Musician. Producer. Beatsmith. Recording artist. Composer. Dance-floor general. Label-head. A mystery man of many hats, The Polish Ambassador rocks more than just a trademark jumpsuit, authoring sublime, intentional artistic works, animated safaris in technicolor sound. At first breath, The Polish Ambassador was an experiment, David Sugalski’s sound-art passion project that came to life. An inventive, imaginary character born of humble, humorous beginnings, he found his first audiences through the support of primitive digital radio stations. Today, TPA is among the premier EDM/live crossover artists in the country with millions of listeners around the world; he’s consistently in-demand at the live music-focused gatherings and boutique electronic festivals from coast to coast. Founder of independent label Jumpsuit Records, an environmentalist and early progenitor of the permaculture action movement, the world’s funkiest diplomat is here to party with a purpose.

    It will be my first new years in Oregon, I want to do something memorable.

    The polish ambassador has been the only artist that got me to feel better when I struggled with really bad depression. I wanted to see them live in 2020 but then the world shut down. It would be incredible to see and celebrate NYE with them live.

    My partner and I don’t have plans yet, but this sounds like a blast!

  4. Emily Wilks on December 7, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    I’d love some free tix!!!

  5. Juan Rosado on December 7, 2021 at 12:59 pm

    Would love to win so I can dance!

  6. James on December 7, 2021 at 1:26 pm

  7. Jake on December 7, 2021 at 2:18 pm

    I have no plans for New Years yet, may this be one?! Who knows!

  8. Camille Saenz on December 7, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    I havent seen Polish in almost 7 years, this would be a great excuse to get myself out of a slump and go out to do something fun with my partner (our first NYE together and close to out 1 year anniversary).

    Wanna win it for my daughter. She’s a single mom of a new baby, just moved to Oregon, hasn’t made friends here yet,and hasnt had a chance to experience anything fun in Portland. It would really help pick her spirit up back out of the dust.

  15. Tiff on December 9, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    My boyfriend & I have a 2 1/2 year old – every year we haven’t done much because being a parent is always top priority & it can take a lot out of your pocket!
    This would be something so awesome for us as a job well done! 🙂

  16. Justin Isla on December 9, 2021 at 4:56 pm

    NYE at the Crystal sounds amazing!

  18. Lena on December 10, 2021 at 4:58 pm

    I’d be so grateful to attend because I haven’t seen much live music since Covid and I know PA would be lit! Last time I saw them was 2017. Thanks and it’d also be fun to win because moneys been tight since covid too

  19. Lindsey Salzer on December 11, 2021 at 12:02 am

    My middle brother of the three of them died in December and I miss him so. Thete is a big age difference between us and he introduced me to music at a young age. I’d like to honor him by going to this. If he was alive I think he would love this concert.

  26. Justin Isla on December 16, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    I would love to go to this!

  27. Jill on December 17, 2021 at 6:29 am

    “Get down, get funky, get loose!”

  28. Ryan on December 18, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Currently have no plans and I’ll be alone for New Year’s, but seeing The Polish Ambassador at the Crystal Ballroom would be an epic chance to make new friends for the new year!

  29. Jason on December 19, 2021 at 4:58 pm

    Yes! I love the Polish Ambassador and will not stop dancing the entire night I promise!!!

  34. Aimee Mattson on December 21, 2021 at 1:59 pm

    Polish Ambassador is the best ! Whenever I hear his music, I am taken to a place of pure joy, peace and tranquility. The absolute brilliance that is heard in the music he creates is beyond amazing. The opportunity to see him live would be a beautiful ending to a shit 1.5 years (thanks Covid !!). Winning these tickets will not only bring a smile to my face but to my partners as well. And he just had shoulder surgery 1 week ago so he can use a pick me up! 🙂

  35. Calley Van Kirk on December 21, 2021 at 2:16 pm

    It is my first New Years in Portland and this event seems like it would be doing it right!!

  36. Teena Winski on December 21, 2021 at 4:18 pm

    Happy New Years to me!!!

  37. N.Williams on December 22, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    Would absolutely love to experience a Polish Ambassador New Years Eve party!! Plus I have the most amazing outfit I must show off! 🥳 🎉 😍

  38. Vanessa Smith on December 22, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    I moved here during the pandemic to be closer to my boyfriend but we haven’t had the chance to see a live concert together yet due to many shows being cancelled. This would fulfill that opportunity!

  39. Brittany on December 23, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Would love to win these tickets for me and my fiance! Crossing our fingers! 🙂

  40. Bo K Erickson on December 23, 2021 at 3:21 pm

    My boyfriend and I just want to party down for new years!

  41. Justin Isla on December 23, 2021 at 3:58 pm

    Would love to welcome the New Years listening to TPA

  45. Michael Scasny on December 28, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Could really use some NYE fun after the last year. Please and thank you.

  46. Lora Tova Davis on September 20, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    This would be the show of my choice in the city I love! I have spent the last two years healing from a terrifying car accident that left me in constant pain in my knees and ankles. For almost a year
    I couldn’t walk besides a bad head injury. My you youngest son, who is 33 now, took care of me 24/7. After the last two years in rehab I can dance and bike and ski, my doctors all said it was a miracle I even lived thru the high speed car accident. My son turned me into Polish Ambassador and I have seen them twice in Colorado. They were two of the best nights of my life! The loving energy and amazing music of these shows just blow my mind. I would love to surprise my son and get these tix so I can son to this show as part of my deepest appreciation. I am beyond grateful that I can dance and celebrate life again. Thank you for considering gifting us these tickets!!!

  47. Jeremy on December 7, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I don’t live here, but I’m visiting my special lady friend, and I’d like to surprise her with tickets and a sweaty night of Polish dancing!!
