Let us not forget Peewee King. Saw him in concert at my high school late 60’s, Waukesha, Wisconsin.
My parents insisted I go. Ever since then I was countryfied. I think learning country music help me learn how to sing while playing chords and fills on the accordion. Then I would jam with Rockabilly bands, Carl Perkins style.

Interesting what accordion he was playing. Do not know much about it, but was’nt that Dallape? Maybe someone can recognize it?

I guess they did not play the left hand on the accordion. To interfere with bass guitar. This is what made him famous.
