Peoria Area Accordion Club – Chiarugi Stage 3:00PM-7:00PM
The Peoria Area Accordion Club was founded in 1992 by Enrico Mastronardi, who had performed with championship bands at Chicago’s Soldier Field and taught accordion locally prior to his death in 1993. Several of the club’s current members learned from Mastonardi in their younger years. They play songs from the ‘20s, ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s and country and gospel. The club has more than 1,000 songs in its library, and they create a personalized program for each show.
