Starting tonight, Alex and Tommy (along with Joe for tonight and tomorrow) will be rocking the Hofbräu in Panama City Beach, FL for St Patty’s Day/ Spring Break/ perennial celebration of Oktoberfest through Sunday! If you’re in the neighborhood come on in and get a liter or 3, the best German food on the beach and Polka your brains out. If you’re not here, the weather seems to be thawing up north enough to escape now!
After PCB, Alex will be conducting some educational clinics in an elementary school in Pearland, Texas where the illustrious Brian Berlin, music teacher extraordinaire has hundreds of elementary school kids playing accordion. It’s a sight to behold!
Then continuing on into Tomball, TX– where Alex where do a special, unplugged solo concert at Landhaus Nikodemus on Thursday, March 26 to kickoff the Tomball German Festival, where The Alex Meixner Band will be appearing all weekend… Polkabeat.com proudly sponsors the band annually for our first festival appearances of the year. This is a great, intimate festival on the streets of a cool, little town– and it’s completely free admission!
Finally, Alex will have one more solo concert/ clinic in Pasadena, TX on Monday, March 30 for Heritage Arts Productions. Sheila Lee is a wonderful accordion educator in the Houston area and has presented Alex for the past few years– it’s a great little scene. (Psst…the concert portion of the session will be broadcast via a live stream. Stay tuned for details!)
Hope to see y’all out there.
