The Jan Galach Band

Chosen „Band of the Year” twice (in 2013 and 2014) by the
„Twój Blues” („Your Blues”) Magazine readers.
The only band in Poland playing continually with two drum
sets.

The „Jan Gałach & Friends” album was realeased on
September, 25.


The idea of creating a band and the dashing implementation of actually doing it is the masterpiece of Jan Gałach.  „the Jan Gałach Band” cannot be confined to just one genre – they started as a revelation of the Polish blues scene, but now manoeuvre just as well around rock, country, fusion or folk.  JGB play blues on their own terms, in a very unique style which has been proven several times during the most important blues festivals in Poland such as: „Suwałki Blues Festiwal”, „Rawa Blues”, „Blues Express”, „Las Woda i Blues” or „Bies Czad Blues”.


Improvisation is no stranger to the team, thanks to which the songs played at their concerts create a real sound collage and make every performance truly unique. Fascination of such artists as The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks Band, Mahavishnu Orchestra or Billy Cobhan brings back the spirit of the music from the 70’s.  Gałach has found excellent, worthy of themselves musicians and no-one exaggerates with virtuosity here.


Musicians and experienced instrumentalists who create the band are:
Jan Gałach – violin
Karolina Cygonek – vocal;
Marek Kobus – guitar;
Marek Idzik – bass;
Borys Sawaszkiewicz – keyboard;
Michał Bocek – percussion;
Krzysztof Kot – percussion


The band in its current shape cristalized in 2011 and has been spotted well by the organizators of music festivals. They  performed during „Bluesonalia” in 2012, during which they supported the biggest star of the concert- the American guitarist Doyle Bramhall II. At the beginning of 2014 the band has represented our country during „International Blues Challenge” in Memphis, receiving outstanding reviews.  Soon after the return to the country, JGB won distinction in a survey conducted by a quarterly magazine „Twój Blues”.


In March 2014 they conquered „Blues Aperitiv” organized in Czech Republic where they received the first prize as well as the Audience Award. Later, they showed up as a guest performer prior to the legend of the Polish scene „SBB” during „Blues na Świecie” festival.  2015 is a year full of performances during the most recognizable blues festivals  in the country as well as abroad. Jan Gałach, along with the band, perform at „Blues Alive Festival” (Czech Republic), „Festival Stetson & Bourbon” (Czech Republic), „Olsztyńskie Noce Bluesowe” and  „Supraskie Spotkania Okołobluesowe”.

The following year is also full of concerts: JGB performed at Charlotta Valley as the band chosen by the Rock Legend, Carlos Santana- the star of the event; but most of all, 2016 is a year full of work on new tracks for the upcoming album that will show everyone what the real music is about.
