Big Band Dance Tunes

Music for your club, organization, birthday party, wedding anniversary, Christmas party.  I play a digital accordion that has accordion and other instrumental sounds, plus I sing! I play standards from the 1920’s - 1970’s. My computerized accordion is self-contained which allows me to stroll while I play. I can provide you with lyrics if you would like to do a sing-along. I play for church groups, independent living facilities, and private parties.

There are 4 videos on this page for you to watch, plus many more on the other pages.

Just Because is one of my favorite Frankie Yankovic polkas. The videos on this page were recorded in my teaching studio. I have students of all ages taking lessons on accordion, organ and keyboard.

Tiny Bubbles, Don Ho’s classic Hawaiian tune.

Sentimental Journey - I did this one in black and white because it was a #1 hit when most movies where still in B & W. I don’t show it in these videos, but I have a small blue box on the floor that I use to store accompaniment tracks for each song. I am playing the string bass and accordion sounds live along with the sax and drum sounds that I prerecorded. This was Doris Day’s hit song with the Les Brown Band in 1945.

Your Cheating Heart is a 1953 Hank Williams country classic.
