5/1/2014 Steve Meisner Rocks 5/1/2014
STEVE WINS THREE SEPARATE AWARDS April was a huge month both for Steve Meisner and for his 2013 CD release, Meisner Time. Two separate, nation-wide, organizations voted Meisner Time the best Slovenian Style polka release in 2013. The first organization to release their award winners was the Polka America Corporation (PAC), where Meisner Time finished on top as the Best Slovenian CD in the 2014 PAC Awards. The PAC awards start with nominations and voting by industry experts followed by final ballots from voting members and the general public. Only days later it was the 24/7 PolkaHeaven’s Best of 2013 that likewise announced that Meisner Time had been voted number one across all of the Slovenian Style releases in 2013. Sweet Jennie Lee took top votes for the best Cleveland-Style, Contemporary, Polka Variety Song of 2013. The 24/7 IJs nominated the finalists before more than 32,000 votes were cast by listeners world-wide during their week-long voting for the 24/7 PolkaHeaven awards. With a national audience voting, Meisner Time was placed on top by both, separate and independent, organizations. At the end of April it was the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) holding their annual awards show on April 27th where Steve Meisner was selected as the WAMI Polka Artist of the Year from a list of seven finalists. The last WAMI win for Steve was in 2010 with previous WAMI awards in 2001, 1996 and 1989. Steve wants to thank everyone who took time to vote in all of the recent awards, and added "It is a privilege to be included and counted among so many wonderful recordings and talented people.” If you don’t have your copy of the award winning Meisner Time, you’ll certainly want to have it in your music collection. It’s available in both CD and MP3 download from www.stevemeisner.com as well as many local and Internet sources. Better yet, pick up a copy at one of Steve's next performances! See for yourself why polka fans everywhere say Meisner Time is number one.
