LInda playing the Roland FR7 accordion
Update as of 2011- Linda is alive and well and the music continuing. Using a Roland FR7X V Accordion. The greatest invention since the wheel. Okay that may be a little overboard but I love it. Life goes on. Yeah, that is a song I wrote also. On cdbaby now. Check out Crested Hens. Very haunting. Thanks Ron Lankford.

Now Dancetime With Linda as my love, my friend and partner Roland passed away on October 3, 2007.
Love you Roland!!!!!
The song A Cloud In The Sky is written for you by me, Linda.


Gotta Dance Lively Entertaining Variety Toe Tapping Romantic Melodious

All the above describe the music as played by Dancetime With Linda & Roland. Our duo consists of Linda Herman on Midi Accordion and vocals and Roland Fabbrie on Electronic Drum and vocals. Yes I said the A word - ACCORDION. This is no ordinary accordion however. It is the Roland V Accordion, the latest electronic wonder from the Roland Corp.

Together we have over “125 years” of experience. We always describe our music as “Music for Old People”, however anyone can enjoy our music. We just happen to be considered two old people playing music for ballroom dancing. Ah, but ballroom dancing is for everyone and can be quite demanding on your body. Just ask those appearing on Dancing With The Stars. We know for a fact that dancing keeps you “young”, no matter how old or young you are.

To dance to our music, you will be dancing the foxtrot, swing, rhumba, cha cha, tango, samba, mambo, waltz, country, line dance and even polka. We feature music from the 20's to the present. Sorry, if you are a die hard rock fan you probably won’t be interested in our music. It is not deafening. It does not use four letter words. It is ballroom dance music and easy listening. It has melodies that will linger in your head and will make you want to sing along. It will calm your body. It will bring out that romantic person you really are. You will want to take that special someone in yours arms and glide across the floor.

Just who is Dancetime With Linda & Roland?
Linda Herman, that’s me, is the “head honcho”. I am from Iowa originally. (Oh a four letter word). I have been playing in “dance bands” since I was a teenager in Iowa. I enjoy playing music and making people happy. Dancers are happy, healthy people. I have appeared on the Johnny Carson Show, accompanied variety acts on shows across the country, played on cruise ships and in casinos. I find I enjoy playing music for dancers the most rewarding. Thru the years I have made many lasting friendships. Wow to be able to play music and make a living and make other people happy has to be the ultimate happiness for a person. Some of my other interests are golf, bowling, bicycle riding, red convertibles and just relaxing with my friend, my love and my partner, Roland.

Roland Fabbrie is the promoter, manager and the inspiration behind our duo. He is originally from Toronto Canada. He has been a drummer since a little kid banging on anything he could get is hands on. Most notably he was a drummer with the Queens Own Rifles and Navy Sea Cadet Band. Roland loves to try new ventures and that is how we got in contact with cdbaby and selling our cd’s on the internet. His interests are also golf, bowling, bicycle riding, collecting old vinyl records, red convertibles and just relaxing with me, his friend, his love and his partner.

What is Dancetime with Linda & Roland doing at the present?
You will find us in the Los Angeles area playing our music for various clubs including the San Gabriel Elks every Wednesday afternoon (some 20 years), Leisure World in both Seal Beach and Laguna Woods, 49ers Dance Club in Lancaster, Paramount Dance Club and many birthday and anniversary parties. Our fans are “older” yet dancing keeps young. They are loyal and they are friends. Many are like our extended family. We are also selling our cd’s and downloads at There you can listen to two minutes of each song and get a good idea of our music.
