Message from Joan
Stella, Dan, and I want to thank, once again, all of you who helped to make the Frank Marocco concert a huge success! Wasn't he just amazing?!!!
In a few weeks, the American Accordionists' Association will be having its annual festival. This year it will be held at the Adams Mark Hotel in Buffalo, NY, July 12-16. Dan and I go every year and always have a lot of fun! As vendors with "SqueezinArt", we have met lovely people, heard terrific accordion concerts, attended great workshops, and we always enjoy the bus trips. This year, the bus will take us to Niagara Falls where visitors will be treated to a huge group of accordionists playing at the falls! Check out the website for AAA: www.ameraccord.com. Hope to see you there!
Free Concert this Saturday
