    I give up!
    Might as well get a new instrument.
    This one is gone.
    It will break
    into thousands
    of pieces
    when it hits.
    It's slowing down!
    Amazing! A miracle! Safe at last!
    Amazing! A miracle! Safe at last!

    Endorsement by a satisfied customer:

    Henry Doktorski is not just an accordion player but Master of the Accordion; I have presumed to designate him as such in consideration of his scrupulous solicitation and research of material for my 50th birthday dinner in September 2005. While this was a short one-hour engagement, his preparation for it included considerable advance work in not only identifying music of mutual interest but then tracking down the relevant sheet music. End result: among other praises heaped upon him, a friend commented that he had not heard Ukrainian folk melodies since his visit to Moscow in 1973.

    If you want background music, hire an accordionist. To take it to the next level, a Master of the Accordion does not just play what he knows but expands his own horizons, and in so doing brings a grateful audience along.
