Review by Michael H.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 25, 2023From Glenview, IL

Arkady is a very talented accordian player, who could take requests from attendees at the party to play polkas and other songs that were Polish, Slovenian, German, Italian, Irish and on and on. People had so much fun with laughter and tears as they had fun in the moment and remembered past times and loved ones. Arkady read the crowd well and supported their energy. It was a great time!
