PSR-740

(May, 2003) I started taking accordion lessons when I was about 10 on an old accordion my Dad had. I started playing weddings, picnics, parties when I was about 15. When I was 18, a bass player I met faked my birth certificate and I went on the road with accordion, bass and guitar. After I got out of the MarineCorp, I went on the road with a country western band of accordion, bass,steel and rhythm guitar. The highlight of that band was we worked on radioand television on WLW, Midwestern Hayride in Cinncinatti, Ohio. Eventually,I played out my career working around Chicago playing dance music in allthe hotels, country clubs, yacht clubs, etc. with a 5-man group of accordion,vibes, clarinet, bass and drums.

I retired from the business and accidentally learned about arranger keyboards and bought a 740, which is what I used on these songs. I have thoroughly enjoyed being involved in the Yamaha groups and look forward to the musical years ahead.-JoeFrancis
