Avalon Park Group- Stephanie Hodson- Marketing Director Orlando, FL
The Europa Band is an authentic German Band, that has performed at the
Annual Avalon Park Oktoberfest since its inception. Not only is the
group professional and outgoing, they have helped our event grow larger
every year. From organizing contests, to crowd participation, Europa is
an asset to any program.
Upper Tampa Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce- Jerry Custin, President/CEO Oldsmar, FL
We have been using Europa for our Oktoberfest for nearly ten years. Our event has grown from the 10,000 range to nearly 25,000 guests this year. Europa has to be given part of the credit for that growth curve. Not only are John and Milan great musicians but great guys. We try and make ours a real community event and Europa has truly become a part of our community and family. We have one couple that has made all 25 hours for 13 of our 15 events and part of the reason is loyalty to Europa. We use only two bands each other and do not plan on switching. When you have the best why change that formula?

To Whom It May Concern:
It is with utmost pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Europa.
Europa has been working with Snowbird at our annual Oktoberfest for the past 5 years.
We are very satisfied with their performance. Europa has a knack of interacting and entertaining the crowd.
Europa always arrives to work on time and is appropriately dressed. They are highly professional and very committed to their music. From the minute they walk in the door Europa is ready to perform. Snowbird values their enthusiasm and creativity.
If you have questions feel free to contact me.

To whom it may concern,
My name is Janette Merritt and I am the 2nd Vice president of the Delaware Saengerbundes in Newark,
Delaware, a German club with a membership over over 1,000 members. Our club hosts the annual
Oktoberfest each year during the 3 day weekend in September. ln September 2012 we had the pleasure to
enjoy the performance of the "Europa Band" for the entire weekend.
The band played a very nice variety of songs for young and old and really had the crowd going.
The dance floor was always crowded and of course all the dancing benefited our record sales in beerl
We received a lot of compliments about the band from club members end guests as well.
New Years Eve 2012 we were able to enjoy the "Europa Band" again. Due to an overwhelming request
received from our membership I am working with the band now to set up a future engagement for New
Years Eve 2014. The New Years Eve music was excellent.
The Band was very easy to work with. They took care of all the arrangements from hotel booking to
equipment rental. The band also adhered to there performance schedule request by me for the
Oktoberfest and New Years Eve which helped both events run smoothly.
I can highly recommend this band to anyone for an event resulting in a great success.
(2nd vice President)
