A big summer lies ahead! I'm very happy to report that this will be my busiest summer since 2019, and may be even busier than that plus a few other years prior! The road trip for Pint Size Polkas starts this Saturday in Iowa City before making my way through Kansas next week. The rest of the month I'll be spending in MI, MN, OH, VA and WI. I will definitely be making people aware of the accordion during National Accordion Awareness Month!

On the traditional polka front, I'll be making a very rare band appearance at Hofbräuhaus Cleveland on Friday, June 16 between library shows in OH. I'll be sharing the stage with two living polka legends, John Pecon, Jr. on drums, and Ron Sluga on banjo. They were kind enough to help me out on a TV spot in Cleveland back in 2009 when I first started Pint Size Polkas, and we finally get to do a full gig together after all these years! A very special thanks to Joey Tomsick for helping make this extra gig possible. Hope to see all my Cleveland area friends at this one-night-only event!

The following Monday, June 19, I'll be doing my Pint Size Polkas program right across the street from the National Cleveland Style Polka Hall of Fame at the Euclid Public Library starting at 2 PM. Euclid is an historic place to the style of polka music I play, and I very much look forward to bringing my family program back there on June 19!

I'll also be doing a special program on the History of Polka Music for adults at the Goodyear Branch of the Akron Public Library on Monday, June 26 at 12:30 PM, so traditional polka fans have that to look forward to, as well!

As always, be sure to visit the Schedule page and the Events page at for details on everywhere I'm playing this month. Can't wait to see all my library and polka friends out on the road!

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 this month. Thanks again and talk to you soon!
