Dave Wretschko Orchestra

Recording from The Best Of

David H. Wretschko, born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio began to study the accordion at the age of nine. Dave’s first orchestra appeared on the Cleveland musical scene during his very early teens. Dave Wretschko had successfully led his popular Cleveland-Style orchestra for 24 consecutive years. Starting in 1966 as the Rivieras and participating in the first Polka Band of Tomorrow contest in 1968, the Wretschko Orchestra carne into its own in the 1970s, becoming one of the mainstays of the Slovenian sound in the Greater Cleveland area. Dave’s Orchestra became rapidly gaining popularity throughout the greater Cleveland and Tri-State areas. Dave has performed at many popular Cleveland places during the years.

 

Dave Wretschko recorded his first album Cleveland-Style Polkas And Waltzes in 1977. Just before his untimely passing in 1990, Dave recorded his last recording Our Town. The album was conceived by Dave from his great love for the city of Cleveland. The album "Our Town" was released posthumously in 1991.
