January - April

2009 found us travelling and playing around Anchorage and across the US. Our first performance was for an Aurora Elementary School event where Theresa is the librarian, followed by our 15 minutes of fame at the Anchorage Folk Festival. We were also invited to play for a Shriners dinner fundraiser and a Valentine's dance.


We began the summer by playing at the Chugiak Senior Center Carnival in mid-May and then we traveled to Bessemer Pennsyvalnia to participate in the National Button Accordion Festival over Memorial Day weekend.


June was a busy month. We played at a 45th wedding anniversary in Nikiski and some of us continued on to Homer and played at Karacters Bar. One weekend at the end of the month we played at the Anchorage Pioneer Home Father's Day Celebration, Daybreak's Summer Solstice Party, the Anchorage Saturday Market and a post-wedding celebration in Palmer!

July - September

July was our slow month! We began the month on a float for the Anchorage Fourth of July Parade and won a 2nd place trophy! We ended the month playing for a crowd of over 300 at Loussac Library's Live at the Library Series.
