Video: Blue Moon Masquerade with Squeeze & Thanks

You might remember accordionist Denny Kremblas (Squeeze & Thanks) from this video that we featured back in July. While the cultural community has been laying low due to COVID, a number of artists and musicians got together for a socially distanced Halloween “bash” at Elk Tree Gardens & Castle to blow off some steam.

The result is some awesome modern day accordion performance, along with guest musicians, some fab costumes, in a church setting unlike any other in WNY.

“When we walked into the church we immediately knew it was going to be a night for the books,” said Kremblas. “You could see all the hard work of everyone coming together and it took everything to the next level. The lighting. The cameras. All the action and all the moving pieces that lined up just right. It was a perfect backdrop to Halloween party straight out of a movie.”

Could there be any better use for Buffalo churches, than to convert them into cultural centers? This conversion to a music-oriented gathering place is a huge win for the city – an achievement that is still flying under the collective radar of its residents.


Pairing his filmmaking background with his love for the accordion, Denny & his friends bring you the craziest accordion music videos the internet has ever seen. Blending genres of modern American pop music with a forgotten instrument, we aim to introduce the accordion to new generations through familiar top hits of today.
