Album Notes
Join the Café Accordion Orchestra for a musical cruise with ports of call in France, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and the USA.

Imagine yourself at a sidewalk café in some romantic locale, sipping a glass of wine or a cup of espresso, contemplating that one true love. But don't be surprised if you suddenly feel like dancing!

On their second release, "On Holiday", Cafe Accordion Orchestra continues to play the special blend of French Musette, vintage swing, Latin and European dance music that has made them perennial concert and dance hall favorites.

Of "On Holiday", The Minneapolis Star Tribune says "Café Accordion Orchestra is a dance band for people who still love to waltz and rhumba, an old-school combo. Led by the quietly dazzling Dan Newton, this quintet knows the value of understatement, warmth, discretion, subtlety and easy and genuine swing - not the zoot-suited kids' cliché that's all the rage. They'll make your toes tap, your eyes twinkle and your heart long for a shipboard romance...".

And Minnesota Daily says "On Holiday will make you feel like dancing -- and not just in that hip, zoot suit kind of way."

Jeanine Seymore

I absolutly fell in love with this cd. I am afraid I might wear it out because I play it constantly. The music puts me in a quaint little French cafe one minute, and riding in a gondola down a narrow Italian canal the next. I love it!!

Laura Cox

I can't stop listening to it!
Every song is a winner, but track 10, Histoires d'Amour is worth the price of the cd alone! This is the perfect music for every occasion. A must have for accordion lovers!

Bob Speakman

Tres Bon!
I love it and have played it for french speaking friends
who get misty every time they hear it! Too bad the group is so far away from Ontario. I would love to hear you live!

Unique and sunny tunes for a happy day
I think this CD has moved into my CD player to stay. I love it! It's so unique and different from most music available today. It has a sort of vintage optimism that I find irresistible. I like the varied styles of music, ranging from Gypsy musettes to latin boleros and cumbias. I can't wait to show this off at a jet-setting retro style party!


Perfect for a vacation by the sea!!
Pack this terrific cd right after the swimsuit, (alright, leave the swimsuit home!!)....this music goes perfectly with any trip to turquoise water....we took ours to St. Barths!! Poolside, everyone starts asking, "What is that fabulous cd??". Of course, the ones "in the know" recognize it immediately!! And we start comparing notes on where we've taken our Cafe Accordion cds....Capri, Mykonos, get the idea. And then when you get home, you can pop it into your headset down at the neighborhood pool....and deja vu all over again!!! Thanks, Cafe Accordion Orchestra for letting us bring the vacay home!!! xoxo, J.


Sunny and happy
Great music for the backround at work ore at home. It's sounds SO happy, you can see the sun shine at a french café terras.

You Just Have To Dance.....
The music takes you to other places. The first time I listened to it, I swooped my cat up and danced with him!
