About
The Swedish Meatballs...... formed like a recipe (little bit of this and a dash of that) with all musicians blended together to create delicious music. Whether you just need an accordion or a full band, Ellen "Sqweezer" and main meatball will work with your budget. Toe-tapping, foot-stomping, heart-touching music! Accordion, rhythm, saxophone, drums...lots of rhythm & music!

Sqweezing and pleasing the sweet sounds of the accordion through the air to make a success of YOUR affair! Ellen, also known as "The Swedish Meatball" is of Scandinavian background adding lovely European tunes to her repertoire of eclectic Scandinavian/American accordion folk music. And it doesn't stop there...Italian, Latin, German and Irish music too!

NYC to Long Island up to the Adirondacks to Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Northern Pennsylvania down to Philadelphia and Maryland ... wherever & whenever accordion music is longed for and in demand. Whether on stage, at a festival, dance hall, restaurant/tavern ... or a lovely backyard or front porch, The Swedish Meatballs entertain all with pleasing melodic accordion tunes. Ellen gets the audience up to participate in circle dances and runs fun-filled games accompanied by music. Performance locations include: IKEA stores, South Street Seaport, Circle Line, The Swedish Museum, Scandinavian Festivals, street fairs, restaurants/yacht clubs, churches, nursing homes, Sons of Norway / Scandinavian lodge events, Oktoberfest celebrations ... and lovely home parties.

The Swedish Meatballs go the extra SMILE! ;)

Love Love Loved them. So polite, accommodating, professional, and most of all.... FUN. I want to have another party just so I can have them play. I was a nervous hostess and Ellen put me at ease and did everything she promised and more. I can't thank them enough for entertaining my guests and ensuring everyone had a fun fun time. Highly recommend!

The Swedish Meatballs are talented, professional, fun and extremely accommodating to the needs of both the host and guests. They kept the party fun requiring minimal-to-nil guidance. I will hire them for all future events in which I'm looking for German entertainment. AWESOME!
