So far Ive done 107 shows this summer in CO, IA, IL, KS, MN, NE, NM, OK, and TX, and still have about 45 shows to go in CO, IA, MI, MN, and WI. Check out the schedule at the bottom for details, or visit the Events page at for more information. Its been an awesome summer to say the least! Although with all the bookings, I havent had quite as much time for golf as I have some summers, but thats a good problem! I am so grateful to the many librarians who have brought me in to their libraries either as a returning performer or for the first time, and to the hundreds of patrons who have taken time out of their days to give their kids a chance to hear polka music for the very first time in the majority of cases. If youd like to see Pint Size Polkas at a library near you, please let your local librarian know Ill gladly travel anywhere in the lower 48!

When I get back home next month, Ill get back in action with the band again at numerous festivals, beer gardens and concerts. After that, its a mad dash through the busy Oktoberfest season. Check out the Schedule page for details on all of our public events, including some longtime returning favorites in Hustisford, Oak Creek, and at St. Gregs in Milwaukee, as well as some new venues like Blessed Sacrament in Madison and St. Joes in Wauwatosa. Looking forward to a great late summer and fall ahead! Need a map or directions to any of the events listed below? Just head over to the Schedule page.

Ive been talking about this for years, but Ive finally made some progress this summer on writing several original songs for a forthcoming Christmas CD and digital release Ive been planning for quite awhile now. It wont be ready for this coming Holiday season, but hopefully Ill be able to make some progress in the studio with arrangements and recording during my off season. Stay tuned for details!

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

That's all for this month. Hope to see you soon!
