Bohemian Princess Diary

Howdy, Texas music fans! Great thing about music is that you can listen to it anywhere! But we miss our dancing community and hope we will be scootin’ our boots and kickin’ up our heels in dance halls, festival pavilions, and church picnic fields soon!

At press time, it was not known how far into April the closings of restaurants and dance halls would go because of the Coronavirus. We went ahead and included the April calendar of music events and the church picnic listings.

TPN and polkabeat.com promises to keep you informed as to events being canceled as we all work to stay safe from the virus. We update the schedule daily. When in doubt please call the venue or organization to make sure events are still taking place.

Until then check out these YouTube channels to help you polka on! Mollie B & Squeezebox, Alex Meixner Band, Buttonboxes by Walt Harfmann, George Weber, and The Manaccordionist Kelsey Lien. Visit our polkabeat Facebook page often as Gary posts music by several artists.

You can also listen to the polka radio shows. See the ads on page 15 and tune in locally or online.
