Music to Your Ears

It’s Sexy Squeezebox Time

The accordion is one of my favorite instruments. Its sound can be peppy, polka-y, haunting, mournful and, yes, even sexy. As such, I am predisposed to like this show, and I think it might turn you on, too. At Winning Coffee Co. on Wednesday, June 15, let the spirit of the sexy accordion take you. Two sultry accordion-toting performers from California will join Burque’s own Zoltan Orkestar in squeezing out vaudeville, cabaret, traditional French stuff and more.

Renée de la Prade, from San Francisco, has a name that makes her fit right in the genre. She plays solo and with bands, works in an accordion repair shop and co-designed the 2011 Accordion Babes Album and Pin-up Calendar. The calendar features 12 months of pics: scantily clad females in various locales showcasing their squeezeboxes. de la Prade plays everything from traditional folk to ’80s pop-punk to children’s music. Her touring partner-in-crime is Amber Lee Baker, who specializes in “neo-folk accordion cabaret.” Back in Santa Rosa, Calif., Baker’s main gig is Amber Lee and the Anomalies, but she’s flying solo for this trip. Along with the accordion, she uses a loop pedal, glockenspiel and other percussive instruments. Circusy gypsy jazz is what Zoltan Orkestar offers. The event will incorporate old-time variety show elements like humor and dance. Show up early so you don’t miss any of the sexiness.
