PERFORMING AT THE 2016 CAF
The Golden State
Accordion Club Band
The Golden State Accordion Club Band has been pleasing audiences with its European style music for many years. The group is sponsored by the Golden State Accordion Club and features a variety of accordions including Button Box, Piano and Chromatic instruments.
Responding to audience demands, the band performs polka and waltz music of various European styles. The band prides itself on the ability to get the toes tapping, the hands clapping and the dance floor flowing.
The Golden State Accordion Club was formed in l991 and is a very active organization determined to promote the accordion family and perpetuate the enjoyment this instrument gives to all. The club is comprised of three chapters which meet each month at the following locations; Vacaville, Humboldt County (Loleta) and Sacramento.
The club is very proud of its scholarship and accordion loaner programs, which offers financial support and instrument availability to young players. The past year the club awarded 15 scholarships to youngsters ranging in age from 8 to 16. To date we have awarded more than $50,000 in scholarships.
Just for fun, we invite you to bring your accordion or other musical instruments and join others in wild, raucous, noisy playing in our jam tent here at Cotati. We also hope you will be able to visit us at one of our meetings; and, if you would like more information about this club, contact Carole at 707-864-2359
