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 your community!

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 Events page for the most up-to-date listings and Google Map directions.

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
