It's been too long since my last update, and has been even
more so "too long" since I was playing gigs at a normal
rate. Thankfully, however, things are about to change for
the better this summer!
Between now and the end of August, I'll be doing 15 virtual
shows and 58 in-person shows, both for Pint Size Polkas and
with my band. Together, it's still a far cry from a normal
summer, but it's a significant step in the right direction!
Oktoberfest season is also shaping up in promising fashion.
Thank you very much for your support during this lean last
year! I'm hoping you'll visit one of the venues below and we
can celebrate the return of live polka music!
PINT SIZE POLKAS
Highlights for Pint Size Polkas include in-person visits
this summer to libraries in CO, IA, IL, IN, KS, MN, WI, and
WY. If youíre not in one of these states, ask your local
library if theyíll be offering a virtual edition of my Pint
Size Polkas program! Hopefully weíll be able to continue
moving forward, and 2022 sees a return to normal booking
volume and fewer scheduling complications! For now, please

details on my schedule in 2021.
THE MIKE SCHNEIDER BAND
If youíre a fan of my band, the really good news for you is,
with Pint Size Polkas having a slower summer, Iíll be around
more for traditional solo and band performances locally! And
the fun starts this afternoon at the Biergarten at Olbrich
Park, where Iíll be playing from 3:30-7:30 PM. You can also
catch Jim Thull and me at Estabrook Park in Milwaukee this
Sunday from 3-6 PM (itís technically Ferd Buchelís gig, so
itís not listed below. Stay tuned to Estabrook Park's
Facebook page for more dates later this summer). As always,

If youíve not been following me on Facebook or YouTube,
youíve missed several dozen weeksí worth of unplugged
performance videos Iíve put together since April 2020. I
plan to continue producing these as my schedule allows
moving forward, even post-COVID. Get caught up by watching
on YouTube and Facebook today!
