Alex Meixner is a nationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated musician, performer, bandleader, educator and a leading advocate of polka music. Formally trained in classical, jazz and ethnic music, Meixner has cross-pollinated his versatile playing styles through pop music, funk, jazz and polka. He is an active ambassador for polka music, revitalizing interest coast to coast, resulting in sold-out shows, renewed cultural interest and growing mainstream acceptance. This band’s mission is about much more than playing energetic shows, it’s providing a much-needed positive experience that pulls communities together to celebrate history, culture and genuinely good times. The band’s latest album, You Asked for It, was recorded live and released in 2016.
