Mr. Wise founded "Accordions for Kids/U.S.A." He and his wife, DeAnn, have hosted numerous accordion events and functions, including clubs, accordion repair work shops, concerts and socials at the Accordy-Inn, Burr Hill, Virginia, where they reside. Jim Rice started to play the box before he was ten at his dad's insistence. After his graduation at Virginia Tech, Class of 71' Jim was commissioned into the U.S. Army where he squeezed his way through the States, Germany and Korea over the next 21 years. Jim met Dale upon his retirement by responding to a yellow pages "accordion repair" ad. This spawned a lasting friendship. Mr. Rice continues to play, sing, teach, and promote the lost art of the box in Williamsburg, Virginia where he and his wife Donna live. Jim currently squeezes at a Williamsburg Italian restaurant as well as at his church and within the local public schools. Jim and his wife Donna are active secondary school educators. We, the Wise Guys "Squeeze to Please" because "Music is a SOUND Investment." Sincerely, Dale and Jim The Wise Guys.
