Accordions Must Predominate

Photo: Arthur Stephens

A while back Pippin and I made a vow to play with people who are better than we are. So continuing in that spirit, Bob Jacobs (photo above) will join us this Wednesday at O'Toole's.  Bob plays locally with Gypsy Roots and has had a long and fruitful accordion career.  My favorite story is when he played for Lawrence Welk at a book signing.

The Happy Lucky Combo will also be playing at Ellwoods Coffee this Saturday, October 3. This is our first gig there, so we hope a lot of friends from the North side of the River will come by. Admission is free. It is smoke free and beer and wine are served. We play from 7:00 until 9:00 PM.

RUMOR: Emily Avesian, baritone sax, will join us at O'Toole's.

  1. Let me know when you're ready to play with people worse than you. I'm there.

  2. You can put me on after the "worse" guy.
