Leon and his band, The Leon Olsen Show, have been honored multiple times for their high quality entertainment and they are one of La Crosse’s favorite bands for polka and old time dancing. The Minnesota Ballroom Operators Association named the Leon Olsen Show as Band of the Year in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010. Leon was inducted into the World Concertina Congress Hall of Fame in 2012 and the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
