Review OC Accordion Fest 2009


Wild Musicians Put "Big Squeeze" on Orange County

By Craig MacDonald

Costa Mesa, Orange County Market Place --The incredibly energetic music from accordions, fiddles, guitars and drums permeated the air to the absolute delight of thousands of people at "The Big Squeeze," the First Orange County Accordion Festival, held in conjunction with the Orange County Market Place in Costa Mesa Sunday.

Folks of all ages, sizes and talents stomped their feet, kicked up their legs and swung their partners in Zydeco/Cajun style at the wildly popular musical event.

Grammy Nominee Lisa Haley & The Zydekats brought down the house with their pulsating, rhythmic sounds that captured the spirit of the day and the hearts of onlookers, some of whom leaped up and danced like there was no tomorrow.

Also, "Raving Polka" aka Limpopo, some of whose members got their start in Moscow 23 years ago, showed their pizzazz with dynamic folk music that brought cheers from the overflow crowd. Their dynamic delivery, including Russian dance, brought an electricity to the air that commanded attention. No wonder their music has been featured in major motion pictures and on television.

Great CD
Raving Polka's band members have been around since the early 90's and have played with major actsd all over the United States and Canada at 100's of places including the Kerrville Folk Fest, Bethlehem Music Fest, California World Fest and the Edmonton Folk Fest. You may have heard their music in movies and TV shows like "Euro Trip", "Blade II", "Malcolm In The Middle" and "Armageddon".

Raving Polka was created as a subset of the band Limpopo www.limpopo.com . Limpopo has its origins in Moscow since 1986. This group toured the former Soviet Union performing in some of its more famous theaters. At the peak of Limpopo’s fame there, Yuri & Igor emigrated to the United States with only two of the original cast at his heels. In 1991, Limpopo reformed in the States as a four-member folk and comedy troupe. They were very successful performing for audiences of all ages across Canada and the United States at music and comedy festivals, children’s festivals, clubs, and college campuses. In 1993, they competed on and won the Ed McMahon’s International Star Search band competition. In 1995, they showcased at The National Association for Campus Activities convention in Boston where over 150 colleges signed up to bring the band to their campuses! They were voted by readers of Campus Activities Today magazine as "Best Music Act for 1995". They were nominated for Group of the Year at the 1996 Kerrville Music Awards. They were featured in a long running national TV ad for KIT KAT candy bars which became a tongue-in-cheek anthem for them. L.A.’s number one watched news program, KTLA Morning News, featured a live interview and performance of Limpopo and the Los Angeles Music Center on Tour proudly touts Limpopo as one of their most popular and celebrated artists.

Based in southern California, the "Noize One" album features Lou Fanucchi on Accordion, and vocals in Julida, Dean Roubicek on clarinet & sax, Rasputin on drums, Leo Chelyapov on clarinet - Raving Beer Polka, Hoop-Dee-Doo instrumental and Igor Khramov on trombones, percussion, balalaika, bass balalaika & vocals.

Recorded in 2009, Raving Polka "Noize 1" is a unique album they have dedicated to polka music lovers all over the world. I have heard many many bands do versions of the traditional "Clarinet Polka" and Raving Polka's version (Track #5) compares favorably with any of them, as do Julida, the Raving Beer (Barrel) Polka, Lichtensteiner Polka, Pennsylvania Polka, Hoop Dee Doo, and the Too Fat Polka. I especially like the beginning of the Pennsylvania Polka.

What truly makes this album special however is the way Raving Polka integrates these polka classics with some beautiful waltzes and musettes that truly give the album heart and show off the extraordinary talent this group posesses, especially with their mastering of the accordion. I have listened to Musette A La Mode, the California Waltz, and Domino over and over again. These are truly beautiful tracks and I am sure I will listen to them hundreds of more times. Along the same lines, there are tracks at the Raving Polka Myspace site www.myspace.com/ravingpolka that are not included on the Noize One album. 2 songs of note that you should check out there are outstanding accordion/background versions of the Christmas classics White Christmas and Let It Snow.

Getting back to the Noize One album, Hoop Dee Doo is featured 3 times on this album, first on track #3 with a very interesting, funny and unique vocal, then on track 11, the "Hoop Dee Doo Instrumental" and then in the Siberian Popurry Medley. Myself, I would have skipped the instrumental version as it doesn't compare to the other 2, but then maybe they had some hidden purpose for the track that I don't know about.

My absolute favorite song on the album is the last track #16 "Siberian Popurry", appropriately titled since it is a medley of many of the other songs on the album including Hoop Dee Doo, Raving Beer (Barrel) Polka, Pennsylvania Polka, Pennsylvania Polka and She's Too Fat For Me among others. it very well covers some of the biggest hits polka in a perfect blend.
