What is this?  This is a blog.  I am starting a blog.  What is that?  That is a picture of me with a Green Bay Packer Super Bowl ring!  Oh yeah…  What have I been up to lately?  Working a lot, teaching, writing, and performing music.

Most recently, I finished composing a euphonium/marimba duet working with great musician and low brass player, Steven Darling.  We premiered the work at his recital at UW-Milwaukee, then played it again at “Voirimba!”  That made up word, other than being a mix between the word voice and marimba, is the name of a fundraiser that I put on with the help of Amy Fuchs and Guy Gregg at Oak Creek High School.  It rocked, they rock and we were able to raise over $300 for the students’ band program!  I also had the pleasure of playing David Friedman’s “Nyack” with amazing percussionist/vibraphonist, Colin O’Day!

The next event that is on the roster is “Mike Neumeyer & Friends #7.”  This is on July 8th, 6:30pm at the Veteran Memorial Park Bandshell in Port Washington, WI.  It is always a nice jazz in the park setting where you can check out the beautiful lakeside city during a relaxing Sunday afternoon/evening.  Hope to see you there!

When will the next blog be?  Stay tuned 🙂
