Last Hurrah At The Second Fiddle in Chappell Hill Texas

Brian and Chuck normally perform with the Brian Marshall and the Tex-Slavic Playboys band but they showed off their diverse musical talents by playing right along with the McCauley’s. Of course, Brian managed to sing a Polish song or two before the evening was over.

What better way to get into the holiday spirit then to spend an evening listing to great music by well known Polish fiddler Brian Marshall and friends. Brian’s Kolendy in the Country Christmas Party was held at Second Fiddle Bar & Grill in beautiful Chappell Hill Texas on Saturday, December 6th. Second Fiddle is a small, friendly place housed in an old building not far from St. Stanislaus Catholic Church. The bar has lots of character and plenty of piwo. Daniel the chef served up bowls of good cajun etouffee as well as other spicy dishes and hamburgers and Mandy the barmaid kept busy handing out cold beer.

Brian was joined by Dennis Bielamowicz, Kevin Syzdek, Chuck Bolin, Sonny Janczak and Brian Wisnoski. James Mazurkiewicz also sang a song or two with the band. The band played lots of good Polish, country and Christmas music for the crowd. There was plenty of dancing, talking and laughing throughout the evening.
