Man carries and plays accordion wherever he goes

What would happen if you walked around playing an accordion all the time, wherever you went? Maybe you should ask Joey "Accordion Guy" Devilla...

"It started off with me and a friend trying our hand at being street musicians, and we soon discovered that neat things happen whenever you take an accordion with you when you go out. Especially when you play songs by Nine Inch Nails, The White Stripes and Fatboy Slim! (As opposed to polkas)

"The accordion has landed me a couple of job offers, (including go-go dancing), gotten many free drinks and picked up a few girls. My life has become a little more interesting and I have learned the value of saying 'yes' when most people would say 'no.'"

Joey also said, "But it's not always easy making people friendlier with something that weighs thirty pounds!"


How do instruments affect approachability?
