THE AARON DUSSING BAND
Ever since his German grandparents introduced him to ethnic music at a young age, Aaron has always carried on the musical traditions of his family. He sings in seven languages, specializes in authentic Alpine yodeling, and can play a wide range of 20 different musical instruments, but accordion is his instrument of choice on stage. Though they specialize in German music, they are happy to play other European music, as well as American standards, Jazz, and Rock.
