“Tonight we will be presenting a mixed style – jazz-rock-fusion. There will be some rock elements and a funky vibe. This festival is good because it unites many musicians, and those who play in such a mixed style also have the right to perform here”- said the leaders of the ChetMen group Dmitry Chetvergov and Michael Men.
As Men noted, the collective usually plays in the format of a quartet and performs original works of one of the two group founders, but sometimes, including today, invites other musicians to join.
“Today, in the first part of the performance, we will demonstrate our creativity, and in the second, we will amuse the audience” he promised.
The ChetMen members also noted the high level of organization of the Koktebel Jazz Party and its participants.
“I am astounded by the festival in Koktebel. Crazy, incredible level of performance, and we are happy to perform here with such artists” – admitted Dmitry Chetvergov. “And I am sure that Koktebel will be revived every year, thanks to the Koktebel Jazz Party”.
On August 26 at 21:50 the ChetMen band will perform in Crimea on the main stage of the Koktebel Jazz Party 2018 festival. Come, it will be hot!
The ChetMen band was founded by Dmitry Chetvergov and Mikhail Men. It includes great musicians from top projects, playing in various styles and directions. ChetMen plays mostly original music. In general, the style of the group can be described as fusion of jazz, blues, funk, soul with elements of pop rock, art rock and ethnic music.
