“For the last few years, we’ve hosted bands at various venues in the Los Angeles area. Some of our favorite bands feature accordion in their music. We thought the time was right to have one full weekend of accordion inspired music. Our appreciation and thanks to the bands who will help us discover why accordion music in the U.S. is experiencing renewed interest. With diverse styles such as Zydeco, Cajun, Tejano and alternative experimental, we look forward to promoting the rise of accordion music in the Los Angeles community.
