Welcome to the Scandinavian Cyber-Posten!
The Scandinavian Cyber-Posten is my blog for the band. Ever since I started reading The Machine's Pump on the Brave Combo website I've wanted my own blog. After all, I'm a creative and intelligent person and I have thoughts on a lot of things. Here's a place where you can read what I think about a variety of topics. I hope you enjoy what you read. If you have any feedback on what I've written, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Greetings, Scandinavian Fans! Things are looking up here at Scandinavian Central. We're booking a lot of great gigs for the summer and fall including a return to the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup, our first time since 1998, and a performance at SeaFoodFest in Ballard which will also include one of our absolute favorite bands, Brave Combo! As if that weren't enough, we've finally made the big time- we're going to Branson, MO to perform at Big Joe's Polka Fest at the RFD-TV Theater. They'll be taping the polka fest in HD for broadcast on Big Joe's Polka Show on RFD-TV. Don't worry if you can't find it on Comcast; RFD-TV is a satellite network. Hopefully I'll be able to snag a copy of the DVD. That would be really cool.
We're heading to Missouri on Memorial Day, just after we play at Folklife. Speaking of Folklife, we're going to be playing Saturday afternoon at 1pm at the Center House. The Folklife Polka Dance has been cancelled and apparently so has the Big Bamboo Dance Hall so they moved us to the Center House where they put us on the Western Swing Show. No problem. Those of you who've seen us live know that we LOVE Bob Wills' music and we play it on almost every show. Instead of mixing Western Swing into a polka show we'll be mixing polkas into a Western Swing show. Plus, it will give us an opportunity to pick some special songs for my wife to sing.
Keep an eye on our Upcoming Gigs page and you can find out where we'll be and when we'll be there. Hopefully you'll be there, too!
