Alex-MeixnerThe Alex Meixner Band

Grammy Nominated Musician and Producer, Alex Meixner is back!

Alex’s high energy performances of everything from old time polkas and waltzes to more jazz and pop influenced repertoire has won over audiences throughout North America and continues to attract new fans. Equally at home with traditional and contemporary styles, he performs on about a dozen instruments (including the 12 foot long Swiss Alphorn and trademark Meixner Button Box sound) and vocals in English, German, Slovenian, Croatian, Czech and more!


Direct from Germany
Musikverein Herborn-Seelbach e.V.

The unique style and enthusiasm of the Red Devils returns to German Fest!
herborn-seelbachIn 1978, not quietly, but as befits a Musikverein – resoundingly – Musikverein Herborn-Seelbach began
.  Music teacher Erwin Gabriel together with some parents founded a new orchestra – a young band with a particular fondness for big band and swing music, in which the youngest musician was just 11 and the oldest, just 18 years old.  These talented musicians continue to resonate the joy of making music. “Dynamic, successful, young” energy brings outstanding solo presentations and stylish vocals to each concert.
