Meet Ken Weiss and Alex Meixner
A few years ago Alex Meixner starred in a major Oktoberfest TV production directed by award-winning copywriter and video producer, Ken Weiss. Alex is a national polka megastar and Grammy-nominated performer who has headlined at scores of Oktoberfests across the country.
For the TV production, Alex played on the front of a horse-drawn Oktoberfest float that was winding through busy downtown streets as Ken followed in a van with the camera crew. The police barricaded practically every major road on the route as thousands of delighted pedestrians sang along to the festive song over the loudspeaker - an original tune that Alex and Ken wrote for the event.
For Alex and Ken, this was the beginning of a wunderbar relationship. From there, they created this awesome new Oktoberfest TV commercial, original song, and a promotional package that will knock your lederhosen off!
