Born in a small town called Brno in what was then called
Czechoslovakia, Luba and his brother were taken by their
parents on vacation to what was then called Yugoslavia.
What they didn't mention to anyone was that they weren't
coming back. After a year and a half of bouncing around
Europe they finally settled in Vancouver, Canada.
The son of a blacksmith and well-respected musician
is not far down the family tree from world renowned
composer Antonín Dvorák, Luba started
playing guitar at age twelve and never looked back.
After releasing two solo albums and touring the US
and Europe multiple times, Mr.Dvorak relocated to New
York City in 2004 taking his music to the next level.
Collaborating with his new band "the Banned"
they recorded a collection of songs entitled Under
the Radar. The Album is a collection of ten songs
cut live off the floor at Pilot Studios in New York
City with Producer Allan Rodger.
Since then the Banned has exploded with
sound and talent.
Look for LUBA DVORAK as he brings his Lonesome Highway,
New York Swaggerin', Country Fried Rock and Roll to
a town near you and join him in his effort to spread
the gospel of true great live rock and roll music!!!
