This show is going to be so amazing that I am hyper ventilating!
Shamalamacord is Aaron Seaman on accordion and Mike Penny on shamisen. They were both in Fishtank Ensemble. Aaron is an amazing performer, accordion and piano teacher. Mike is an award winning shamisen player. Together, they make a power duo to inspire and terrify their audience with their mad skills playing in what might be considered a jazz/gypsy style. I am not worthy! Aaron the accordion player gives me a little bit of rock star goosebumps. Eeek! He is a rock star, and so is Mike, and you need to take this opportunity to see these guys play in Sacramento!
Yeti is Jetty Swart,
and has a very interesting photo in the 2011 Accordion Babes calendar (really you should look it up) and is Miss August. Check out the calendar, it's got a great CD compilation featuring Yeti and other great accordion playing ladies!
From Holland via France and her music and energy and ability to "own it" is amazing. She has a wide vocal range and it doesn't seem like there is anywhere her voice can't go. She sings mostly in French accompanying herself expressively on accordion, and occasionally, with rubber chickens. She is sure to give a magical performance.
I will be opening the show with a short set of my own material on accordion and banjo guitar so these performers have some time to really dig into their material! I'm very excited to share them with you!
DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW.These performances are going to be magic.
