Actor, Artist, Composer, Musician


Accordion virtuoso Del Riviera (real name: David Roundell) once toured in a 50-piece accordion band playing two solo numbers, “Lady of Spain” and “Moon River.” That was just one of many unusual stages Riviera’s career has taken. The 65-year-old Powell River resident has spent his life in show business, as an actor, vaudevillian, street performer, jazz improviser, and composer. He is best known around town as an accordion player and member of Slim Milkie Band.
