Tonight, May 13, the boys and I are returning to a regular stop- Reichenbach Hall in Manhattan at 7pm. Continuing on Thursday, May 14 to Tom Lorch’s infamous Village Lanterne in Lindenhurst on Long Island (Everyone needs to experience Chu’s awesome soups there!) and Friday, the 15th will be a doubleheader with a school presentation before we rock the hill at the Reading Liederkranz!

Hopefully a full night of sleep awaits before our first gig for 2015 at the Pilsener Haus in Hoboken on Saturday and finally the tour will be concluding with the Spring Fest at Allentown, PA’s Maingate on Sunday. A full slate of performers including local students from the Community Music School (where I used to teach!) and William Allen High School– as well as Polka Hall of Famer- Walt Groller, John Stevens, Steve Brosky and Jimmy Meyer will be on hand for the premier of the PA Music Preservation Society (check out my picture on the front page of Allentown’s Morning Call Newspaper  promoting the event! )

Heading North! Cleveland, Baltimore, New York & NJ – May 5-10

As these last flurries of winter threaten, I’m sure everything is getting ready for the full time spring thaw that is ensured by The Alex Meixner Band’s first full northern tour of 2015. The band and I are really excited about some new venues— including our Cinco de Mayo party at the Cleveland Maennerchor and our first Baltimore show at Creative Alliance on May 6 and a special Mother’s Day in Pine Island, NY at the PLAV MayFest (Advance tickets available for purchase online until 4/30.)

German American Social Club in Cape Coral, Florida – April 25th

International NightWith reports of snow (or even threats of snow) still in some of the northern forecasts– I’m glad to have a gig in South Florida this Saturday. The Alex Meixner Band will be returning to the German American Social Club in Cape Coral this Saturday, April 25 for their “International Night”. C’mon over for a fine meal and a great night of dancing to a variety of music.
