Mix three cups of German-style polka music with one cup of Czech music, and a half-cup each of country, big band, and party favorites, and you've got a recipe for fun with a band that's really cookin'! That's what you get when you see a live performance featuring Barefoot Becky & the Ivanhoe Dutchmen, a group based out of Mt Vernon, Iowa.
The band, featuring Becky Livermore on accordion and vocals, has been performing throughout the United States since 1988. People remember the band best by two things: Becky's bare feet! She started playing barefoot simply because it was more comfortable than playing with shoes on.
People seemed to think it was pretty funny and have really come to expect it. Now the 'barefoot' motif is on almost everything they have, like their music stands, posters, and custom made mugs and t-shirts.
