Those Darn Accordions

Those Darn Accordions continue to rock the accordion world with their high energy accordion chops and smile inducing tunes. The band has gone through a myriad of changes over the past 26 years, but their performances continue to wow crowds around the U.S. What began as a one night stand at a local SF watering hole has morphed into a kaleidoscopic configuration of accordionists. Frontman Paul Rogers heads a line up of Bay Area squeezeboxers that continue to push the boundaries of what is possible when a traditional instrument like the accordion is run head on into rock and roll.

Joining  the current TDA line up of Paul Rogers, Suzanne Garramone, Lewis Wallace and Ian Luke are Susie Davis and Carri Abrahms and special guest Tom Torriglia. TDA will be drawing from it’s time proven repertoire and offering some new surprises as well.  This is not a show to be missed!
