Joe Jagunich

After having retired from over 40 years of entertaining as a solo musician, and as the leader of his dance band (The Joey J Duo), Joe heard about The Singing Slovenes, and attended a practice session. He joined as a singer, and eventually began playing piano and button box accordion.  The people in the group have become 'family' to Joe - and the rest of the family says the same thing about Joe. It isn't just about playing music for Joe, the ethnic music performed and preserved by the Singing Slovenes is just as important to him.
