We had beautiful weather, high rivers and rain all in the course of 3 days– but rocked some really cool gigs that were all over the board this past weekend. The boys and I are settling into the studio for 2 days before we head to Estabrook Beer Garden on Wednesday, July 15 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It’s a FREE early show, 5-8pm… so c’mon over after work and party for a bit.
Thursday, July 16 is a really special one– Superior, Wisconsin’s Harrington Arts Center/ Accordion Museum is a cultural treasure that many people, even within our scene aren’t familiar with. Come for the concert and make a point to visit and get to speak with Dr. Helmi Harrington sometime. You won’t find a more sincere individual with that breadth of knowledge regarding all kinds of accordions and music… Truly a remarkable person and organization.
Friday-Saturday-Sunday, July 17-19, mark the return of The Alex Meixner Band to Bavarian Blast in New Ulm, Minnesota. Good ol’ German hospitality, food, beer and fun — a fun time in the original Polka capital of the USA. We’ll be pre-releasing a new CD celebrating the musical heritage of the area with the Vitak-Elsnic All Star Band… More online info on the “Then and Now” CD will be coming soon!
