The Club

A very warm welcome to our Accordion Club, located in Norwich, Norfolk, a beautiful city in East Anglia, England. The club consists of about 25 members playing two groups 'The Band' and 'The Troshers'. We all enjoy playing the instrument in our groups, entertaining and taking part in festivals.

The Band

Norwich Accordion Club
Adrian Crotch (MD)

The Band is an intermediate/advanced accordion group with 13 players including a drummer. We play orchestrated band music, much of it arranged by Royston Herbert, a former Musical Director.

 

Adrian Crotch is now our Musical Director and with his enthusiasm and extensive experience of the Accordion, he now ably leads us with a repertoire spanning a wide range of styles from classical and folk to show tunes and popular music. He is happy to tailor our concerts to your requirements.

 

Being a more advanced group, it is ideal for musicians with existing musical experience who want to play music as part of a vibrant, dynamic band.

The Band


The Troshers

A mixed ability Accordion group focused on providing support for beginners and those just starting out on their Accordion career or who prefer a more relaxed pace. It started as a beginners' group in 1990 and now consists of 17 members. We also have a wide range of tunes on offer, with sing-a-longs being popular favourites.
 
We pride ourselves on being a friendly and approachable group and we are always looking for new players to swell our numbers in both groups.

 

If you can read music and have a basic knowledge of the accordion or piano please come along. And you never know, you may just fall in love with the Accordion as all our members have done! We have some instruments available for low-cost hire to get you started.

The Troshers



The club has had several exchange visits with Lorenskog Accordion Club in Norway attended by members of both groups. This is the opening piece played by the band at a combined concert held there. Mit Harmonika Gruss - 'An Accordion Welcome'
