Sonz and I accomplished a long-time goal on Sunday: we finally made it to the Main Squeeze Orchestra's
What is the Main Squeeze Orchestra? you may be asking. Oh, just the Western World's Only 14 piece All-Female All-Accordion Orchestra. Just that.
In between songs, each girl shared how she had come to join the orchestra. It seems that most of them were strong-armed into it by the orchestra's founder, an irascible German named Walter - owner of Main Squeeze Accordions on the Lower East Side - who conducts shop business with a Guinness in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
What a wonderful world.
