Ameriikan Poijat (“Boys of America")  is a unique Finnish American brass band that was founded by Paul Niemisto in 1990 in Northfield.  Their newest CD- “Juhlat – Festivals and Celebrations” releases on Dec. 1. 2018, at Content Books on Division St.   Paul Niemisto will be there to autograph between 11:00 and 1:00.
 
Paul writes "It’s been about ten years since Ameriikan Poijat has recorded a new album. Part of this is because our Finnish style brass septet has already covered a lot of our favorite music in the first four CDs (about 80 separate selections). At one time, we were thinking about doing a Christmas album, but couldn’t get excited about adding one more to a glut of seasonal recordings. What was left? The modern stuff!
