Videos: Frankie Yankovic with Joey Miskulin in Melbourne, 1986


This footage of one of Frankie Yankovic's and Joey Miskulin's Australian concerts in October 1986 (held at the Slovenian Association 'Planica' Springvale in Victoria Australia) was filmed by Matt Cestnik.

Any additional information or videos of such music/cultural events in Victoria are very welcome.

This was the first and unfortunately only Australian tour of Frankie Yankovic, and the second for Tony Petkovsek, 'polka ambassador' and radio host in Cleveland, who organized both tours.
I hope these video clips will be of interest and entertainment to some people:

Beginning of the concert - "Oj Maricka peglaj"

Slovenian waltz medley

Million seller hit of Yankovic's "Just Because"

Chicken dance & Shoemaker's dance (Vleči vleči dreto)

Blue skirt waltz

Cez tri gore/Over three hills

Ja sem sirota & Zaplula je barcica moja

Moja baba je pijana (My wife is drunk polka)

Additional footage I obtained of another Yankovic appearance, this time without Miskulin:
