Welcome to my not-so-secret Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band music page.  This page is dedicated to one of the best party bands to ever grace the Kansas City scene.  I've been a fan ever since catching them live at the Hurricane and Kiki's Bon Ton Maison back in the day.  As you know it is impossible to find these wonderful, fantastic grooves either in stores or on-line.  The only reason these albums are here is to keep their music alive.  Enjoy the creative and highly talented Bon Ton naughtiness.  Spread the word!

*** At no time should the albums found here be downloaded and resold.  GIFT THIS MUSIC ONLY! ***

NOTE:  The band reformed in 2014 and plays once again!  They sound as good (if not better) than you remember!  Check out their Facebook page for scheduled performances!

Recorded at the Station Casino 2/24/97, this album is a straight feed from the sound board.  It appears there is some type of noise reduction similar to Dolby B or C on several songs.  There are no liner notes or album artwork available.  Due to the large file sizes, the album is split into two zip files above. (Feb. 2015)

The Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band - Ain't No Zydeco But It's Something Else

This is a pristine vinyl LP digitized at a high bit-rate.  Scanned LP album cover and liner notes are included in the zip file. (July 2013)

 The Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band - Taint Nuthin' But A Party

This album is a digital recording of an original Bon Ton-produced cassette tape.  There is no EQ manipulation or tape hiss reduction.  The only enhancement was to clean up the "silence" between tracks.  That's it.

Scanned cassette tape liner notes are included in the zip file.  (March 2012)

The Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band - Dirt Muffin

This album is a digital copy from an original CD. It was provided by a member of the Bon Ton Yahoo Group.  This is a flawless recording.

The Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band - We Only In It For The Monkey

This album is a digital recording of an original Bon Ton-produced cassette tape.  There is no EQ manipulation or tape hiss reduction.  The only enhancement was to clean up the "silence" between tracks.

NOTE:  The original cassette tape and casing were damaged at some point in the past.  Track 02 - I Ain't Gonna Go has a small amount of tape flutter at the beginning of the song. 

Scanned cassette tape liner notes are included in the zip file.  (March 2012)

The Bon Ton Soul Accordion Band - Live At Last 

This album is a digital copy from a copied CD I purchased from the Music Exchange in Westport (KCMO).  I'm guessing this is a digital copy of a cassette tape and is a very good recording.  Zip file contains all music as well as CD cover and insert (average quality) as well as a full scan of the cassette tape insert.  (March 2012)
