Jason Webley is bringing the Monsters of Accordion back for a 2008 West Cost Tour starting on August 14th in Santa Rosa and ending up in Seattle on August 24th. Jason is joined by accordion giants Mark Growden, Amy Denio and Duckmandu.
“I meet so many amazing accordion players in my travels, and I thought it would be really fun to bring some of the best together,” explains Webley, who organized the tour.
The result is a tour-de-force featuring some of the most entertaining solo accordion performers currently working in North America. But don’t expect a night of polkas, because these aren’t your grandmother’s accordion monsters. Instead Webley and company will be delivering five evenings of squeezebox-fueled drinking songs, punk rock covers, experimental pop, dark tangos and sultry dirges.
