  JERRY INTIHAR of Johnstown, Pennsylvania has been playing polka music for 55 years. He was born in Johnstown to Slovenianl Croatian parents, Louis and Mary Intihar. Jerry began accordion lessons at age 8 and within 6 months was playing at local school, church and Slovene lodge functions. At age 13 he began playing in a group called the "Slovene Polka Chaps" and at age 15 joined the "Harmony Tunes", a Polish-style polka band. In 1960 Jerry joined the "Eddie and the Slovenes" band which traveled around the country playing at many ethnic functions. He also formed a trio to play local engagements when not booked with Eddie.

In 1972 Jerry formed his present group, "THE JERRY INTIHAR BAND", and has been entertaining at clubs, weddings, festivals and picnics throughout the country. Although primary a Slovenian-style group, they are recognized for representing a variety of ethnic music -- Slovenian, Croatian, Polish, German, Italian, Slovak and others. Country, popular, oldies and rock selections are also featured at some performances.
