Tributes To The Bands
I am not an award winning author, but my stories are imaginative and sentimental. People ask how I got the idea to use song/album titles and how it all started.
Back in 2008 Mike Matousek was inducted into the Polka Music Hall Of Fame. Jay & I threw a dance to honor him and 250 of his friends came out to hear Charm City Sound play some awesome music.
I made a giant card for everyone to sign and as I was trying to find the right sentiment. I knew it had to be special and unique. After a while I decided to use song titles that Mike recorded over the years.
It needs to be a special occasion for me to write a tribute. By using Song/Album titles that the honoree has recorded makes each story different and unique.
I hope you enjoy
them as much as I enjoy writing them. It's my way of thanking
the musicians for keeping polka music alive.
