Modus
active from year 1968

in the 70's - 80's the most popular Slovak pop band; after Zbirka's departure and Gombitova's serious injury in a car crash in early 1980s, the later improvised line-ups do not follow up with the popularity of the old Modus; step by step the band leaves its top position to Elan.
