Patrola Šlapeto is a band of Czech folk and cabaret music formed in 2005 by Radan Dolejš (a long-time leader of the former band Šlapeto, active since 1989[1]) and Karel Hoza (a long-time leader of the band "Pražský pouťový a promenádní orchestr").

It was set up as a "Šlapeto Revival Band" of the same style of Czech pub and music hall/cabaret songs known as the "Old Prague songs" (staropražské písničky) epitomized by Karel Hašler.[2][3]

The lineup of both bands varied over time.

The band Šlapeto (1989-2005) was established by Radan Dolejš (guitar), Jiří Pánek (double bass) and Ivo Zelenka (accordion), soon expanded with other members.[4]

Around 2000 Dolejš parted with Šlapeto. In an interview he explained the decision that whey played only old songs, and there are only so many of them, especially good ones, not enough to produce albums every year.. After some time together with Robert Papoušek he created the band Patrola. The success of the album dedicated to the 125th anniversary of Karel Hašler allowed the two bands to continue, by joining the forces.[5]

The band Šlapeto was three times recipient of the Annual Czechoslovak music awards (now Anděl Awards) in 1996 (Česká Gramy), 1997 (Výroční hudební cena) and 1998 (Akademie populární hudby) in the category of folk and wind music. It also issued 4 golden records.[6]
