David Austin

The son of an accordionist, David Austin began playing accordion at the age of 10.  At age 12, he began performing alongside his father, Mike, in the Russ Wilson Band of Wisconsin, an experience which lasted until he was 20.  From 1996 to 2001 Austin performed and traveled with the Roger Bright Band from New Glarus, Wisconsin.  All this time, he had an interest in the recording process, created his own studio in which he recorded three of his own records. In addition to performing with the IMSPB, Austin has his own group, the Dave Austin Band, and is a member of several polka bands. He has been featured on the recordings of Bob Kravos, Mike Schneider and Walter Ostanek.
