Scheduled Act: Surprise Pops

The Surprise Pops Band had its origins as a small group of six to eight musicians who gathered in a garage to play music. They were organized in 1976-77 as the Sun City Polka Band by Clancy Wolf. Over the years the band has grown, and today has nearly 100 members and plays free concerts to thousands of West Valley audiences every season.

Over the years the band has changed names and became the Surprise Pops Band when it became associated with the city of Surprise. Members of the band come from all walks of life including retired music educators and music professionals. Others are music lovers who enjoy playing while in retirement.

Selections for the Spring Show will be a potpourri of the musicians’ favorites.
