2 NEW CDs IN JANUARY 2013
I’m happy to announce I’ll have 2 new CDs available in early 2013. Cafe Accordion Orchestra will be releasing our 9th album La Zingara, a collection of tunes reflecting various Gypsy lifestyles. We have the honor of featuring guest vocalist Diane Jarvi and clarinetist Tony Balluff on 4 tracks. The recording features great music from France, Greece, Mexico, Venezuela, Cabo Verde, Finland and the US.
I also have a new solo album called (get this for clever) Daddy Squeeze Solo. It’s just exactly that, too, 11 tracks of just accordion with vocal, featuring original and traditional blues, jug band, rags and novelty tunes. Both albums will be available from my web site, cdbaby, and iTunes soon!
2 Cafe Accordion Orchestra Concerts for the New Year
I want to tell you about 2 great shows for CAO, ending 2012 and kicking off 2013. On New Year’s Eve we have the honor of sharing the stage at the Sheldon Theater in Red Wing, MN with Monroe Crossing. They are the region’s top bluegrass outfit and sell out shows all over the central states.
On January 12, CAO returns to the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis for out 8th annual concert there. This year we will be celebrating the release of our new album La Zingara. We’ll have Diane Jarvi and Tony Balluff as special guests. Our 2012 show at the Cedar was a sell out so get your tickets soon! You can find ticket info for both these great shows on my calendar page.
2013 Left Coast Domination Tour
January brings Daddy Squeeze back to California for my 3rd annual Left Coast Domination Tour. Tour dates are set for January 24- February 2. I have dates confirmed in Eureka, Healdsburg, Mendocino, San Francisco and Oakland. These are solo shows, mostly house concerts, all of which are listed on my calendar page. I still have some open dates to fill between Jan 28 and 31, so if you’re interested in hosting a house concert or hiring live music for a private event, send me an email!
