Do you think we should add jammers free on the web sight. I could not copy the dance line up from the web page can you send me the list of dance in an e-mail?

    Daria - July 31, 2011

    Bob and I have another idea this time – no free admission – but another incentive. I will discuss it with you some time soon – there are quite a few ideas that are being “slept on.”

    The current online schedule is not meant for printing. I will put together another one in printer-friendly format and email it to you.

I am glad that you are having Alex Meixner back for a dance in December. Also Squeezebox band from ridgeville corners, Ohio is another good band Mollie B plays in that band she is head of the RFD tv mollieB polka show on Saturday nights at 10:00. Another good Band is the Dan Witucki Band from Orlando, Fl. They all bring great crowds wherever they play.I am sure my friends from Zephyrhills and I will be coming to most of your dances as we love polka music and are familiar with all of your bands.

    Thank you, Mary, for your response and look forward to seeing you around. Also, bring as many friends as possible – you’re all more than welcome!! 🙂

I’m learning to play the button box. I need some lessons regarding bellow techniques…I always run out of air. Anyone give lessons? thanks

    Hi Michael,
    Daria asked me to contact you regarding learning more about playing the Button Box. I am here in Sarasota, Fl. I see Tony Klepec all of the time and listen to him play so beautifully. He joined my Accordion Club some years ago.
    He can only teach by “ear” though and I really need music to go by. I have learned a few songs from the chord stamped music, but not the Slovenian songs that most play down here. I was wondering if you could help me at all. Are you only here in October? Please let me know.
    I would appreaciate any and all help at all. I play the Piano Accordion but am loving the button box now too. It’s fun.
    Thanks much,
