Those Darn Accordions

Legendary San Francisco rock accordion band Those Darn Accordions  pumps out an outrageously original sound from their amped up squeezeboxes. Fronted by squeezebox wizard/lead singer Paul Rogers, the band performs original rock and funk songs, and also explores more-eclectic musical genres like ska, reggae and the prerequisite polkas. The aim is always to pump up and blow away the crowd with solid musicianship and a a good dose of humor.

Suzanne Garramone, the band's other accordion player, adds fleet fingers and a variety of guitar effects pedals to produce a sound like nothing you've ever heard emanating from a typical accordion. Drummer Bill Schwartz and bass player Lewis Wallace round out this one-of-a-kind band.
