"SЮR Band" (pronounced [sur bænd]) (Kiev, Ukraine) - one of the RADZ projects with which the brothers Dmytro and Serhii Radzetskyi have developed a completely original product. The professionalism of the musicians, the originality of creative thinking, the high quality of the music presentation and unexpected twists in music, words and actions on stage guarantee this band a bright, self-evident feature. The motto of the band is "And why not?!". With it the band manages to amaze the audience again and again.
The brothers have participated in many festivals in the Ukraine, Germany, Poland, Great Britain, Israel and the USA. They have graduated from the Conservatory as classical musicians and won international competitions for performers and composers. They are creators of unique musical instruments, as the 8- and 10-string MIDI RADZ guitar, which they successfully play at the concerts of all their projects.
The projects of the two brothers are moving in the genres of contemporary music, jazz, rock, avant-garde, ambient, electronics and Musique Concrete. The musical versatility allows them to constantly change the musical style and the number of musicians - from one to 80 performers: the brothers are founders of the first "Ukrainian Improvisers Orchestra" in Ukraine.
Dmytro and Serhii have been collaborating and performing on stage with the following musicians: Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Markus Reuter ("KING CRIMSON"), Phil Minton, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Dan McCafferty ("Nazareth"), John Lawton ("Uriah Heep") ), Graham Bonnet ("Alcatraz"), "Bang on a Can All-Stars".
Frank Zappa is the main inspiration for our work. Zappa's multifaceted talent really helps us in creating our shows. The performance at “Zappanale Festival” is a very important and long awaited moment for us, and we are preparing a special program for it: our own music, from solo to trio, from different eras and different projects, from contemporary music to Progressive and Bizarre Rock; and of course there is Frank Zappa's music.
