Not to get married — sorry to get your hopes up — but to play for a wedding dinner. Kristine is looking for an accordionist to play some “old Italian songs” after her wedding on the evening of May 27. The festivities will be held outdoors at a small vineyard in Ione, CA (outside Sacramento). I know it’s short notice but if you can help, email her at steelerchick1 at hotmail and save us some cake.
Let’s Polka is devoted to all things accordion.
