Passing of a legend !

Post by EMan » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:48 pm

Dick Contino passed yesterday ! Sad - one of the truly great accordionists and showmen ! His music and showmanship style will be missed.

It's sad when these big names pass. What they did has fed what we do today. I wasn't as familiar with some of the names from the other side of the Atlantic till I learned from this forum. He's certainly giving it some in that video!
