It’s time to bust the winter blues, get on your dancing shoes, and “Polka for the Pets” on Saturday, March 30 from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. This fun night of music and merriment, to benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County, will take place at the Jefferson V.F.W., 1420 Rockwell St. with music provided by the multi-talented Steve Meisner Band.
Steve began playing the accordion at the age of 5 and has been earning a living in the music business since the age of 16. His family has a rich musical heritage and he is a second-generation full time working musician. Steve’s brand of music is extremely versatile and appealing to a wide audience. He has made a name for himself by taking the music he grew up with and adding his own imagination and feeling. He has brought his brand of traditional American polka into the 21st century with a fresh spark & swing while retaining the roots of this music.
Steve Meisner says: "My main goal in life is to utilize my musical gift to make as many people happy as I possibly can, while I can. Music is a large part of the soul of our society and I want to touch that part of people's souls...that part of their soul that makes a difference in their lives and shows them that music and dancing can excite, motivate and heal. There is nothing more gratifying than meeting a new fan who has just discovered my music for the first time. The expression on their face is like a child’s on Christmas morning...its priceless!"
The night will also feature a 50/50 raffle and there will be plenty of food and beverages available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County. The cost of admission is just $5.00, with additional donations gladly accepted. If you love music, dancing, animals, or just enjoy donating to a worthy cause, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 30 and ‘Polka for the Pets’ from 6:00-10:00 p.m. at the Jefferson V.F.W.!
