The dual accordions of Lawrence Welk & Myron Floren (1955)
Video Rating: 4 / 5
Mahtava meininki !
This is not recommended music to listen to while on LSD
1955!… Amazing!.. That’s just 10 years after the collapse of the Third Reich, when Welk fled to Strasburg, North Dakota, to be hidden with other nazi war-criminals who found refuge in America’s “Little Germany”.
If you check-out the 2nd left trumpet player, I think I recognize Oberführer Klaus Schtinkel of the Waffen SS—”The Butcher of Bialystok”—who was later extradited to Israel and hung for his appalling crimes.
Incredible & historically important footage – thanks so much for posting!
WOW,this is great music
Why are we fighting for? Don’t ask me I don’t give a damn. Next stop is vietnam.
I was forced to watch the show in the early 70′s as a kid and hated it…….now as an adult I love it. go figure.
I watched the Lawrence Welk Show with my family when I was little. I loved it then, and almost 60 years later I still do!
All The Stars to Lawrence welk
“Welcome to Hell. Here is your accordion”
Not exactly Kid Ory, but not too bad.
classic lw at it’s best!
jaja que cancion tan simpatica
There is no one that enjoyed his work or craft as much as the great Lawrence Welk, just look at his face while he is playing, he was truly a one of a kind genius!
Very Nice – Lawrence sure had a lot of showmanship!!!
@steventhestudent Thats cause he’s stoned. He actually hit the “Chronic” pipe before going on the air.
reminds me or polka music on acid…LOL
Oh LW, you are soooo HOT! I bet the women swooned hearing that SEXY accordion and threw their panties at you!!
@steventhestudent Because he’s a JAMF!!!!!
why does lawrence welk make that strange face as he plays?
Ah! No wonder there’s no stars sewn on their coats.
OK, you’re on the shrooms again, right?
You know… I love this stuff more than any other music… and I still am a Slayer fan… hmmm…. there is nothing better for the soul than LW. It is a shame when people cannot see that.
This is the worst and corniest shit ive ever heard.
@mpgxprs —True or False–Lawrence Welk, for allhis good business ans marketing sense, was not all that great a musician? Maybe he never learned the bass side of the accordion all that well, but was able to “wing it” on the keyboard? What do you think?
