Welcome to the National Accordion Convention:
Bruce Dunai says:,
    "The accordionists look forward to any of your organization members that would like to mingle with outstanding accordionists to join us and expose our members to the facets of your respective organizations."
Norman Seaton (CEO) and Rick Custer (Convention Coordinator) are saying:
    We want area musicians to become a significant part in our Lewisville-based accordion convention. Since the pandemic, the accordion has become an exceedingly popular musical instrument worldwide. This time, the popularity of the accordion is known as both a solo instrument but also compatible when played with other musical instruments, whether it be as a duo, trio, or a small band.

    The National Accordion Association (NAA) is honored that Bruce Dunai has stepped forward to serve as a contact coordinator among the various musical organizations.
Financial Obligations for Non-registered Conventioneers:

  • Non-accordionists are invited to participate in the noon events and preplanned jam sessions at no charge, but you must buy your own lunch.
