I was surprised at how heavy they are! Put the thing on and almost fell over:)

My mom always played accordion. Any style, any song, she could just figure it out. We'd be around a fire in the summer with a bunch of neighbors or visiting family, and people would play the usual assembly of guitars and maybe beat on one of my dad's pieces of homemade lawn furniture, and out would come my mom with a big old accordion, stealing the show every time. I love accordion! Yay!

i totally know what you mean. accordions are so hot/kooky/addictive that i think it is probably really easy to OD on them really fast. maybe b/c the sound can be carnival/circus-like, or b/c you're always only a couple of steps away from a polka, or something.
these girls could change your mind, though. i mean, they did "bohemian rhapsody" for their encore! really tough not to love, yo.

The other day I was just saying, "Man I think it would be cool to learn the acordian..." And then I saw this... PIMPIN'! Ha and with the beatles music! That so rockin. Hmmm... I wonder though... maybe there are just too many acordians going on. I think the acordian sound for me is kind of cookie... I like it, but if I hear to much of it, I start to hate it. Why?

Cool vid.

i know, i really really want to be one of them.
i could only show half of them in my video, since the other half of the stage was poorly lit. but in full force i think the total orchestra consists of 18 WOMEN, in pigtails, with accordions. if that isn't any sane person's fantasy, then i don't know what is.
