People always ask me, what I do and why I do it. So I have created a couple pages about my life, interests, accordion music and my pets.
I played in big bands, concert bands and orchestras most of my life. I played alto saxophone, clarinet and flute. I also loved accordion since I grew up in Cleveland and often heard polka bands. I took my first lesson in 1951 – many years ago! My ex and I had a duo we called “The Good Time Two.” We played dances, lounges and often outdoors.
Since half of the Good Time Two is gone, I play by myself. I played an electronic accordion with many organ sounds and orchestra sounds in the old days. It weighed 29 pounds and at 75, I am not able to lift it any longer. So I bought a Roland FR 4X which is a virtual accordion and weighs only 19 pounds. It has no reeds, only sampled sounds. Wonderful accordion, organ and orchestra sounds.
People always ask to hear my accordion music, so I posted some. I will add new music after I get use to the fancy new, accordion.
