Mitch Polzak & The Royal Deuces were founded in Northern California in 1999, and have been entertaining audiences worldwide with their highly original sound and show ever since. The three-piece band, fronted by Polzak on guitar, vocals, and five string banjo play a wide representation of American Roots Music from Rockabilly to Honky Tonk. Polzak’s incredible showmanship and ability to connect with his audiences as well as his diverse background in multiple genres (including Cajun, Bluegrass and Surf), contribute to what makes his sound and show so unique. Polzak truly extends an invitation for connection on every show!

The music continues in 2020 despite the temporary closing of live venues and festivals. With the shelter in place order, our live shows are currently canceled until further notice but we are bringing you TWO WEEKLY online shows called "LIVE FROM THE POLZAK PONDEROSA!" every Friday from 6:00PM - 9:00PM PST and "BANJO BONANZA!" every Tuesday at 7:00PM PST streamed live from Facebook on the Mitch Polzak profile page.
Please tune in and tell your friends about this one-man show where Mitch performs a wide variety of songs and requests in real time! The musical adventures are amazing and the Jerk Free Zone community that is building on these online shows is incredible! Truly an invitation for connection. We may be isolated, but we’re not alone!
Long live live music!!! Your support and enthusiasm for professional live music is more important now than ever! A BIG thanks to all of you who are involved in that support on a weekly basis! Other exciting news is the creation of the Mitch Polzak YouTube channel, where we upload highlights from the livestream shows, behind the scenes moments, and short instructional videos.
