Verne Meisner, a virtuoso accordionist and bandleader who helped keep the polka alive and swinging into the age of rock and beyond, died on Friday in Milwaukee. He was 66 and lived in Waukesha, Wis. The cause was complications of melanoma, his son Steve said. Considered one of the titans of polka, Mr. Meisner was a bridge between the classics of the Lawrence Welk era and the pop-infused polkas of contemporary artists. To thousands of fans, he was second only to Frank Yankovic, the acknowledged king of polka, who died in 1998. With his own group, Verne Meisner & the Polka Boys, he scored with the 1958 single Memories of Vienna, the first of over 60 original polkas he would compose across the decades to come, the most famous among them being El Rio Drive. Asserting his mastery of the so-called Cleveland style, a polka form rooted in Slovenian tradition, Meisner toured relentlessly, performing everywhere from European festivals to Las Vegas ballrooms. Over the course of his career, he cut dozens of LPs, and in 1989 was inducted into the International Polka Hall of Fame.
