Our musicians

John Kolbrich

Meet John Kolbrich (Hans)! John co-founded the Europa Band along with Milan Dvorecky (Primash) back in 1994. He has been on the forefront of modern accordion technology dating back to the 70’s with the Cordovox and other early electronic instruments. John covers the group with right hand accordion, keyboards, and left hand electric bass, tuba, etc.

Milan Dvorecky

Meet Milan Dvorecky! Milan loves his black Fender Strat guitar… he’s been playing it since Europa was formed back in 1994. Still sounds, and feels just as great as the day he got it! Coupled to a Fender Mustang III Modeling Amp, the sound is amazing! Milan is originally from Bratislava, Slovakia where he grew up playing music most of his life.


Meet Adam Dvorecky, Europa’s long time and current drummer. Adam lays down a great groove for Europa and provides back up and some lead vocals. Adam is also a Schuhplatter and performed from age 9 to 18 regularly with the Schuhplattler Gruppe Alpenrose in Orlando. He still dances during Europa Oktoberfest performances….


Meet Marianne Cathomen. Marianne joined the band in 2015 as a lead singer. Marianne Cathomen grew up in Davos, Switzerland. Her father was a professional musician, and she started singing and performing with him together as a child. Her charming and passionate stage presence, as well as her warm and strong voice, fascinated her audience then and now, with popular music, folk and oldies.
