(Viva) Las Vegas International Accordion Convention

It seems like every profession or industry these days has an annual convention in Vegas, and accordionists are no different. The Las Vegas International Accordion Convention runs from June 26 to June 29 at the Gold Coast Casino & Hotel. If you can manage to pull yourself away from the craps table, you’ll enjoy three full days of entertainment, special events, and workshops on topics as wide-ranging as “Bellows Shakes,” “Digital Accordion Voicing,” and “Slovenian Polka Styles.” There’s also a dinner/concert each evening during the convention — headliners include Art Van Damme and Dick Contino. And don’t forget all the opportunities to network with fellow accordion players from around the world. That’s priceless!

Well, actually, there is a price: $435 for individuals, $765 for couples, which includes all daily events, meals, and evening concerts (not including hotel). If you still need some convincing, check out some photos from last year and previous years.

  1. Hi, my name is Roy Hendrie.

    I am an accordionist from Scotland and coming to Las Vegas on 12-16 Dec 2007 on holiday with my wife

    I am wondering if there is any accordion club organised for that time or if there are any Hotels where an accordionist plays????

    If nothing is happening in Dec, maybe i’ll try and get over some year to your convention

    I would be very much obliged if you could help me with any info
