On the Mike Schneider Band front, I am extremely happy to

up to be some of our busiest months in recent memory.

Chicago, Muskego Community Festival, and the Walworth County
Fair. Looking forward to performing at these new venues, and
hope that youíll join us!

For Pint Size Polkas, Iím looking forward to wrapping up my
summer tour with programs in the Washington, DC area this
week, then heading into WV and OH briefly the beginning of
August to wrap up my big summer tour. Between the beginning
of June and the end of next month, I will have put on around
125 programs from as far west as Gallup, NM, to as far east
as Washington, DC. Itís been an amazing summer, and Iím
already excited about the prospects of 2018! Hope to see you
soon at a library near you!
