The accordion is sometimes an obnoxious sounding instrument. So people will say, “Do you play that chanky-chank music, that old style music?” I took that and said, “Yeah, we do that, and we’re really proud that we do.” We don’t mind, like a friend of mine says, “It doesn’t matter if you’re old and ugly. Just be old and ugly and you’ll be fine.” Don’t try and be anything else. So, the chanky-chank, that’s what we call our music. That’s what we like. It’s not for everybody, but it’s definitely for us.
