SOBO Blues Band @ the Parkside Lounge


SOBO Blues Band from Israel played at the Parkside Lounge last Saturday on January 28th as a first stop and warm up to their final destination the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Their style of playing is what I call "happy blues." They exude the purest form of pleasure in music collaboration while celebrating the American art form they treasure and proclaim is universal.


Assaf Gansman, the bass player with deeply soulful vocals, is also the band's master of ceremonies. Daniel Kriman shreds on electric resonator slide guitar, together with harmonica creates the group's signature sound. The first beat in of drummer Eden Bahar, I knew I was in for a treat. He is classically trained, but unlike other players of that ilk, he brings grit to the mix.


Together they generate love from the stage. Shout out today; they made it to the finals, sending their brand of love in the form of blues to Memphis.

SOBO was founded in 1995 in Jerusalem by the songwriting team, Assaf Ganzman, and Daniel Kriman. Ganzman is also co-owner of the legendary Mike's Place live music bars and restaurants in Israel. Two years ago the team was joined by 24-year-old Eden Bahar who is considered one of the best percussionist in Israel.
