In 2002 a group of musicians decided to give birth to a project they have been dreaming about for a long time. The idea was to create a band that would provide them with a chance of doing something they really love. Since then, the band has performed at the "Summer Blues Festival" in Tel Aviv, Givatayim Theater, International Women's Film Festival, Bella Shlomkins and other blues concerts and clubs.
Led by guitar player Itsik Friedman, Singer Harold Mymoni and Bass player, Constantin adelkind, Trask set on a gourney to explore the blues. Trask's dynamic stage performance showcases original songs by the band, as well as blues classics from Robert Johnson to B.B. king.
From bars to festivals, TRASK thrills their audiences with a combination of passion, energy and honesty. Their music is never a re-creation of sounds from the past, but rather an updated, vital celebration of the Blues as the soundtrack of real life.
Lately TRASK has gained some recogniston in the Israeli music industry and has been chosen to represent Israel in the upcoming International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, TN, January 2007. Over 100 bands will compete for $25,000 in cash and prizes and the title "Best Unsigned Blues Band". The event is sponsored by the Blues Foundation (www.blues.org) which serves over 100 affiliated blues organizations and thousands of members worldwide.
