FRIDAY AUGUST 12 06:30 PM
AT RIVERFEST - RIVERSIDE PARK- MAIN STAGE
Danny Jerabek (button accordion, keys, percussion, vocals, cornet, sousaphone, etc.) and his wife, Michelle (Thull) Jerabek (bari saxophone, vocals, guitar, percussion, etc.) both started performing with their family on stage at an early age. Once in their teens, they crossed paths again and eventually realized they were meant to be together. They married, started writing songs, and formed a band and the rest is history! Also, along the way they had 3 children, too!! The current line up includes the highly regarded talents of Dan Cable (drums & percussion) & Dave Chyla(bass), with frequent guest appearances by Drew Hicks(bass & vocals) and Aaron Zepplin(guitar).
Danny Jerabek was given an accordion from his grandfather at age 9 and taught himself how to play it. Inspired by Steve (Esteban) Jordan, "the Jimi Hendrix of Tejano Accordion" he began to "rock out" and improvise –thinking a little more, "outside the box." He has been featured at the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio, TX and the National Accordion Festival in Houston, TX and the Cotati Accordion Festival in Cotati, CA, and has been featured on national TV. In 2015, Danny accepted an Artist Endorsement deal with Hohner Accordions, INC.
