Live music by Under Paris Skies

Under Paris Skies plays music inspired by the sidewalk cafes and cabarets of 1930’s Paris, Gypsy camps, Argentine dance halls and Euro street music. Ron, Steven and Larry are masters of their instruments and together forge a unique blend of accordion, gypsy guitar and upright bass. This talented acoustic trio brings new sounds to the region with their danceable swing and romantic stylings.  Repertoire includes gypsy jazz, vintage swing, tangos, waltzes, boleros, bossas and more.

Under Paris Skies was voted one of the best jazz bands in La Crosse County during this year's Best of La Crosse County 2016: Arts & Entertainment!
