A CELEBRATION OF WALTER KUEHR is one evening of accordion-centric performers paying tribute to the unbelievable life and outsized personality of the “Accordion Evangelist of the Lower East Side” who passed away at the beginning of this year. Join friends and fans as we gather for a musical shindig that would have made the man proud. Featuring Walter’s own bands, the MAIN SQUEEZE ORCHESTRA, THE LAST OF THE INTERNATIONAL PLAYBOYS, as well as friends JOE HURLEY AND THE GENTS, CORN MO & .357 LOVER, bandoneon master JP JOFRE with his NEW TANGO QUINTET, and magician MARCO FREZZA.

Corn Mo and .357 Lover
You’d be forgiven for thinking CORN MO & .357 LOVER were a novelty act, what with their songs about wrestling gods and Gary Busey. But behind the mutton-chops and flashy suitcoats is an infectious performer with a lung-busting vocal style who has worked with the best in the business.
Main Squeeze Orchestra
MAIN SQUEEZE ORCHESTRA is NYC’s all-female squeezebox fantasy brought to life by the “Hugh Hefner of the accordion world”, Walter Kuehr. The band defies nerdy stereotypes of accordion music with a diverse genre-bending repertoire of cool music, and has attracted a dedicated following of fans. In a tribute to our bandleader Walter Kuehr, Main Squeeze Orchestra will be playing a selection of his favorite songs, including a debut performance of a new arrangement that he had in mind for the band.
Joe Hurley and the Gents
Call them stomping, scorching, rollicking or whatever you please, JOE HURLEY AND THE GENTS always deliver a good time. Playing a mix of ballads, cabaret, and rock and roll, the Gents are a New York original with their unique salty-yet-endearing style.
The Last of the International Playboys
Walter’s fellow bandmates from THE LAST OF THE INTERNATIONAL PLAYBOYS will be performing their big band versions of Vegas jazz and Latin lounge including Walter’s own swingin’ compositions.
Magician MARCO FREZZA drove across America completely blindfolded to generate $1,000,000 in publicity for National Foster Care Month. He is funny and amazing.
JP Jofre and the New Tango Quintet
“A 29 year-old bandoneon master” according to the NYTimes, JP JOFRE will bring his soulful and electrifying compositions with his NEW TANGO QUINTET, for a contemporary take on the Tango.
