This is by no means any form of a comprehensive list. I love almost all of the accordion players that I get to see or hear, as each player brings a very unique personal style to the table with this insanely versatile instrument. These people are definitely among my "top of the pops" though!

 

The Zydepunks: Zydeco-powered punk rock fronted by two accordions. Also including an electric bass, full drum kit and violin!

 

 

Geoff Berner: Klezmer-style, sarcastic and insightful singing. Sometimes with a band, sometimes solo (that's the way to do it!)

 

 

Duckmandu: incredibly accomplished musician whose set includes covers of Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols and has written an instrumental duet album with a shamisen player. It's a really good set of tunes on that instrumental number!

 

 

Myron Floren: A GOD AMONG MEN.

 

 

Weird Al Yankovic: Cover/parody artist? Absolutely. Damn funny? Absolutely! Amazing accordion player? You be the judge!

 

 

Yup. That's pretty much it. Just some players that inspire me. Hope you like them as much as I do!

 

Have a listen!
