Happy Birthday to our Beloved Founder and Captain

JOSEPH A. FERKO

April 1, 1895

As we celebrate Captain Joe's birthday, we invite you to visit our MUSIC & MEDIA page for free and unlimited listening to what is referred to as “The Happiest Music In The World".

These recordings, played throughout the years by The Ferko String Band, are some of the very same music Captain Joe danced to, just for YOU!
