Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Win an Acadian accordion today !

Well, I did manage to drop a $150 in CDs, a T-shirt and a really cool white accordion strap. The CD selection is small but very deep. I found discs that I've been looking high and low for. That alone was worth the trip — not to mention the jam of about 15 musicians was quite good... until it ended exactly at 11:59 and the place was vacant by 12:02. That was... amazing? I guess... I'll go back there for more CDs. Oh, and free boudin. Forgot to mention that. ~RR

For your INFO, Savoy Music Center is 21 miles from my home and it was established in 1960. Killer jams every Sat. a.m. when Marc is in town.

Hey, Didn't Weird Al Yancovic win that in 2000?LOL

Re: Win an Acadian accordion today !

GO to www.savoymusiccenter.com and click on WRITINGS. Read all of the Writings, in particular, AN INTERVIEW WITH MYSELF. That will give you a better understanding of Mr. Savoy.

Re: Re: Win an Acadian accordion today !

I don't think I have the stomach for it. Maybe after a six pack or two.

Re: Win an Acadian accordion today !

Everyone needs to visit Savoy Music Center one Saturday morning at 9:00 for the weekly jam session, meet Marc in person and judge for themselves.

For those people interested in Cajun music and videos, the absolute best place to shop is Floyd's Record shop in Ville Platte, La www.floydsrecordshop.com They are celebrating 50 years in business in 2006. Hands down, Floyd's has the best selection and if they don't have it, they can get it for you.

Re: Re: Win an Acadian accordion today !

I totally agree with cajungreeneyes. Over the years, Floyd's has kept me well-stocked for my radio show. Ramona at Floyd's online store will do everthing possible to get you what you are looking for. Beyond that, the turnaround time on an order is usually 2-3 days by mail -- or instant gratification when dropping in the Ville Platte store (after a lunch at Pig Stand!) If you drop in, ask for Cecil. He's a super nice guy and has been building quality accordions in the back of the store. It's all good...
