Welcome to Bradford Accordion Band


BRADFORD ACCORDION BAND is a unique and diverse musical group whose mission is to make great music whilst having fun! Our membership comprises  accordion players from the age of 25 to 85 – both amateur and professional.  BAB’s repertoire is wide-ranging and includes classics, music from the shows, pop, rock, folk and accordion originals. We perform at venues throughout Yorkshire and pride ourselves on giving a lively show. More recently, we have introduced a percussion section and a small number of alternative wind instruments to complement our sound.

A note from our Musical Director, Anita Bašić :

”A very warm welcome to BAB’s website. Following the band’s formation in 1997, I am thrilled to say that we are still ‘squeezing together’ as enthusiastically as ever! BAB’s mission has always been to promote the image of ‘our’ accordion as both a flexible and fun instrument; one that has the potential to bring people together, regardless of age, culture or experience. During these unprecedented times, BAB continues to meet on Zoom, so please contact us here, should you wish to join our temporarily virtual and vibrant BAB-family.”
