Yes, it's June, National Accordion Awareness Month. Another wonderful San Francisco invention!
I feel duty-bound to note that it's the piano accordion, and not the Cajun accordion, that's been designated San Francisco's official instrument. A minor oversight. Good thing I live in Berkeley :-)
This seemed like a good time to launch my official blog for "Accordion Dreams" at http://accordiondreams.blogspot.com/
I'll be offering assorted observations on the final journey to publication in January, along with maybe some contests and give-aways. So feel free to stop by!
Oh--Sauce Piquante will be playing at McGrath's Pub this coming Saturday in Alameda. I think it's actually the official "Day of the Accordion" in SF, so we want to do our part!
