Award-winning accordionist and educator Dallas Vietty is one of the most in-demand young accordionists performing jazz and swing in the United States today. Dallas' unique style comes from his background in the American jazz tradition, as well as deep study and immersion in the European swing tradition of Django Reinhardt (Gypsy Jazz) and the French musette and jazz accordionists.

As band leader of three groups (Hot Bijouxx, Musette Project, Tempus Fugit) Dallas remains very active on the East Coast concert and festival scene. His groups have performed at some of the top festivals: Djangology NYC, TEDx Philly, Djangoary Festival, to name a few. As a sideman his performances have taken him to legendary venues such as The Iridium Jazz Club NYC, BB King's Time Square, The Highline Ballroom NYC, Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall Philadelphia.
For Dallas, performing and educating stand together as two parts of a whole. Since 2011, Dallas has been conducting workshops and publishing educational materials and events for the American Accordion Musicological Society, American Accordionists' Association, Washington Metropolitan Accordion Society, and many more groups. Dallas has been invited 4 consecutive years as teaching artist at the internationally renowned Django in June summer Gypsy Jazz intensive. In early 2013, Dallas founded the popular online teaching platform which has educated and provided private accordion instruction to scores of students across the US, Canada, Germany and Australia. With his breadth of professional workshops and online presence, he has arisen as a foremost expert in the realm of Gypsy Jazz for piano accordion.

Growing up in Southern California's Mojave desert, Dallas showed a proclivity for music at a young age. He began as a jazz pianist, starting private instruction at 12, and spent several summers at the famous Idyllwild Summer School for the Arts. At California State University Northridge, Dallas pursued Jazz Studies, and performed throughout the LA metro area, Hawaii, and Japan. But piano was soon superseded by a passion for accordion. Dallas moved to the East Coast and fortified his independent education at New Jersey's Acme Accordion School, studying fundamental technique and Free Bass education. Dallas continued his accordion education with Roberto Cassan (Boston) in technique and expression, and with Grammy Award winning accordionist Victor Prieto on contemporary Jazz, Classical accordion and extended techniques.
