Thanks, Texas! New “Why Die Thirsty” Shirts!

New Braunfels Prince DeclarationThank you to the great people of New Braunfels! I was greatly honored by the Chamber of Commerce on Monday, when I was given the decree of “Prince of the City of Princes”. It is so fulfilling to be able to share the joy of music with y’all! I always look forward to returning and spreading the word about the awesome city and people! As always, the full house at the Brauntex was a wonderfully receptive audience– y’all sure know how to party for Fat Tuesday!!

Thanks as well to all the peeps that came out to the Houston and Ennis gigs. It was great fun getting out there and playing some good ol’ Czech polkas and waltzes as well as our more regular repertoire. The band and I are all looking forward to making these annual stops and building up the word that Polkas rock, swing and boogaloo a good time in addition to keeping the happy, snappy beat of our predecessors solid!

Speaking of return engagements– We’ll be at the German American Society of Central Florida in Casselberry on Saturday night (Feb 21) for a dance. I’ve been playing at this club since I was in high school– so it’s always nice to play at this cozy club with a great kitchen and bar. A great dancing crowd always shows up here!

Why Die Thirsty T-Shirt Front

Besides the gigs– check out the online store! We have our brand new “Why Die Thirsty” t-shirts available as well as some other new (or returning stuff)– In addition to CDs by my good friends, Michael Bridge, Brave Combo and Polka Family– we’ve also gotten some re-stock on “Polka Freak Out”– my Grammy nominated CDS with Bubba Hernandez. It had been awhile since I’ve listened to the album but the other day, as I was driving I had it on and really enjoyed the repertoire all over again, as well as reminiscing about some great times during the recording of that project- and the ensuing gigs and touring.

Of course- the latest album- “Happiness is a Choice” is available as a CD and download– as well as on t-shirt and hat pin. (Isn’t my daughter Zoey’s artwork cool?!? )

It’s a pretty exciting year already– I’m so grateful for all of y’all supporting my music and for choosing happiness!
