Accordion Radio Documentary

Some nice folks, one of whom I met also named Julie, are putting together some kind of radio documentary about accordions in the mid-cali area, I believe. Look for it! There is some great stuff happening around here in the accordion world!
This will lead you to some of their stuff.

Klezmer Accordion Workshop with Duckmandu!

Accordion Apocalypse Shop selling some of our consigned accordions

Our most favorite accordion store has a number of accordions me and my husband personally selected on consignment right now.
They are not yet up on their website, but there are several models available, including an old student hohner model, a Rivelli in very nice condition, a Florintino with orange sparkly keys and light blue bellows....and more!
So, if you are in the market for an accordion, there are some nice inexpensive used ones there I personally approve of.
Also, don't forget the 3rd Saturday of the month is usually a workshop with Duckmandu, from 4-7 pm. He has really great technique and a wide range of styles in playing. This month he is teaching us how to play "Police Story" by Black Flag.
Check it out at They are based in South SF and also do repairs on accordions!
