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.
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.
