Accordion Adventures: Mario Cuomo

Posted by Peter Monticup on 4/10/2020 to Monticup's Music 7 Comments

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...

Accordion Adventures: The Giuletti

Posted by Peter Monticup on 4/10/2020 to Monticup's Music 4 Comments

INSTALLMENT #1 (yes, there's more!)

When I was seven years old, my parents bought this Giuletti accordion for me. I could barely hold it up!
Within a few years, I could play well enough to perform in public.
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...
