All you boomers out there … you dug out your flared poodle skirts, and guys slicked your hair into your ducktail, and the leather jackets came out and what a time we had !! It was a 50s-60s dance party!!! We had great 60s music, and the good times rolled! It was Saturday, July 19, 2014 at the Edelweiss Club, 108 Niagara Street, Victoria (in the James Bay area) Great dinner, followed by cool dance moves till the night was done!
Great music at jam sessions after the meeting and band practice Our last few meetings, always on the first Sunday of each month, have been terrific. Some great music from our members, and even from some young players who are students of well-known classical accordionist, Jelena Milojevic. What a treat to hear these young players crank out their tunes, and entertain the spectators and club members. The future of accordion in our region is very promising. The jam session after the meeting is always a highlight. Members and visitors alike join in to play familiar songs, and even some ethnic favourites. Toes tap, and bodies sway, and fingers snap to the melodies. A good time.
