"The Brighton Park Connection started as a group of friends from diverse professional backgrounds, who beginning in the fall of 2004, occasionally gathered together at Ed Ptaszek's house to socialize and share their common joy of playing polka music. Influenced by their association with the late Don Lucki (Polka Hall of Fame trumpet player) they especially enjoyed playing his charts for polka and pop tunes.

This unique group is probably the only polka band that can lay claim to having tow brother Jesuit priests as members of the band. The common connection of having attended the same grammar school on the Southwest Side of Chicago in the Brighton Park area of the city—is how they derived their name."
~Ed Ptaszek
