Hell's Bellows

Seattle quartet Hell's Bellows are the local answer to the Accordion Tribe. The 4 excellent musicians - Amy Denio, Marchette DuBois, Eli Kaufman and Scott Adams - are all well known and well regarded music makers, music teachers, instrument builders and multi-instrumentalists. A few times a year, when they all find themselves in the same city, they come together and make strange and beautiful sounds as an accordion quartet. The music they play can range from original suites to wild covers of popular songs, always weirdly inventive and wildly entertaining.

We have two chances to see Hell's Bellows this week before they once again dissolve into the ether. On Thursday, January 14, Hell's Bellows will play a 30 minute set at the Northwest Accordion Society Social. At Trinity Lutheran Church, 12115 Park Avenue South in Tacoma. Tickets are $5 at the door.

On Friday, January 15, they play a full length show at Cafe Racer, 5828 Roosevelt Way Northeast. All ages and no cover charge!
