Bill kennewick Accordionist
Bill Kennick (2018)
Below are some videos on Youtube. Some of these are really bad. but in some cases I am experimenting with overdubbing Piano, Bass and Accordion. Things will get even worse when I attempt to sing like Nat King Cole. The point of these is to get over the stage fright of being recorded.
The Horoscope site will be down for a few months until I can set up a new server.
Cheers,

 General Thoughts:
 It was easy to get to your place in Brooklyn, NY once I got my EZ-pass. I got off the Verrazano Bridge at 92nd Street and went a few blocks to your place at 94th and 3rd Avenue. I ended up parking on Shore Drive and walking 4 blocks. Very clean upscale neighborhood. Lots of restaurants on 3rd Avenue. I ended up getting only a bagle, but then again I was nervous, this being my first gig in NY-NY.

 I should have played (maybe next time): September Song -Kurt Weill Mack the Knife- Kurt Weill Lotte Lenya Crazy- Willie Nelson I Fall to Pieces- Patsy Kline Who's Got the Last Laugh Now? -Gershwin, Fred Astaire, Sinatra Jazz and Broadway classics including more Nat King Cole, Harold Arlin, Cole Porter etc.

 The trouble was that I needed a better light over my music stand in order to make out the more complicated jazz chords. I have already ordered new lamps from Sam Ash so we will see.

 When I was younger, say 50 years ago, I had better eyesight (and more hair) but I hadn't been burned by life and love to the extent I have now. True I had some wistful desire to be "The Fool on the Hill" but (neither) I (nor McCartney) understood everything that that entailed. Too soon old and too late smart, as they say back where I come from.

 So anyway,irregardless and irrespective, a lot of these tunes do play pretty well on accordion. And yes, I forgot to mention, I did play "Lady of Spain".
