PINT SIZE POLKAS
The big news for this month is that for the first time in several years I have hit the 140-program mark for summertime bookings. Most of these bookings are for Pint Size Polkas, including library visits in 10 states. I'm looking forward to stopping at many of my favorite libraries, plus many news ones this coming May through August! Iím also really excited to return to the library systems in Tulsa, OK and Albuquerque, NM in back-to-back years, as itís confirmation I must be doing at least something right! Please check out the Events page at to find a show near you this year!

THE MIKE SCHNEIDER BAND
While Pint Size Polkas makes up the majority of my summer work, band business this summer and fall are looking strong, as well! The advent of new beer gardens in Southeastern Wisconsin has been a big bonus for local polka musicians, and I'm glad to be part of this musical trend at venues in Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, Oak Creek and Waukesha this summer. Many of these dates are already listed on the Schedule page at www.mikeschneiderband.com. I'm waiting on details from a few of them, but will be posting those as I receive them. When Iím not on the road, you can also plan on catching us monthly at the Old German Beer Hall and the Milwaukee Moose Lodge, plus several festivals and fairs this summer and fall. I hope to see you soon!

NEW RECORDING
And it's coming soon! It features one brand-new song, plus exciting new remixes of every other original tune I've released on CD since 1998. The digital album will be titled "The Original Collection." If my count is correct, there will be 17 tracks in all. Assuming all goes well, the album should be available this summer on all major digital music platforms such as iTunes. I'd love to release a CD copy, but given how slow sales have been for physical traditional polka album CDs, I'm hoping this first jump into the realm of digital music for the Mike Schneider Band is a successful one. Stay tuned for details on when this project becomes available!

That's all for this month. Wishing you a very Happy Easter later this week!
