to win an Upper State Independent Award in 2008 and 2009 in the International Category, and are thrilled to get nominated in two categories this year,” said Fritz Scherz, bandleader of FPB.  “Our win in 2009 was extra special, as it occurred one week before my Dad (Fred Scherz Sr.) passed away. We’re truly appreciative of being nominated, and want to thank our great fans, djs, music critics, the media for supporting us over the years, and of course, our sponsor, Jagermeister. Thank you very much!”
