Fyodor Chistyakov
Fyodor Chistyakov
Fyodor Valentinovich Chistyakov was born on December 28, 1967 in Leningrad. At the age of 8 he started attending classes in a music section at a comprehensive school, majoring in bayan.

Fyodor Chistyakov is known as the songwriter, singer and bayanist of the rock band Nol’ that is still considered in Russia a cult model for the Russian rock music. The project attracted public’s attention thanks to Fyodor Chistyakov’s original manner of playing the bayan, the instrument unusual for rock music as such, as well as sharp social lyrics and an expressive scenic image of a lad wearing a Russian shirt and playing rock'n'roll on accordion. In 1991 the band Nol’ released its most famous album The Song about unrequited love to the Homeland, with lots of songs from it becoming hits.
The Place Remains The Same
This is the American reunion of the legendary Fedor Chistyakov with the phenomenal blues and jam guitarist Vanya Zhuk and the fabulous drummer/percussionist Garik Bagdagyulyan, both known and loved by many in US.

Now that the three met haphazardly at the international annual event JetLAG in NY state, they realized it was time and place to come up with their great collaboration which started back in 2000. This is why they called the tour “The Place Remains The Same’’.

The team is going to integrate old favorite hits and new repertoire. Fedor says he appreciates American Russian crowd's openness to the new, and he expects his instrumental pieces to be accepted as widely intensely as his famous songs that belong to the Russian rock classics.

It is a unique exclusive situation which might not happen again soon, says Fedor. Those who miss it, will have to only watch it on a video, just as long as someone makes one. But, according to the good old Russian saying, it’s better to see once than to hear many times.
Vanya Zhuk
Ivan “Vanya” Zhuk is a composer, arranger, songwriter, translator, performer and powerful guitarist, embracing traditions of blues, garage, rock, klezmer, and Russian Roma seven-string-guitar song, a perfect jammer, who can be described, literally, as a one man house band, a uniquely artistic, unpredictable and clever showman, eloquent and witty in several languages. He has a long history of performing US-wide, including collaboration with Ken Hensley, Frank London, Vadim Kolpakov and other musicians, and a substantial American following.
