What a fun month August was, and what a great start September has gotten off to! But don’t worry: If you missed us at West Bend Germanfest, Oak Creek Lions Fest, or any of the other fantastic stops we made over the last few weeks, we have a lot more in store for you this Fall!

This weekend marks our return to several long standing events, starting on Friday with Light the Lamp Brewery in Grayslake, IL for their annual Oktoberfest. Saturday, we have a doubleheader starting at the Platzkonzert in Hoffman Estates, IL, followed by a very quick turnaround to get to St. Dismas in Waukegan, IL for their Polka Mass and dinner dance. Sunday, we’ll be back at our family’s home parish of St. Gregory the Great in Milwaukee. All three of our kids were baptized there, and aside from a couple of COVID years, we’ve played there I think every year since 2007 or so. Looking forward to visiting again this Sunday!

There is a ton more coming up over the next few weeks, including our kickoff of Gemuetlichkeit Days where we’ll serve as the opening act for Mollie B., Ted Lange and Squeezebox! Be sure to consult the schedule below and visit the Schedule page at for updates as they come in!

While the bulk of my big travels are done for the year, I still have a few Pint Size Polkas shows coming up, including the Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 17, plus a quick trip to Kentucky in October! Check out the Events page for details on all my upcoming family programs.

As always, be sure to join our growing list of fans on Facebook here, or the Mike Schneider Band here. Once you’re there, click the Like button at the top of the page.

That's all for this month. I hope to see you at a festival or library near you soon!
