Old school musician

Here’s another image from last weekend’s accordion festival. This guy is old school, but his look is très cool. No need for color–his vibe is all about black and white. I grabbed the shot while standing just outside a small booth where accordions were being sold.

Button box player

This past weekend our band played at the Cotati Accordion Festival. Our set was on Saturday, but Maggie and I were there all day, both days, selling merch and hanging with friends and fans. When I wasn’t at the booth working, eating or enjoying a cold beer or two ;-), I was out and about with my camera. My first offering is a portrait of our fiddler friend Scott working a button box.

Les accordéonistes

Yesterday, my accordéoniste wife and I played a few tunes at the grand re-opening ceremony at Smythe’s Accordion Center in Oakland, CA. The event featured lots of fine musicians. I kept my G11 handy and took shots throughout the day. Here are two faves (that they are both diagonal shots is purely a coincidence).
