ST. ALOYSIUS PARISH PICNIC IS ON!
One of the big surprises is that St. Aloysius will be doing a Parish
picnic after all this coming June, marking our 21st year in a row
there. The tradition continues thanks to some hard-working and
dedicated parish members. Be sure to stop by on Sunday, June 5 to
enjoy the music and food, and to say thanks to the fine folks at St.
Al's! We'll be doing the Polka Mass again starting at 10:30 a.m.,
followed by music in the tent until 3:00 p.m. Hope to see you there!
Next month, join me for the first of two dates I'll be doing at the
Humboldt Park Beer Garden on May 21. In June Iíll be back at Estabrook
Park with my band on June 4 starting at 5:00 PM. Both venues provide a
relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere that youíre sure to enjoy!
PINT SIZE POLKAS
On the Pint Size Polkas front, you can catch my program at the
Verona Public Library next week Tuesday, April 26 starting at 6:30
p.m. This is part of a special series running now at libraries in Dane
County. Be sure to stop by and support this effort to promote the
traditions of polka music in Wisconsin!
Next month will also
mark our return to Pizza, Polkas and Preschool Art in the Park in
Waukesha at the newly renovated Les Paul Performance Center at Cutler
Park. We start there at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24. I understand the
old band shell has received a significant upgrade, so I'm looking
forward to having the chance to revisit this favorite old venue again
with Pint Size Polkas!
Between June, July
and August Iíll be visiting 10 states throughout the Midwest, East
Coast and Southeast, doing more than 100 shows. Itís going to be
another great summer for Pint Size Polkas!
