This Week in Accordion: Polka Fireworks

Summer is officially here and the accordion calendar is heating up…

  • Polka Fireworks Festival (Fri-Tue in Champion, PA)
    More than 25 of the nation’s top polka bands will be at Seven Springs Resort this week for six days of nonstop polka fireworks. The festival includes after hours jam sessions, as well as polka music and dance lessons.
  • Sunny Sauceda Accordion Clinic (Saturday in Lubbock, TX)
    Hohner and Tarpley Music are sponsoring a series of accordion clinics led by two-time Grammy winner Sunny Sauceda (formerly of Grupo Vida). I’m guessing he could teach you a thing or two.
  • Tex-Mex Polka Dance Party (Saturday in Austin, TX)
    Is it just me or does the Austin Moose Lodge #1735 have the best parties ever? I mean, what other Moose Lodge has a membership dance (open to the public!) with Brave Combo and Los Idolos del Barrio? I still don’t know what a Moose is, but I don’t care. Sign me up!

Is there something squeeze-worthy going on in your neighborhood? Let us know and we’ll get it on the calendar.
