Band

Many years ago the project “Souperman” was born in the head of the guitarist, singer, composer and lyric writer Robert Jančík, who was forced to suppress his passion for music “for a while” because of his studies. In the end, this “little while” lasted for more than ten years. Nevertheless, throughout this period Robert was composing various themes for himself at night, dreaming about the moment he would go on the stage again to play his own music.

Finally, this moment came in 2011. Robert contacted former band players, but they were busy with other projects, or had already given up music for good. Robert was not discouraged and placed an advertisement in several internet portals…. The post of drummer was taken up immediately. Milan arrived at the very first casting and it really clicked with Robert – it turned out they have similar views on music, a similar feeling for rhythm, as well as being close as people. Then it was only a matter of waiting for a bass player who could work rhythmically with Milan and fit into the band. Finally, Pavel arrived in July 2011, and everything was clear. We were complete!

This means that the 1st of August,2011 can be considered the date of the real formation of the band “Souperman”.
