• PIANO 
    • no explanation needed, is there?
  • TWO different types of ACCORDION 
    • (a) one with a piano keyboard, known as the "piano-accordion", and
    • (b) the other with a European button-system keyboard, known as the "chromatic system accordion".  The Russian version of this is called the "bayan".  Playing all of them equally well, he is able to incorporate  each or all of them into any situation, suitable for that special occasion, with styles ranging from jazz to classical to international ethnic genres. 

JON PERSSON has appeared aboard 40 luxury ships, on a dozen top-tier cruise lines, traveling to over 100 countries.  Whether as a cabaret performer or a classical artist, as soloist or ensemble player, he has entertained North American, British, German, Argentinian, Brazilian, Japanese, and Chinese audiences, just to name a few. 

Jon spent 4 years at Walt Disney World / EPCOT as the very first featured performer at the World Showcase Norway Pavilion.  He also appeared with classically trained opera singers performing at Universal Studios Portofino Italian Hotel / Mama Della's Ristorante and playing solo accordion at the Italian-themed restaurant at Disney Springs, Maria & Enzo's Ristorante.

Family-friendly, age-appropriate entertainment can be difficult to find nowadays, as most entertainment is aimed exclusively for audiences 15-40 years old.  Jon has given a lot of consideration into providing suitable entertainment for audiences of all ages.  In doing so, he divides his time between being a soloist, and in appearing in a variety of different ensembles.  These groups range from virtuoso classical musicians and opera singers, to Broadway vocalists, to Russian, Gypsy, Scandinavian, and other international folkloric music/dance ensembles.
