Greetings for the month of May! I'm starting to gear up for the busy summer season ahead. Like I mentioned last month, come help us kickoff our summer at two special events June 4 and 5. Saturday, June 4 will be my first appearance with my band at Estabrook Park in Milwaukee. We'll be there from 5:00-8:00 p.m. It's a great family-friendly venue with good food and drink. If you're not a beer connoisseur, be sure to check out there Point root beer on tap - it's pretty good!

The next day Sunday, June 5, we'll be playing our 21st year at St. Aloysius Parish. Whether you've made it to all 21 or this will be your very first, I look forward to seeing you there! We'll be doing their Polka Mass again, as well. All the details are available on the Schedule page.

Later in June, join us for our second year at Luther Memorial Chapel in Shorewood for their church picnic. We had a great time there last year with their very welcoming congregation and guests. It's open to the public, so I hope to see you there this year, as well!

And almost no summer would be complete without our nearly annual stop in West Allis for their Concert in the Park, this year on Thursday, June 30 (coincidentally, that would have been my Mom's 73rd birthday). Join us there from 7:00-8:30 PM.

I recently decommissioned (a term my wife thinks should be reserved for space shuttles) my 2003 Honda Odyssey with over 331,000 miles on it, which coincidentally is around the distance from here to the moon. Time for something newer! I got a 2014 Odyssey this time around just in time for my summer travels. In June, I'll be driving to shows in northern Wisconsin the first week; Indiana, Kentucky and Georgia the second week; Minnesota the third week, and then Iowa and Wisconsin the last week. I bought my van with just over 6,500 miles on it and will likely need new tires by the time the year is up. Whew! Get all the details regarding all of my up coming Pint Size Polkas performances on the Events page at Hope to see you at a library near you soon!

So last month I mentioned I'm working on a new recording, and that a summer release was a good possibility. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be ready to go before I leave for the summer, but have high hopes for an early fall release. Maybe even late summer. Don Hunjadi is working on his sax, flute and clarinet parts now (maybe even trumpet, too!). Be sure to join my Facebook page here as I hope to post another preview shortly. And stay tuned here for details of its release!

As always, be sure to join our growing list of fans on Facebook here, or for Pint Size Polkas here. Once you’re there, click the Like button at the top of the page.

That's all for this month. See you soon!
