"What better way to celebrate the month of love than with a feature on polka sweethearts Ross and Valina of Das Ist Lustig. This polka power couple seem to have boundless energy when it comes to promoting happy music. And it’s not just through their performances. They share their love of polka with students promoting music and dance through German clubs at Houston-area high schools. Whether you see them as a duo at Rudi Lechner’s in Houston, or as a band at festivals like the upcoming 20th Tomball German Heritage Festival, you will be entertained and leave with a smile on your face and skip in your step. Now, if we could just find a way to harness that energy from Valina’s ponytail, we could make a dent in global warming!"
