THOSE DARN ACCORDIONS
This accordion-fueled rock 'n' roll band pumps out catchy originals, classic rock and pumped up polkas. Fronted by lead singer/squeezebox wizard Paul Rogers along with Suzanne Garramone, TDA promises to forever rearrange your understanding of the accordion. TDA's extreme squeezeboxers mix solid keyboard chops with a groundbreaking use of guitar effects pedals and amps to produce a super-cool sound like nothing you've ever heard emanating from an accordion.
Behind the amazing wall of wheeze, drummer Michael Messer and bass player Lewis Wallace anchor the band, providing a firm foundation upon which the manic TDA accordionists can layer huge slabs of sonic mayhem.
With a sense of humor that just won't quit, the one-of-a-kind band blazes through a variety of musical genres -- from rock and funk to polka -- and torches timeless classic rock tunes along the way. You won't believe your ears.

EVERYONE IS TALKING TDA
Sexy, raw and diabolically funny. Right up there with NRBQ as a band with a real point of view.
