makes the image of Bulgarian Blues -
the answer is PODUENE BLUES BAND
idea has been existing for ten years ago. Five musicians with love
called blues gathered together on a nice autumn day in 1989. They
have played everywhere since then. They have become poplar with
the songs Vasko writes and sings, which are up-to-date and close
to most people with their sound and problems. The band entertains
people of all ages at all the Bulgarian parties. "The Blues
matches our reality. The Bulgarians feel the blues, because it is
like our life. Our group is open for everybody who plays blues"
says the leader of the band Vasko the Patch. They rehearse rarely
but successfully. "Communism is leaving", "There's
no beer, "Sunny beach Blues", "The stray dog"
have become hits and are sung by everybody. The band is ready to
release a new album. Before PBB appear on the stage, they don't
use dressing rooms, they don't change the costumes. "Patched
jeans are my costume" says Vasko. It doesn't matter where they
are - at The National Palace of Culture, in the park or at the Country
Club, Poduene Blues Band does their best-they play with all their
heart. Perhaps that's why people like them...
