Entertainment Details
Alex Meixner,
 a 2007 Grammy nominee, is a musical chameleon. He has performed traditional ethnic music since he was 4 years old and has extensive experiences in a wide variety of musical genres (everything from classical to jazz to pop to world music from around the world!) His true passion lies in entertaining audiences.... he does this primarily with an international party mix of polka music. See a live show. Become a believer.

"Die Heimatklänge" Orchestra has been providing music to the German-American Community since 1955. Today’s band members  Bill, Fred, Joe, John, Wayne, and Dino  are the second generation in the musical tradition. With a true love of music of all varieties, Die Heimatklänge is at home in any venue. Their unique sound combines traditional waltzes and polkas, with some classic rock and roll and even a musical ballad or two. The band brings song and dance to German-American organizations and people up and down the east coast. In the Philadelphia area, having a good time with German music means “DieHeimatklänge!”
