NORTH BEND – Old Settlers 2022 is playing your jam.

Due to popular request, this year’s Old Settlers weekend is going to feature a ton of live music, with bands playing in the park all the three nights of the weekend.

Polka fans will get a chance to Czech out Angie Kriz and the PolkaTunes late Friday afternoon of Old Settlers.

All bands will play in the beer garden on the tennis courts on the north end of the city park and will be open to all ages with no cover.

On Friday, June 25, afternoon, Old Settlers welcomes back the Angie Kriz and the Polkatoons. She and the boys will be playing your favorite polka tunes to kick off the weekend at 4:30.

Following the Polkatoons at about 6:30 will be the groovy tunes of Mojo Filter out of Lincoln. They’ll be playing rock hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s by bands such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash and more.

As the Old Settlers road run is wrapping up Saturday morning, Jimmy and Mandy will take the stage to 10 a.m. to entertain the post-race crowd until 1 p.m.

Later on Saturday Charm School Dropouts will be rocking from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Charm School Dropouts will bring out the hits from the ‘80s and ‘90s into the early 2000s, including music by bands like Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, Sublime, Weezer, Justin Timberlake, Blink 182 and more.

The Fishheads bring their island sound and
party music to Old Settlers Sunday.

Early Sunday evening will feature a veteran band of the regional circuit, the Fishheads, which bills itself “the official party band of summer.”

The Omaha band focuses on party music that the crowd can sing along to, covering all genres from island music and rock to funk and reggae. The audience will hear tunes from artists as diverse as Bob Marley, Kenny Chesney, Black Crowes and Jimmy Eat World.

The Fishheads will take the stage at 4:30 p.m., around the time the water fights are wrapping up, and play to 8:30.
