The Center of the Nation Concert Association is excited to bring accordionist Alex Meixner and guitarist Jimmy Meyer to Belle Fourche to top off another great musical season! It's set for 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 26th at the Belle Fourche Area Community Center auditorium.
Equally at home playing traditional Oktoberfest or amped-up Rocktoberfest, their high energy performing incorporates the ability to meld traditional polka music into swinging jazz, gypsy world-beat, or smoking blues – and they do it with ease!
Alex Meixner is a Grammy nominated, nationally acclaimed musician, performer, band leader, educator, and a leading advocate of polka music. He has appeared on the Tonight Show, in the infamous Hormel Pepperoni ad, and he also recorded with comedy phenomenon Jack Black for the major motion picture “The Polka King”. He's been busy revitalizing interest in polka music from coast to coast, renewing cultural interest, and growing mainstream acceptance. Meixner's goal is to provide a much-needed positive experience that pulls communities together to celebrate history, culture, and genuinely good times.
The evening’s program will include lively versions of popular music and classics including Czardas, Singin’ in the Rain, Hello Dolly, Minnie the Moocher, Birth of the Blues, El Combranchero, In Den Bergin Polka, and Hoedown/Orange Blossom Special.
Alex really knows how to make his instrument sing and dance with joy – and enthusiasm! He brings his audience along on a musical journey through a variety of music that's sure to put a smile on your face – and a song in your heart!
Join us at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 26th for an evening of great fun!
