At the risk of making it sound like the boys and I have just been sitting back at home (which couldn’t be farther from the truth, as I’ve been writing music, recording and running with my kiddos!), the road is calling the Alex Meixner Band back for some new adventures!
Friday and Saturday, April 28-29, we’ll be doing the opening of the brand new Bavarian Bierhaus in Nashville, TN. I toured the facility a few months ago during the building of it- and I just have to say it’s awesome!! I can’t wait to have the band performing there! Anyone in the area should come on over and check out the new venue– they’re getting all the details right from the chef and beer selections to the beautiful mural- and of course procuring a lot of great entertainment. I’m proud to be coordinating entertainment through my AM Management Company (as I do for biergartens, special events and festivals throughout the USA).
Sunday, April 30 brings us back to our friends Ken and Barbara Leonard, and all of their crew out in Waterloo, IL at the Acorns Golf Links for our annual appearance. These are super cool people who are inviting to any of friends and fans– so if you’re close, call or email Ken and Barbara and we hope to see ya there…
Tuesday, May 2 has Ed and me, playing for the first time in Champaign, IL for a “Midweek Maifest” to benefit the Developmental Services Center. Tickets are only $10 at the door!! We’re excited to be part of this great evening- and again hope to see ya there!!
Finally– there’s some new additions to the store on www.alexmeixner.com. I’m really excited to announce the release of a new CD by my good friend Ron Oswanski and his rocking Bavarski band from New Jersey. Some of the best NYC/ Jersey musicians have come together to jazz, rock and polka on their premier “Born to Polka” album. I sang “Aus Bohmen Kommt die Musik” on the album- and hope y’all enjoy it.
Also, we finally have the Alex Meixner Polka Pilsener “Why Die Thirsty” shirts available on the site. Come check out everything from the current CDs/ DVD to my guest collaborations and pins, stickers and tattoos… Everything you need to choose and spread happiness with the Alex Meixner Band.
Hope to see y’all soon!! alex
