Get ready for the dance – S.A.R.S. for the first time in America and Canada!
When the legendary guitarist Joe Satriani played in Belgrade in 2006, he did not even suspect that the magic of his right-hand who pull the strings of his “fender stratocaster” would be an inspiration for the name of the band that will become a real musical “epidemic” all over the Balkan.
S.A.R.S. (shortened from Fresh Amputated Hand of Satriani, but also a contagious respiratory disease) two years later, almost overnight, became stars after the release of their first single, “Buđav lebac”. The home work video in a short time overwhelmed the Internet, had millions of reviews, and made the guys from the band, who at that moment thought about raising hands from music, to climb up and continue to work.
It was worth it! S.A.R.S. is today one of biggest ex-YU bands, behind them are the great gigs in Belgrade, Zagreb, Sarajevo, Split … It is boring to count the big festivals where they played as headliners, behind them are venues all over The Europe, and they arrived even to Australia. After “Buđav lebac” came the hit gallery: “Perspektiva”, “Rakija”, “Debeli lad”, “Pepeo”, “Ratujemo ti i ja”, “Klinka”, “To rade”, “Ti, ti, ti” “,”Dane brojim”, and the song “Lutka” has become the No1 track with which the young men proclaim the girls or with them, after they have agreed, dance the first wedding dance.
On their first US / Canadian tour, the band will perform on October 5 in New York (“The Cutting Room”, 44 E 32nd St.), Toronto on October 6 (“Opera House”, 735 Queen St E) Chicago (“Avondale Music Hall” (“Mambo Club”) and Washington DC on October 8 (2619 Columbia Pike, Arlington). Concerts start at 8pm and the audience can expect almost three hours of quality music for all tastes, as it is known that the group blends various musical styles, from pop-rock to reggae and ska.
Everyone is invited without exception, regardless of religious, ethnic affiliation, color of skin or passport.
You are all welcome! ONE LOVE!
