About the speaker

Myron Deputat grew up in Clarence NY, and has been playing music since the age of 5. Over the years he has performed in a number of ensembles, both classical and contemporary. In 1998 he formed a local rock band called “Those Idiots”. In 2001 his group was asked to play at the Adam Mickiewicz Library on the east side of Buffalo for their traditional Dyngus Day celebration. At that performance, the group adopted playing contemporary songs in the style of polka music. The band became an instant hit with audiences both young and old, and has been instrumental in helping to revive Dyngus Day celebrations in Buffalo. Myron continues to develop his skills as a musician, songwriter, producer, and engineer thereby expanding his outlets for creative endeavors.
