The Year of the Accordion!

From the program:

Another year has come and gone – it seems just yesterday that I was talking to Art Van Damme about forming the Las Vegas International Accordion Convention – that was March of 1998! Art was in large part the reason we are all here today. It was through Art's encouragement that I found the strength to bring together this great event. We are all here to celebrate life and the accordion as a tribute to Art! – Paul Pasquali
