There​ are three generations in the band: mother - Sylvia Kupka (Accordion/Vocals), daughter - Shelley Dolter (Saxophone/Violin/Vocals), Sylvia's grandson - Travis (Guitar/Vocals). Rick Sliwkanich (Drums) and Panko Chrunik (Guitar/Vocals/Bass) keep the beat going. Sylvia's granddaughter - Shaelyn (Vocals) also joins in.

The Polka Ramblers have recorded four CDs over the years including their newest album, Generations of Music, featuring Sylvia's grandchildren! ​

The Polka Ramblers play music for all occasions with a mix of Ukrainian, country and rock. Their goal is to have you dancing and singing along as they perform.
