"Rye Bread" blues and rhythm-n-blues Moscow band, known better as "Dr. Agranovsky Group" gives a concert on October 8. As they play closer to the roots, they avoid bigger venues for the sake of smaller clubs where both musicians and audience have a feeling of the intimacy of music, mutual understanding and co-creation. This is a must for a real blues. Let's face it: blues is not a concert music but a club one.
They will be playing in "Polnolunie" ("Full Moon") It's Bolshoy Karetny per., 2, Zvetnoy Boulevard metro station. Rbl 50 in case you have a flyer.
Eya Mozkobili sings with the band. It's a pity that it's not so often she exposes herself to an audience. For a last few years she sings almost solely with with blues and R-n-B crews. That's her love, but in general she is not limited by any style niche. Eya's voice, powerful yet flexible and expressive, resembling no one, lets her be at home both in rock and meanwhile in singing ballads to an acoustic guitar. There was a time when she took a flute in the breaks. Let's hope those times will come back. But whatever she sings, she sings it from under her skin. She lives through the lyrics, she makes any song her own. Even more rare is the opportunity to hear her own compositions, and that is not right! Eya writes on music and she is being published in a serious editions. She found and for several years kept a "Cry Baby" club - a place known for a friendly atmosphere and always great live music. Still, her call is singing. That is what she's gonna be doing on October 8.

GENESIS What are bands made of? Sometimes of haphazard people and
stuff bound by a chain of coincidences. Sometimes they are assembled on
purpose, but that's another story. Dr. Agranovsky - man and group - grew
out of the Moscow "kitchen blues". This story started in 1972, when Agranovsky
brothers (parents off on vacation) had their home open for
part-time-job-most-time-rambling musicians and Moscow hippies, singing,
smoking, playing, drinking, making direct takes on a mono tape recorder. The
first listeners-friends, girls, and neighbors-got their kicks. The flat on the
Lomonosov Prospect saw quite a few persons of underground fame: linguist,
singer, and composer Alexander Lerman, who then played in Skomorokhi; Mike
Guzhov, who himself rigged gadgets for electric guitar, and played peculiar
blues on a XVIII century nine-string cittern; Vadim Golutvin, then one of the
few if not the only in Moscow who had mastered acoustic guitar folk rock and
country; Alexander Galkin;…
