Accordion Adventures: Mario Cuomo

INSTALLMENT #2 (and keep looking, there's more!)

Back in the 1980s, when I lived in upstate New York, I performed a lot for Gov. Mario Cuomo.
I performed my magic at everything from small cocktail parties to major arena events.
Over the years, Gov. Cuomo and I developed a friendship based on our pride in NY State and the fact that we saw each other so much.
We also had a shared background- it seems our ancestors came from the same region in Italy.
In fact, Gov. Cuomo joked that we looked alike (though he always added that he was the handsome one).

Let me tell you about the time Gov. Cuomo sang O SOLO MIO while I played the accordion...

Not only did I play at the many family gatherings my Italian family had, but I also found myself playing at many interesting events!

Let me tell you about some of my unusual (and funny) adventures...
