Breckerville at Reading Jazz Fest  

I'm a member of some really kickin' groups!

Some existing groups have picked me up for live performances and recordings along the way. All of them are fun to play with, challenging, and rewarding. Here's links to some of them:

The Ronstadt Revue

The Ronstadt Revue is the best Linda Ronstadt tribute act you can ever hope to see. We cover all the phases of LR's career from her Stone Pony days, through her pop and rock hits, into the Nelson Riddle orchestral albums and mariachi tunes. Click on the link for some great performance video, and come out to your local theater to see us!

Paula Johns

Paula Johns is a fantastic jazz chanteuse able to go from lyrical to gutsy in one fell swoop. Recently I arranged a Dionne Warwick tribute show that we are performing in many venues, and you can also catch us playing clubs and affairs, usually with great musicians like drummer Grant Macavoy and bassist Andy Lalasis. Paula is a sure crowd pleaser!

The Divine Hand Ensemble

The Divine Hand Ensemble is a unique group headed by Moog-endorsed theraminist Mano Divina, along with a string quartet or quintet, 2 harps, and tuned percussion. I started doing some Frank Zappa charts for them and ended up on the accordion. Truly a one-of-a-kind group, check this one out!

The GT3 Trio

The GT3 Trio is headed by drummer George Torrella and, in addition to private affairs, the group holds forth at restaurants and hotels throughout the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. George always has amazing musicians playing with him!

The Hot Club of Philadelphia

The Hot Club of Philadelphia is a gypsy jazz group spearheaded by guitarist Barry Wahrhaftig and dedicated to a French aesthetic of jazz popularized by Django Reinhardt. It's 1930's Paris again whenever I bring my accordion to join in with this great group.

Fusion Jazz Trio

The Fusion Jazz Trio is based in Allentown, PA, and has won the Lehigh Valley Music Awards category for Best Jazz Group 7 years in a row. Drummer Vernon Mobley and bassist Brian Bortz join me to kick out hot electric jazz.

Victory Jazz Quintet/ Orchestra

The Victory Jazz Quintet/ Orchestra is headed by trumpeter and fluegelhornist Al Moretti, playing his original tunes and other modern jazz classics. While the quintet/quartet/trio is ideal to catch in small jazz venues, the Orchestra is recently revived and is an 18-piece big band that can blow the foam off your beer in larger settings.

Below you'll find a calendar showing where to find me playing live in the near future.
