I'm very happy to announce that my latest CD, Happy Polka Day, is a National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame 2017 Nominee for Recording of the Year! My original songs "Happy Polka Day," "A Waltz for Kelby," and "A Waltz for Heather" are also 2017 Nominees for New, Original Song. Winners will be announced at the Polka Hall of Fame Awards Show on Saturday, November 25 at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Cleveland, OH.

To say that I'm thrilled would be a tremendous understatement. Of all the CDs I've released, this is the one I put the most work into. From the music to the cover, to the liner notes inside, Happy Polka Day is a special tribute to my parents, both of whom passed away during the lengthy production process. It was my parents who set the series of many a happy polka day in motion for me, which has turned into the incredible blessing of a family-supporting career. In their honor, I'm posting a full-length version of my original song, "Happy Polka Day," on the Music page of my website. Just click the song title and listen or download away! Whether you're a voting member of the Polka Hall of Fame or an avid polka music fan, I hope you'll enjoy what you hear! If you fall into the voting group and enjoy the original song and samples of other music from my album, please keep Happy Polka Day in mind when casting your ballot!

Many, many thanks to the Polka Hall of Fame for their support of my music through these nominations, and to Don Hunjadi and Jim Thull for all the work they put into the project!

And I would be remiss without mentioning that you can pickup a copy of Happy Polka Day straight from the Music page, or at one of the many places we'll be performing the rest of this summer and fall. Just check out the Schedule page for more information..
