Memphis to get a shot of Croatian Blues courtesy of Zamba

The band was founded 11 years ago by group of fellows who knew each other for quite a long time. The band was named the guitar player's nickname, who is also the song writer and producer of the band Boris Dugi-Novacki (Zamba). Throughout the years their repertoire was moving from blues to rock , and back to blues again. Considering the number of live gigs at biker parties, blues festivals and other events band has earned a status of a reliable, quality band.

After years of playing covers, and songs of other authors the band now has a material of it's own written entirely by Zamba(guitar),with absolute contribution by the whole band. First place at the 5th Croatian Blues Challenge was a reward for a years of dedication to their music (blues). The friendship inside the band is the main thing that keeps the quality of music and energy of the band at the highest level. Hopefully it will last .We enjoy our performances and we try to transfer that to our audience.

Boris Dugi-Novacki (Zamba)

The band is:

Boris Dugi-Novacki(Zamba) -  guitars
Tihomir Ban - bass guitar
Stiscak Hrvoje -  drums
Viktor Lipic - Hammond organ

Like we say every show is important, and every audience deserves the best possible performance. That's why we have lasted for so long, and hopefully with a little help from above we'll KEEP THE BLUES ALIVE!
