Rockhen Need help fitting accordion mic NLincsUK (13) Need help fitting accordion mic NLincsUK 01 Apr 11

Apologies if there is a thread for this already, please point me in the right direction if so. I am doing some gigs at which I need to play piano accordion through a PA. I am playing in a duo with a guitarist and am doing harmony vocals as well as playing. I think I need an expert to sort somehow adding mics to my accordion, for me as I want it to work without too much messing about at gigs. I mainly use the treble side but on a few songs, need the bass amplifying too. I have tried playing through a mic on a stand and I can't stand still enough for that to work. Also, if you sing and play both sides you have to have 3 mic stands and that is a nightmare and looks daft.
Ideally I would like to be wire free but I suspect that will cost a lot. Any ideas of places which are helpful, can sort a solution and will charge a fair price? I far prefer just playing acoustic but it is not possible with the numbers of people involved at the gigs we are doing.
