ALOYSIUS PARISH PICNIC IS ON!
One of the big surprises is that St. Aloysius will be doing
a Parish picnic after all this coming June, marking our 21st
year in a row there. The tradition continues thanks to some
hard-working and dedicated parish members. Be sure to stop
by on Sunday, June 5 to enjoy the music and food, and to say
thanks to the fine folks at St. Al's! We'll be doing the
Polka Mass again starting at 10:30 a.m., followed by music
in the tent until 3:00 p.m. Hope to see you there!
MILWAUKEE BEER GARDENS
Next month, join me for the first of two dates I'll be doing
at the Humboldt Park Beer Garden on May 21. In June Iíll be
back at Estabrook Park with my band on June 4 starting at
5:00 PM. Both venues provide a relaxing, family-friendly
atmosphere that youíre sure to enjoy!
On the Pint Size Polkas front, you can catch my
program at the Verona Public Library next week Tuesday,
April 26 starting at 6:30 p.m. This is part of a special
series running now at libraries in Dane County. Be sure to
stop by and support this effort to promote the traditions of
polka music in Wisconsin!
Next month will also mark our
return to Pizza, Polkas and Preschool Art in the Park in
Waukesha at the newly renovated Les Paul Performance Center
at Cutler Park. We start there at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May
24. I understand the old band shell has received a
significant upgrade, so I'm looking forward to having the
chance to revisit this favorite old venue again with Pint
Between June, July and August
Iíll be visiting 10 states throughout the Midwest, East
Coast and Southeast, doing more than 100 shows. Itís going
to be another great summer for Pint Size Polkas!
MIKE SCHNEIDER BAND RECORDING
I'm happy to report after a hiatus of several
years, progress continues in a big way on my new Mike
Schneider Band CD. The aim at this point is for a summer
release. Stay tuned - it should be a winner!
