Michael Schaeffer is an accordion player based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Michael purchased his first accordion in 2001 after dreaming that he was playing a bellowed instrument in a dark room. Now, Michael specializes in playing Italian, French, and tango music, along with his own original compositions.
Why the Accordion?
The accordion is essentially a one-man band. It is portable and extremely versatile, covering a vast repertoire of music styles, including jazz, tango, waltz, polka, samba, beguine or any other genre of music you can imagine.
