Café Accordion

Daddy Squeeze Cafe AccordionDan Newton, Accordioniste, brings the charm and elegance of the French "Musette" to life. Sweet, understated, and sophisticated, Dan's music takes the listener to a sidewalk café in Paris, where men in straw boaters pass by on bicycles, while others sip strong coffee from tiny cups and puff on unfiltered cigarettes. This is the same kind of music one hears in black-and-white films shown only in independent art theaters, films with subtitles and haunting soundtracks.

This is the music of romance, passion, and dreams. This is the "valse musette", the tango and paso-doble, the music for strolling down the Champs-Elysee, or boating on the Seine. This is Dan Newton -Accordioniste.
