YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’LL FIND ON THE INTERNET The Internet, including websites like Facebook and You Tube, has brought an amazing amount of music and information right into your computer. You just never know what you might find, from video clips of Meisner performances during days gone by to some of Steve’s recent performances. In fact, sometimes video of the band is placed on-line before the band event returns home after the performance! Steve has a You Tube channel with multiple videos, but that is just the beginning. Many Meisner fans have uploaded video of their own. Then there are the one-of-a-kind creations that you may not even believe. Videos like a remake of Steve’s father Verne set to punk rock, heavey metal or how about Steve’s current band doing a Chippendales dance routine? You read all of that correctly! Nearly 20,000 people have already viewed the Extreme Brutal Death Metal Polka Band video on You Tube, featuring none other than Verne Meisner and several of his origional band members… well sort of. Then, Steve and the band take their shirts off in the realatively unseen Steve Meisner Band Dancevideo. What else can we even say? You just have to see them for yourself, because like we already said, you just never know what you will find on the Internet! Of course you’ll also find Steve and the band in some of their recent performances including from recent months at the Cleveland Thanksgiving event, theWhad Ya’ Know radio show Christmas party,Gemuetichkeit Days, the Essen Haus, the Warren Polka Boosters dance in Utica, Michigan and more.
