Accordion-wielding musician returns to Cleveland.


Five months after debuting his “squeeze rock” to a Barking Spider audience, New York accordionist Julz A returns tonight. And he’s pretty sure he likes Clevelanders more than he does the folks at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theatre, where he was booed off the stage in November. “Every time someone tells me I’m not good enough,” says the guy who was born Julian Hintz, “I get an intense drive to prove them wrong.”

Julz says his blend of accordion-fueled rock and hip-hop songs are inspired by oddballs like Beck and OutKast. He plans to give the Apollo crowd another dose of his music sometime soon. “I have an audience there to show how much the accordion rocks,” insists Julz.
