Romantic Russian Ballads And Rocking Tunes - Alex Samoshkin Album Premiere!

Join us for an evening of romantic Russian ballads and rocking tunes performed by Alexander Samoshkin and his band on the occasion of the premiere of his new CD album - "Incautious Words"! Be the first to hear this new collection of songs in performance!

This concert is being styled as a “kvartirnik” – a surreptitious private performance, usually organized by the dedicated fans of a rising rock-star unrecognized and unappreciated by the political mainstream in the bye-gone Soviet era. These informal gatherings in private apartments during the 1970’s and 1980’s launched the pop music careers of numerous outstanding Russian rockers, and produced many cherished memories of sharing a couch with a future star among the fans of groups such as Nautilus Pompilius, DDT or Alisa.

Who knows, maybe someday you will be bragging about attending Alex Samoshkin’s kvartirnik?

Originally from St. Petersburg and a biologist by his professional training, Alex has been recognized for his talent for song-writing upon moving to North America. His songs are frequently broadcast on Russian Radio Station Danu Radio in NYC. His hits (“Ekaterina”, “Your voice”, “Lads” and others) were voted as “best songs” in the Radio Hit Parade.

The program will also feature an interesting variety of door prizes including free tickets to various live music shows, a dinner at "Russia House" and others. You will also have an opportunity to collect photos and autographs of the band members.

Complimentary light refreshments will be served.
