Polka Palooza featuring Alex Meixner and the Guitar Slingers, sponsored by PartyMasterz
June 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
One of the hottest polka bands on the planet, The Alex Meixner Band, will perform live at the Evergreen County Club in Fleetwood. Because of his natural charisma and high levels of on-stage energy, Alex Meixner is known for his ability to excite and engage audience members.
But the hallmark of a Meixner performance is the group’s unique sound. With songs like traditional polka jams and influences like Led Zeppelin, Meixner and company create an electric sound from an unlikely combination of influences.
Titles include Meixner’s most popular hits like “Polka Freak Out,” “Three Ring Circus,” “The Legacy” and audience-participation songs like “Why Die Thirsty.”
For this special Polka Palooza show, Meixner and his band will be joined by three inducted members of the Berks History Center’s Berks County Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: veteran guitarists Mickey Fisher, Dave Lewis and Berks Country Fest Executive Producer Dave Kline. Together, these three will form The Guitar Slingers. Watch as these three guitarists join Meixner and his band to help whip up the folks on the dance floor. Joining the jam is Grand Old Opry fiddler Travis “The Mad Fiddler” Wetzel. From polka to rock, and country to pop, the audience will get it all with this eclectic lineup.
