It sounds like the Mrs. earned her keep that day! :D I guess that's why wives are called "our better halves." ;)

All this talk about headphone jacks, plugging things in and unplugging things sounds so strange to me.

I played the accordion professionally for several years and can't ever remember anything that needed to be removed from my accordion, with the exception of the bellows straps, or any power outages that prevented me from completing a performance.  I've even played in candlelight and in complete darkness too.   ;D  ;D  ;D  ;)

For a while I played a Roland FR18 Diatonic button accordion.

It sounded really good but it needed a mains supply and an amp.
I sold it because it felt really awkward with the two cables seemingly everywhere LOL

I didn't play it professionally --or well for that matter  ;D
All the Best

 Roger,
                  I remember years ago up in the country, our dance halls had petrol or diesel generators, so sometimes it would break down plunging everything into darkness.  Then someone would drive their car up to the open side door with the headlights allowing the dance to continue, great fun. No electric music back in those days.
      Ahhh, for the good old days.

               Cheers,    Alan

Hi Alan,

Yes, the Good Old Days is right.  I attended and performed at a lot of barn dances years ago that used nothing but kerosene lanterns for light.  Some of the younger members here may think you and I lived in the Dark Ages...LOL!!!   ;)
