Music with old world charm. The accordion has a distinctive sweet sound; It's almost a lost art in the US. I play a variety of music that is perfect for parties, receptions, festivals, dances, dinner music, film scores, etc. Once I was hired to serenade a young lady outside her window while her suitor watched. When I finished he asked her to marry him; She said yes. No electrification; No electronic enhancement. Just music that your guests will never forget. Since I am on the Southwest coast of Florida I play between Naples and Sarasota. I will travel outside of SW FL but rates are increased to cover travel.
Price Range: $75 -$100 per hour.
Gig Length: 30 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
It's just me and my accordion. No electronics or amplification; no computer enhancement. All I really need is a chair. I show up and start to play. Usually I take a 5 minute break every 30 minutes. For wedding planners let me suggest something unusual; I have serenaded women outside of their window while their fiance stood by. It's a romantic touch they'll talk about for years.
Richard has been playing accordion for years. He knows an assortment of tunes but will be happy to learn any particular song that you might like for your event.
