There have been a lot of rumors floating around regarding the Mollie B Polka Party that was scheduled for August in Medina, MN and the Mollie B Christmas Special scheduled in November in Branson, MO.
First, BOTH of those events are CANCELLED. The Mollie B Polka Party taping in Medina, MN in August 2016 has been CANCELLED and the Mollie B Christmas Special in Branson, MO in November 2016 has also CANCELLED. If anyone tries to tell you differently, they are definitely mistaken. Both “Mollie B” events are CANCELLED. Mollie is working on a possible date to perform in Branson in early November; however, there is no official performance scheduled at this time.
Mollie B had every intention of doing the Medina, MN Mollie B Polka Party Taping and the Mollie B Christmas Special in Branson, but difficulties arose with RFD-TV, including non-payment for the Ennis, TX taping, which resulted in Mollie B. having to seek legal counsel to protect her rights under her contract with RFD-TV. Since this is a legal matter, neither Mollie B nor I, Ted Lange, are at liberty to further discuss details regarding this matter and we hope people will understand that.
This whole situation saddens Mollie and I more than anyone will ever know. Mollie and I both genuinely feel bad for all the fans and bands, especially anyone who made plans to attend either of these events. Anyone who knows her or has come into contact with her clearly sees she’s a caring, loving, responsible, Christian woman who puts her all in everything she does, and can be relied upon to do what she says she is going to do.
I encourage you to question what some call “facts” before blindly believing what you read or hear coming from different sources regarding this matter. Let’s hope those sources STOP THE LIES AND PERSONAL ATTACKS. LET’S BE RESPECTFUL. We find this type of behavior disrespectful, unprofessional and degrading.
I want to make clear that this has NO impact on our performances as “Squeezebox with Ted Lange & Mollie B”. We will continue to travel and perform, so we can share our love for the music with our fans.
Additionally, this has NO impact on our cruise, taking place in 2017. We hope you’ll join Squeezebox along with The Jimmy Sturr Orchestra, The Kenny Brandt Band, Fred Ziwich and the International Sound Machine, Jim Busta, and the Music Connection.
Your prayers and support are appreciated.
Updates on future performances will be sent shortly and updated on our website within the next several days.
