We can all say that again, right? Crazy Times!!
I only hope that everyone out there is staying safe and responsible and are in turn healthy and happy. I think we're all struggling in a myriad of ways with the changes in our day to day lives and a desire to have some sort of control or return to our normalcy, let alone the disruptions in our work and worry about how to pay for food, housing and medical care for many of us. That aside, I am thankful that I am able to continue making music that is lifting our spirits and that many of you are able to continue supporting my work with tips when I play your favorite songs on live streams or by purchasing the merch in the online store. I am especially thankful that my family is healthy and we are all working to do our best to stay that way and continue choosing happiness in our lives!
With all that said, obviously many gigs are continuing to be canceled, and that is very difficult for me, but I'm almost busier than ever at home working on new music. I hope everyone is prepared to check out some new stuff soon. I also am working on some new productions and collaborations that will hopefully be very entertaining. I hope you're keeping up with the social media accounts and encouraging your friends, relatives, and even your enemies to sign up for the email list and social media sites. Heck, we can all agree to disagree on politics and the fine points of just about anything else in the world, but a few polkas or other strains of the accordion can hopefully bring a smile right?
I'm taking this weekend off from a new live stream as I'm catching up with new accordion students and some private zoom parties, but will have a new live stream on Wed May 13 at 7pm eastern (6pm central). I'll be all ready to take your requests and present some new music from my house to yours.
If you're looking for supplies, The Alex Meixner Band baseball cap is back in stock. What better way to contain your uncut hair than with our hat?!?
Stay well and Polka On! Catch ya soon!!
We'll have some new YouTube videos coming this week too!!
