HAPPY "I LOVE TO READ MONTH!"
Greetings and happy "I Love to Read Month!"
Before I started doing my library program in 2009, I wasn't
even aware there was such an event, I'm sad to say.
Likewise, I have a feeling at least a few librarians weren't
aware that last month was National Polka Month prior to my
emergence on the children's performers’ scene. Both are now
important occasions in my life to celebrate, and I hope
you're doing the same in your community!
PINT SIZE POLKAS
I'm happy to report this month that I'm closing in quickly
on another summer with more than 100 bookings. Confirmed
trips include stops in IA, IL, IN, KY, OH, MN, NC, VA, and
WI for Pint Size Polkas, plus my first performance in the
state of Maryland. Considering all the behind the scenes ups
and downs my family and I have endured over the past 16
months, I am so grateful to all the librarians, patrons, and
event planners who have made all these bookings possible.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you soon! Get all

THE MIKE SCHNEIDER BAND
Fans of the Mike Schneider Band will be glad to hear that
more good news has come along since last month, namely
commitments to perform for Triglav Park and Our Lady of
Lourdes Parish Festival in Milwaukee in August, and Oak
Creek Lions Fest in September. We’ll also be making our
first ever appearance in St. Germain for their Pig in the
Pines event on Friday, August 5. I love bacon, so that event
should be a good fit! And Oktoberfest season work is already
starting to come in, and will likely include a return visit
to SWARMM Entertainment's annual event this October in
Downtown Milwaukee, among numerous others that are sure to
Next month, a new venue is opening its doors to polka music
in Theresa, WI, namely Gramma Net’s Grub & Pub (formerly
Theresa Lodge). Plan to be there for our inaugural dance!
It's not often I make it to that part of the State with my
band, and am looking forward to doing so on Sunday, March 6
from 2:00-6:00 PM. See you there! Get all the details on
