As Lawrence Welk use to say, "Everybody Loves a Polka". In the days, of days gone past, Lawrence Welk could almost have you convinced that this was true, well to some degree or other.
Today, not so much. People have a choice. Hip Hop to Country the genre pool is deep. Flavors and tastes are plentiful with spin off going in all imaginable directions,
The White House has booked, The All Accordion Band, to play soothing music in the evening. The band is currently in rehearsals to expand their repertoire. From Guido Deiro to Dr Dre. They want to leave no stone unturned. Never know when the President might request a Black Eyed Peas tune.
Enduring an entire concert of a symphony composed of various accordions is tantamount to ear suicide.
Going to a bagpipe jam?
Fingers on a chalkboard is the reaction from many.
So, as we are all snug as a bug in a rug around Christmas time, we can all take solace in the knowledge that the most powerful man in the free world, is stuck listening to accordions.
