Excelsior van Damme

Exclusive legendary model of Excelsior made only to order. The Van Damme played by many Jazz Artists all over the world.

Art Van Damme was asked:
Have you always played the Excelsior Accordion?

Answer:
The first accordion that was ever bought for me in 1937 was an Excelsior and I played this accordion until 1945. When the Excelsior people in New York saw me playing the Excelsior accordion on NBC, they offered me a contract and they made me a model with an extended keyboard. Only for a short period, I also played another brand of accordion, but basically I can say, that I have played all my life the same brand.

 

Art on his 81st birthday performing a quartet concert in Detroit USA in 2001. Notice the wrist band he got after a game of golf that afternoon, but the show must go on. Art VanDamme is credited with single-handedly diversifying the repertoire of the accordion at a time when its popularity was restricted to polkas and folk music. His career includes a 15 year stint at NBC Chicago, numerous LP recordings, and extensive nightclub work and concert appearances throughout the USA and Europe.
