Thank you, thank you, thank you, Liederkranz, for bringing Alex Meixner into my life! He’s a madman. On the accordion no less. Imagine polka as punk. He’s your frontman. Total showman. Plays the trumpet with his right hand while handling the bass line with his left on the accordion. Band mate Joe Tierney plays his sax upside down when the tune calls for it.
