Milan G. Pančevac (1898-1971)

Milan G. Pančevac was an accordion player and singer from Pančevo in Serbia (then part of Austria-Hungary). He went by several stage names, but apparently his real name was Milan Gorčev. His discography shows that he was recording as early as 1927 for the Pellich Music Co. in Richmond, Indiana. Milan went on to make many more recordings of Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Hungarian, Romanian, and German songs and dances for both the Victor and Columbia recording studios. He eventually settled in Cleveland, Ohio (E.33rd Street), where he was married and had several children.

These three records feature Milan both singing and playing the accordion. He had a wonderful, free style and his singing fits his playing perfectly. These were all recorded on June 26, 1928 in Chicago, Illinois.
