Steve Jordan is Ailing, the Accordion's Still Wailing

Manuel of Sananto Cultural Arts has let it be known that Steve Jordan is in chemo now and needs a new liver. Manuel's message also notes that "somehow," Jordan played a concert on May at Salute, a hipster venue on the St. Mary's strip. You gotta admire the man's tenacity. Valerio Longoria played right up until the end, and it looks like Jordan's dedication to his art is just as strong. Does anybody remember the low turnout when Jordan played the Texas Union a while ago? I couldn't believe more people on campus didn't come. Those of you who are still in Texas should wish him better health and be sure to catch him again if he's able to play. In the meantime, there are bootleg videos of him on youtube. Thanks to Those Darn Accordions for the image.
