It was great to return to one of my old favorite venues, the Festhalle in Helen, GA for Oktoberfest last night. I’m performing through Sunday with super drummer Ed Klancnik, my dueling partner in the Alex Meixner Duo. Despite a fairly dreary weather forecast of rain, rain and more rain—the faithful gang came out to enjoy some old school German favorites and other stuff with my Duo, as well as our new friends from Cincinnati—Pros’t! Between our 2 groups, we’re able to play just about any kind of dance music… it’s a lot of fun—so if you’re in the area of northeast Georgia (or in the mood for a beautiful road trip through the mountains)—c’mon by! There have already been some pretty cool jams between our groups on everything from “Oktoberfest Chestnuts” to “Mustang Sally” and “Play that Alpenmusik Kraut Boy”—and well you can just imagine the good time… Hope to see ya tonight, tomorrow and Sunday!
Hopefully some pictures will be coming soon….
