El Rio Drive Named AS AN All-Time Greatest Hit!
November 15 , 2014
Of the many songs Steveís father, Verne Meisner, created over his lifetime, El Rio Drive is arguably the most popular. Created in 1977 and named for the street in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, where Verne lived at the time, El Rio Drive became an immediate hit at local performances in and around Milwaukee. That happened even before being recorded one year later for the El Rio Drive album release. Although the songís popularity continued to spread far and wide, few knew that it was Verne Meisner who had created the catchy song. Today, El Rio Drive continues to be performed live as well as recorded by many artists in all styles of music from Dutchmen and Czech to Polish, Slovenian and of course Tex-Mex. When the curtin goes up at this yearís National Cleveland Style Polka Hall of Fame awards show on Saturday, November 29, El Rio Drive will be inducted as one of this yearís All-Time Greatest Hits. Steve very much regrets not being able to attend the awards show and watch as long-time musician friends Eddie Klacnik presents the award and Hank Thunander performs the song. Still, it brings Steve great pride that his dadís creation, El Rio Drive, will be certified as an All-Time Greatest Hit.
