Len Wallace performs on EXCELSIOR ACCORDIONS, head office in Italy.
"I’ve played many types of accordions and Excelsior’s have the best feel, best tonal qualities. I’m still performing with the model my parents bought for me back in 1964. I wouldn’t part with it for the world.”

There is now a new Excelsior store in Burlington, Ontario - Accordions Exclusively - Excelsior Sales & Service which carries all models. Technicians are factory trained by Excelsior Accordions in Italy.

Accordions have been given a bad rap by cultural barbarians. Accordion Players, ARISE! Take that old squeezebox out of the closet. The word is that today accordions are COOL!
Closet Accordion Players of America (CAPA) is an organization that believes accordionists who can laugh at themselves are more likely to be taken seriously when they go on to point out what a wonderful instrument the accordion really is. CAPA uses humor to get attention, and, once they have people's attention, they go on to make serious points about the accordion.
Len Wallace is also a member of the CANADIAN ACCORDION ASSOCIATION (ONTARIO) trying to bring accordionists together for the appreciation of the instrument. You can join up by contacting PO Box 85400 Burlingtom, Ontario, Canada L7R 4K5. Or email Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership is $35 per year.
