On May 29th, 2009, I was privileged to play my first performance of original tunes on my accordion at Zad’s Roadhouse in Milwaukee WI. I was part of a four-piece band at that time. Man, how things have changed over the years. Since that day there have been over 100 Death Polka performances all over the Midwest and Pacific Northwest. I guess I’m starting my first blog with this topic to say that each and every person who has come out to a show, played with me, let me crash on their furniture, fed me treats and booze…each and every one of you is an amazing person that I am honestly privileged to have crossed paths with. It amazes me sometimes how lucky I am to have had the chance to meet so many rad-tastic individuals!


I won’t get too mushy, but the reason I wanted to put out this blog (other than telling you guys that you fucking rule) is to list off all of the awesome bands I’ve gotten to play with in the last three years. If I’ve missed somebody, LET ME KNOW IN A COMMENT OR EMAIL! I want this list to be complete. I want to share all of the gnarly crunchy jams!
