It's quite humbling to see just how many people in the world are playing accordion.

I didn't think that Jimmy Blair or whoever he was was EVER gonna let the kids play in the first video. Holy lead in.

The second band was my fave...although it's hard to beat seeing the CIA playing accordion...

Candy....Jimmy Blair had passed away before this video was shot, The reason that there was a long lead in was due to technical reasons ( this can be clearly heard if you listen )
