Greetings for the month of September! And that of course means Oktoberfest season is right around the corner. August was unusually busy for me with library and band events, and September is even more so with 24 bookings so far! For details on all upcoming Pint Size Polkas shows, please visit the Events page at Highlights include tomorrow's program in Bloomer, Thursday's program in Oglesby (home of "The Root Beer Stand!"), and Friday's two shows at the Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest. Hope to see you at one of them!

For the Mike Schneider Band, we'll be busy in Wisconsin and Illinois this month, including our first performances in Glendale Heights, IL for three days' worth of Oktoberfest fun there! Towards the end of the month I'll be returning for the third straight year to the Milwaukee County Zoo for my annual stay in the monkey cage. Just wanted to be sure you were still reading! While that may be where I belong, I'll be back for their well-attended Zoo Brew event. It's a solo strolling performance, so you never know where you might find me that night! The next day we'll be making our first appearance at Pere Marquette Park for their big annual Oktoberfest doings. Hope to see you there!

In October we'll be making public appearances in Wisconsin and Iowa, including stops at the Marcus Center's Peck Pavilion for their annual Polka Mass and Oktoberfest celebration, plus our first appearance at the Edgewater Hotel in Madison for their Oktoberfest. We'll also be back at SWARMM Events' Milwaukee Oktoberfest, moving this year from Cathedral Square Park to Veterans Park on Downtown Milwaukee's Lakefront, as well as our third appearance in Dubuque, IA for their Octoberfest Polka Festival. Plenty of opportunities coming your way to catch the Mike Schneider Band live and in person - get all the details on the Schedule page!

I'm also happy to report that progress continues on my new recording. I'll try to post another sample from it on my Facebook page at this week. Don Hunjadi is finishing up his parts now, and I'm working on wrapping up my second accordion parts. It's been several years and major life changes in the making, but hopefully for your sake well worth the wait!

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 now. Until next time, find yourself a great spot or two to celebrate Oktoberfest this month and next month. Hope to see you soon!
