The International Flare of Café Accordion Orchestra
Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 7:30 p.m.
Delighting audiences from Lincoln Center to the International Akkordeon Festival in Vienna, Dan Newton’s Café Orchestra will perform great songs heard in films ranging from the Marx Brothers to Quentin Tarantino, revised to evoke the sound of a Parisian café, with film clips, cartoons, and a silent short.
Dan Newton’s Café Accordion Orchestra (CAO) performs an eclectic mix full of French flare, Latin heat and Bohemian attitude. The heart of the CAO repertoire is the romantic, gypsy-influenced valse-musette. The group complements the musettes with swing, ballads, tangos, cha chas, rumbas, and cumbias to create a wonderfully varied show. They inject their music with good humor and expressive abandon. Their high level of musicianship and passion for performance makes them an entertaining concert act as well as a great dance band.
Tickets are $24 for adults and $17 for students of any age.
