ZACH NOVAK, CHARLIE BARTOS and DENNIS TOUSEK Zach is 17 years old and loves Czech music. Just give him a keyboard or an accordion and he will show you just how much. Playing music makes him happy but things have not always been easy for him. Zach has overcome many obstacles. He does not read a note of music so sometimes his playing sounds are a little different than everyone else’s. Zach has played as a special guest with Charlie and Dennis with their band the Incredible Music Makers and also in the Czhilispiel Parade. Accompanying Zach will be CHARLIE BARTOS and DENNIS TOUSEK who both love to play the accordion. It was by pure accident that they decided to play their accordions for the Incredible Knockouts at the chili booth at Czhilispiel. This sparked the beginning of the Incredible Music Makers. Charlie is a native of Flatonia, Texas and learned to play the accordion when he was 11 years old. He is mostly self-taught with the exception of a few lessons from his dad, and learned to play by practicing every day. He loves to play polkas, waltzes, and country-western music. Dennis was born and raised in Moulton, Texas, in the vicinity of Cotton Grove. He was 9 years old when his parents purchased an accordion for him to play. He received lessons from the famous Charlie Tousek who had a band around the Moulton area. During his teenage years, Dennis only played for his family, and was even known to play all night long until the sun was coming up. Charlie and Dennis’ dream came true when the Incredible Music Makers band was formed.
