His Rock/PopPolka show is filled with comedic exuberance that is highly contagious!
Mostly rock & pop from the '80s, along with POLKA and a few other styles & TV theme
songs - he'll have everyone doing the chicken dance by the end the show. Squeezebox
Hero is likely Las Vegas' most rockin' accordionist, playing lots of rock and pop
not usually associated with the squeezebox. His real name is Botielus, but once this
composer and multi-instrumentalist straps on his axe, he becomes a zany character!
For live concerts, he performs with custom backing tracks he arranged and recorded
himself. But his favorite gig is brightening days (or nights) for folks, with "Squeezagrams"
- modern singing telegrams, with accordion! Easy to order direct from his website
to surprise anyone almost anywhere, they are unique and unforgettable!
Squeezebox Hero has appeared on "America's Got Talent" and other television and radio
shows. He has performed solo and with a variety of bands and tribute shows around
the world. He plays saxophones, synthesizers and keyboards too, but enjoys adding
accordion whenever possible.
He even rents accordions! If you wanna try one out for a month, or need one for just
a day, contact him for a special deal! The squeezebox hero also reluctantly gives
lessons! He has given lessons before to beginners that already know something about
reading music (just need to know how to have fun squeezing the accordion!).
In addition to his Squeezagrams, he loves performing full concerts. Either on stage
or at parties/events. It’s like having Weird Al at your event, but way cheaper! Plus,
the Squeezebox Hero plays LOTS more accordion in his concerts than Al!
Great for almost any location or event, including but not limited to bars, schools,
ski lodges, and even funerals (but only for folks that had/have a great sense of
10/14 just finished rockin’ the Ojai Oktoberfest (in Ojai CA). Super fun oktoberfest,
workers, fans, lots of tips, good beer, SUPER emcee dude (sp?)
9/14 - Played the famous Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood and was on live, national axs
television! Played synths with a tribute band. Rave reviews!
9/14 - played for the super Oregon Cycle event (and separate concert as “Happy Happy
Boy Boy” with the super Tony Dunne!)
7/2/12: Just performed at a great backyard birthday party! What a great and huge
crowd. We even did the Tequila conga. The only bad part was that I was in day 2 of
a cold and my voice was severely limited (at least one octave gone at the top). But
I think that made me even funnier, so I guess good after all :-) I just finished
a new video demo edit of 3 of my concerts using my backing tracks (so I sound like
a band). Really excited about my upcoming concert at Freakin’ Frog on 7/18/12
