Album Notes
Alex Meixner’s performing career began at age 6 with his two sisters and father in an ethnic folk ensemble. From these early experiences through headline appearances at music festivals throughout the US and Canada; concert performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, Sandy Duncan and his own jazz and ethnic ensembles; as well as over 50 recordings (including a 1994 Grammy award winner and a 2007 Grammy Nominee), Meixner has developed a unique musical mix that appeals to a wide cross-section of audiences.
Meixner’s formative musical studies were on piano and piano accordion, but he quickly branched out on drums, diatonic button accordion, bass and trumpet, his college major. This instrumental versatility is combined with a musical background that has included intense studies and performance of jazz, classical, pop, polkas and many ethnic folk music genres with some of the leading artists in the world. His talents in music and comedy were even featured on the Tonight Show on NBC in 2004.
Through the last 15 years, Alex has been featured nationally with his father's band- The Al Meixner Trio at numerous Oktoberfests, multi-cultural music events, dances and concert venues. In 2008, Alex continues the family tradition with his current band. Recent appearances at the National Folk Festival (Butte, MT); Smoky Hill River Festival (Salina, KS); Lowell Folk Festival (Lowell, MA) and Polkabration (Uncasville, CT) are continuing Alex's reputation as a dynamic entertainer and "the hardest working man in the polka business"!
The latest cd- Family Tradition, celebrates 4 generations of the Meixner Musical legacy in the US. Some selections are in traditional styles and some represent the evolution of the Meixner sound. Dynamic polkas, beautiful ballads and waltzes, as well as some world music, old jazz and rock flavors offer a glimpse of the sounds audiences throughout the nation have enjoyed at Alex's performances.
Check it out! You're sure to enjoy this musical journey!
