This is the fourth indie release of the provocative, girl-powered, ultimate tribute to the squeeze box, created by Renee de la Prade. The Accordion Babes Album & Pinup Calendar is sultry, sexy, sassy, silly, sweet, and impassioned. The women are not only beautiful, they are damn fine musicians, playing one of the world's greatest instruments.
The evening's audience will be enchanted by three calendar girls and will be joined by a multi-musical line-up from the alternative accordion scene that has colored Los Angeles music in recent years. From blues to punk, experimental to jazz, Latin to gypsy, Bulgarian to Klezmer, opera to cabaretthis ain't your grandfather's accordion music!
Your Evening's Hostess, Mrs. Hobbs of Ketchup Soup: Ketchup Soup is a stripped down duo with a unique pairing of eclectic instrumentation that offers a speakeasy, jazz-folk style to satiate those with a gourmet music palate.
