27.12.2012 - Sergey Bokarev solo album
I'd like to address this message to all friends and fans of Sergey Bokarev.
I will not organize a tribute concert. I have many reasons for that, I won't go into details here, it's not so important anyway.
Instead I propose to do another, much more significant thing.
It's not secret that Sergey worked with a whole lot of bands and misicians, from famous ones to beginners. But he always dreamed to release his own instrumental album, and even began working on it... But he didn't finish it.
With help of Sergey's friends and fellow musicians I want to find and collect all records, drafts and sketches Sergey left, put them in order, correct and finish what is needed, and release his full solo album. It will be an implementation of his unfulfilled dream. It is the best thing we can do in the memory of Sergey.
When the album will be ready, we will make a great concert where all Sergey's friends and colleagues, all whom he taught and with whom he played, could participate. It will be a real tribute to the life of Sergey, a truly bright and joyful event. His music, as well as music of his friends, will be played, and anyone could bring home a part of it - the Sergey's album.
Of course, it's a great amount of work to be done, so don't wait it will happen soon... But I'm sure - together we will do it! In the memory of Sergey Bokarev, the Musician, the Friend, the Human, and the Star among Stars!
27.12.2012 - To the memory of Sergey Bokarev
Terrible news about death of Sergey Bokarev came right before we were ready to announce to all our fans the release of our long-awaited second album in February, 2013, and subsequent Russia tour.
Sergey made a great contribution to the album, he helped and advised us on almost every topic. It is impossible to measure his contribution, he was, in fact, the fifth member of the band.
We want to dedicate the album and all shows of the tour to the memory of Sergey Bokarev. It is of utmost importance for us that you know that a part of his soul lives in our music, and will stay with us forever.
22.12.2012 - Farewell to Sergey Bokarev
