The MONSTERS OF ACCORDION:
AARON SEEMAN combines amazing technical playing (he
has recorded with Mr. Bungle) with a sense of humor.
His forte is playing note-for-note covers of Dead
Kennedies songs. This is no easy task!
DANIEL ARI really gets the audience involved and truly listening.
He is lovely and funny. His songs are full of Octopi and existential
ponderings and they make you start to fly
around the room.
JASON WEBLEY will also be playing. Doing some of
the amazing stuff he does. He gets the crowd involved and has many sing alongs. You will be kept on your toes during his performance. Lyrics are beautifully written.
KIMRIC SMYTHE runs Smythe's Accordion Center in
Oakland, CA, conveniently located next to 21 Grand. If
you really must buy an accordion, buy it from him.

I have seen Jason Webley and he's absolutely amazing!!! Whatever kind of music you like you gotta see him!!!
According versions of Dead Kennedys' songs sounds uber amusing. And who can resist songs about octopi?
