Evgeny Margulis and his band at Cyprus-Russia Gala
28 Aug, 2012
People’s Artist of Russia, a Knight of the Order of Merit of Russia and legendary member of the groups “Time Machine” and “Voskresenie”, Evgeny Margulis has had many guises: “The Best Blues” guitarist, bass guitarist, bluesman, and a “guru” of the Moscow rock ‘n’ roll.
The songs from his days in “Time Machine” and “Voskresenie” with their rocking rhythm & blues, inimitable tone and overtones of positivity have become defining touchstones for the eras in which they were recorded. Evgeny combined his participation in “Time Machine” with his solo career and in the period 2001 to 2007 he released four solo albums.
His ageless music has captured the imagination of entire generations with songs like- “Shanghai Blues”, “My Friend,” “When You Go Away,” “Wild Strawberries”, “Old Songs” and remind his many fans, again and again, of their youth and a belief in the victory of good.
His works over the last decade include important albums such as “45 Years”, a concert album released to celebrate his 45th birthday in 2004; “Goodbye, friend” (1996), “7 +1″ (reprint 2001) and “Simply. Margulis” (2001), recorded with the musicians from the “Time Machine” and “Voskresenie.” At the end of 2007 a remarkable work by Evgeny entitled “To Be Continued” was recorded with the Kremlin Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Misha Rahlevsky where symphonic arrangements were made of Margulis’ repertoire with the addition of few new songs.
The gala dinner will take place on the 8 September 2012 in the gardens of the Presidential Palace in Nicosia, Cyprus. This year’s gala will open with a networking drinks reception.
