Before the Accordion Babes. . .

Long before the Accordion Babes, we had Die Accordeon Babies, a “ladies” accordion orchestra from Vienna. They recorded their big hit, Tango Bolero, after Ravel, in 1939. After that, they seemed to have vanished into the mist, or was it the fog of war?

Join us tonight for Babies, Babes, and Boleros, all on the accordion.

Whoopee!

Whoopee John and more—larger than life accordionists tonight.  Gone but not forgotten.  Alright, mostly forgotten too, but not at In Heaven Thee Is No Beer, where we try to keep the flame alive.

More Spain, Puppies and Dogs

And, of course, Pablo Picasso. We ate at his restaurant!

And I went on a quest for The Holy Grail. A Quixotic undertaking to be sure—but I found it! Hear all about it tonight to the dulcet strains of an accordion.

Our Big Spanish Show

Accordions in Spain? Not so much. But lots of percussion, in fact, our two favorite kinds: foot stomping and hand clapping. And let’s not forget those tambourines of Olympic proportions.

Here’s me with the Flamenco troupe. La famiglia Vargas:
