HAPPY "I LOVE
TO READ MONTH!"
Greetings and happy "I Love to Read Month!" Before I started doing my
library program in 2009, I wasn't even aware there was such an event,
I'm sad to say. Likewise, I have a feeling at least a few librarians
weren't aware that last month was National Polka Month prior to my
emergence on the children's performers’ scene. Both are now important
occasions in my life to celebrate, and I hope you're doing the same in
PINT SIZE POLKAS
I'm happy to report this month that I'm closing in quickly on another
summer with more than 100 bookings. Confirmed trips include stops in
IA, IL, IN, KY, OH, MN, NC, VA, and WI for Pint Size Polkas, plus my
first performance in the state of Maryland. Considering all the behind
the scenes ups and downs my family and I have endured over the past 16
months, I am so grateful to all the librarians, patrons, and event
planners who have made all these bookings possible. Thank you, and I
look forward to seeing you soon! Get all the details on the

THE MIKE SCHNEIDER
Fans of the Mike Schneider Band will be glad to hear that more good
news has come along since last month, namely commitments to perform
for Triglav Park and Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Festival in Milwaukee
in August, and Oak Creek Lions Fest in September. We’ll also be making
our first ever appearance in St. Germain for their Pig in the Pines
event on Friday, August 5. I love bacon, so that event should be a
good fit! And Oktoberfest season work is already starting to come in,
and will likely include a return visit to SWARMM Entertainment's
annual event this October in Downtown Milwaukee, among numerous others
that are sure to come in.
Next month, a new
venue is opening its doors to polka music in Theresa, WI, namely
Gramma Net’s Grub & Pub (formerly Theresa Lodge). Plan to be there for
our inaugural dance! It's not often I make it to that part of the
State with my band, and am looking forward to doing so on Sunday,
March 6 from 2:00-6:00 PM. See you there! Get all the details on this
performance and many others on the Schedule page at
