John has been a member of the Singing Slovenes for over 20 years. His mother-in-law was Croatian and his father-in-law was Slovenian who played the button box. John always enjoyed Slavic music so joining the Singing Slovenes seemed like a great thing to do. In over 2 decades, he hasn't regretted that decision. John didn't join the Singing Slovenes by himself, he brought his lovely wife Polly along with him.
