Add to this the sultry voice of our own 'jazz singer' and you've got the most versatile swing sound on the seacoast.


Our extensive repertoire of over 600 songs is sure to accommodate even the most discriminating ballroom dancer. We play swing, dance, latin, polka, waltzes as well as those room-filling big band tunes that get your blood pumping!

GARY SREDZIENSKI & THE SERFS!

DANCE PARTY

The Serfs have been delighting audiences for 20 years with their unique blend of instruments and musical genres. One of the earliest objectives of the band was to elevate the much maligned image of the piano accordion.  Not dwelling upon one genre of music, the Serfs draw from a wide variety of traditional world music styles and its own compositions to cross boundaries and elevate the accordion's image to a diverse multicultural vocalist.
