CNY novelty act finds its way into acclaimed show

A local polka band had a glimpse of the big time when it found its way into the acclaimed AMC series “Breaking Bad.”
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A local polka band had a glimpse of the big time when it found its way into the acclaimed AMC series “Breaking Bad.”

The Verona act – Fritz’s Polka Band – recently visited Bridge Street and disclosed their appearance in season 4. If you blink, you might miss them. But Fritz Scherz confirmed that they’re there.

"You can watch, the guy's watching TV And he happens to be watching Fritz's Polka band, on his TV,” Scherz said.

A band performance was recorded for a show in Buffalo in 2009, but it never aired.

The producers for “Breaking Bad,” however, tracked it down and installed it in the season 4 finale.

"Well it's probably the closest I'll ever get to fame in my entire life,” said band member Gabe Vaccaro.

More information on Fritz’s Polka Band is available on their website.
