What happens when accordion music meets eighties Euro disco? Answer: Microwaved dance music that will get your head bobbing, and laser and video displays that will blow your mind. Featuring music by Bad Boy Blue, Modern Talking, Aha, Alphaville, Fancy, and the Pet Shop Boys. Teemu Haapaniemi has wowed audiences with his accordion since 1983. He is constantly seeking new ways to play and to use the accordion in his show.
