CALLING ALL ACCORDIONISTS!
Button - Keyboard - Chromatic - Cajun/Zydeco
Please review the events that are posted - we have an accordion competition AND JAM coming up in 2 weeks. All accordion types are invited. We will have a simple solo competition - by age and by accordion - example - if you are 63 years old - and play the keyboard accordion - you perform a solo - with or without your music - you are graded against yourself - and you receive a Medal based on the score you made -
THEN - there will be a JAM category - where - example if you are 13 years old and play the cajun box - you will perform 2 songs of varying styles - and you are allowed a back up band (3 pieces) or backtrack. This might require a 2nd round to determine the winners - so be prepared to play the style music the judge WILL ask for in round 2. You will be graded and the top three in your age bracket - will receive a Trophy. There is a category for each age bracket and for Cajun, or Keyboard/Chromatic, or Button Accordion.
We are encouraging ALL Accordionists - beginners, amateurs, semi-professionals - Cajun, Zydeco, Vallenato, Norteno, Tex/Mex, Conjunto, Italian, German, Czech, Celtic and more!!! to enter - you ALL WILL WIN!!!!
Come and enjoy Jamming ALL DAY - there will be 2 stages of Jamming going on the entire day.
