Bolingbrook resident honored for lifetime Polka achievements
BOLINGBROOK – Just days before his 65th birthday, John Furmaniak stood at the International Polka Association’s Hall of Fame and Music awards banquet podium, addressing the crowd in Independence, Ohio.
One of two living musicians inducted into the Polka Hall of Fame this year, Furmaniak, a Bolingbrook resident of 26 years, said he was honored to receive the esteemed designation.
“To whom much is given, much is expected,” Furmaniak said during his induction speech. “As I look down the list of names, it is very humbling yet rewarding to realize that I will join this group for the rest of eternity. Also, I want to take this time to thank all the Polka fans; without you, there is no us.”
