The FreezeDried Experience!

Known throughout Chicagoland to be on the cutting edge, FreezeDried fuses Polish push-style polkas with other music styles such as Latin music, zydeco, gospel music, dixieland music and rock music. 

FreezeDried members currently bringing the FreezeDried Experience to polka and non-polka fans are John Krawisz, Dan Okrzesik Sr., Ted Okrzesik Jr., John Okrzesik Sr., Stephen Kaminski, Andrew Okrzesik, John Okrzesik, Jr., and Austin Kelsch.

The record label of FreezeDried is Chrome Pierogi Recording and is an Indie label.

Since 1998, venues such as the Taste of Chicago, Minnesota State Fair, WGN radio, numerous town summer fests, and an array of local clubs have been enjoying the fresh sounds of the FreezeDried Experience.
