PINT SIZE POLKAS
So far Iíve done 107 shows this summer in CO, IA, IL, KS, MN, NE,
NM, OK, and TX, and still have about 45 shows to go in CO, IA, MI, MN,
and WI. Check out the
Events page for more information. Itís been an awesome
summer to say the least! Although with all the bookings, I havenít had
quite as much time for golf as I have some summers, but thatís a good
problem! I am so grateful to the many librarians who have brought me
in to their libraries either as a returning performer or for the first
time, and to the hundreds of patrons who have taken time out of their
days to give their kids a chance to hear polka music for the very
first time in the majority of cases. If youíd like to see Pint Size
Polkas at a library near you, please let your local librarian know Ė
Iíll gladly travel anywhere in the lower 48!
THE MIKE SCHNEIDER
When I get back home next month, Iíll get back in action with the band

itís a mad dash through the busy Oktoberfest season. Check out the

on all of our public events, including some longtime returning
favorites in Hustisford, Oak Creek, and at St. Gregís in Milwaukee, as
well as some new venues like Blessed Sacrament in Madison and St.
Joeís in Wauwatosa. Looking forward to a great late summer and fall
ahead! Need a map or directions to any of the events listed below?

Iíve been talking about this for years, but Iíve finally made some
progress this summer on writing several original songs for a
forthcoming Christmas CD and digital release Iíve been planning for
quite awhile now. It wonít be ready for this coming Holiday season,
but hopefully Iíll be able to make some progress in the studio with
arrangements and recording during my off season. Stay tuned for
