DAVE LAING Ballroom Orchestra The literal meaning of the term 'ballroom orchestra' an orchestral ensemble performing music for dancing in a ballroom - is frequently nuanced to refer to the provision of music for a distinct set of couple dances, among which the 'modern' waltz, fox trot and quickstep are prominent.

Although accordions with a piano keyboard had first appeared around the 1850s, it was not until the 1890s that the modern piano accordion with Stradella bass and reed ranks with couplers was developed, largely by Italian manufacturers. The early twentieth century saw the emergence of popular theatrical players who demonstrated publicly the power and musical versatility of the instrument. By the late 1920s, its popularity was burgeoning in both amateur and professional use, in Europe, Britain and the United States, and subsequently throughout the world.
