2013 Year in review

Seeing lots of articles about the past year made me to stop and think for a few moments about my accomplishments in 2013. Without hesitation I decided to gather around all my musical experiences  in a “small” post that I use it as a reference both to the past and as a springboard for future plans and dreams. I hope I do not sound arrogant, but I wish that 2014 will be even better!


My 2013 began with a musical idea that I recorded it on the spot because I liked it very much. I hope I’ll find the time and inspiration to take this piece to the next level.

On January 15th I launched my website, and made a small movie (while paragliding) announcing it.


January 18 – My band Vita de Vie went on a national Tour called  Spunk Tour 2013. In a month and a half we did 5000 km touring, we visited 14 cities and played in front of about 8,000 people.

January 31 – I played with the band Days of Confusion @ Metalhead Awards in Silver Church.

And last but no least, the New Year’s Eve Gig



I have come to an end, although I have the feeling that I forgot to write down some stuff .. but it does not matter, as the brand new 2014 is already here.

The new year begins in force with a freakin’ BIG Vita de Vie Tour , and in the same time Platonic Band will continue it’s “Middle of the Week Tour”. It is possible to have some huge surprises in the Summer, but I’ll talk about them in time. Altogether, the future sounds good
