Detail Description

Accordion-O-Rama has been around since 2004 when Dan Newton, a.k.a. Daddy Squeeze, and Marie Marvin, who runs Crossings at Carnegie, organized the first event. According to a 2010 MinnPost article by Pamela Espeland, “the idea was to hold a miniature accordion festival, showcasing different musicians and musical styles, in a town where people were likely to show up, a stronghold of Polish and German heritage and polka.” There continues to be cookies at the intermission.

Denny Malmberg can be seen performing throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area with various groups including: The Golden Strings, The Mouldy Figs, and with his own Quartet. He also a frequent performer at Crooners’ Lounge & Supper Club performing with the talented songstress Charmin Michelle.
