Europa Trio



We welcome this dynamic power trio, which was founded in 1994 by Hans (John) Kolbrich, & Milan Dvorecky. They cover a wide variety of music from old German Polkas and sing-a-longs, to current Country music. Accordion, Trumpet, Guitar, Violin, Drums and plenty of vocal harmonies can be heard from the group, with a strong groove and passion for what they do!

The Band has evolved into a nationally acclaimed group with a strong following of fans ages 5 – 95. The Europa Band has a very active performing schedule of over 60 performances a year. Their motto is “Polka Lives”. Those who love polkas, young or old, will love the sound of the Accordion, Violin and The Europa Band's eclectic collection of over 350 songs.

The Group has released a total of 4 CD's to show their diversity and wide range of musical styles. We look forward to Europa gracing the stage for our Wednesday concert including dancing.

Performing: Wednesday Dinner


Playing in a Band vs. Solo
John will discuss his approach of being a musician first, and accordionist/keyboardist/bassist/vocalist second. Being less busy and more musical is my approach to making the band sound better, leaving space for everything and everyone to come together. John's approach to playing the Concerto blending midi Bass, Keyboards, and Accordion into a very powerful package of sound, the cornerstone to the band.
  Thursday 11:00 – 11:50 Room A  
Selecting the right accordion (Concerto) for you!
John is playing his second generation Concerto accordion and will review what he has learned about selecting the right model for you, He will review key "go to" sounds, that work well in most commercial sound settings. John will review his settings with examples, how he uses of a "Leslie" Pedal for producing natural rotary speaker Hammond sounds, and his approach for getting the best Bass sound.
