I was introduced to Ragtime music through an awesome flute choir piece, so I love it. We played Stoptime Rag, in case anyone else has ever heard of it. It's a lot of fun. But because of that, I love playing Ragtime music.
Polka music is folksy, friendly and festive. What's not to like?
We have a little "tourist trap" town here in Washington state that has a Bavarian theme. It will often have polka bands playing in the town park gazebo. Nobody ever complains...and a lot of motorcycle groups visit there in the summer.
