::.. Hard rocking band; BLACK PASSAT ..::
Formed in -95 Black Passat Blues are one of
the cream of the Finnish cover bands. The
band was formed by a few leading figures from
known Pohjanmaa (a Finnish region) bands.
Behind these chaps are numerous records in
different bands and many hundreds of gigs.
About one hundred songs form the repertoire
drawn from the best sounds
of the 60s and 70s
(Hendrix, Cream, ZZ top, Thin Lizzy, Purple,
Zeppelin, Kansas, Clapton, CCR) with room in
the set for a few 80s and 90s numbers from
artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Cult, Steve Miller
Band,Stevie Ray Vaughan, U2, Foo Fighters.
BPB stand out from other cover bands especially
with its 3 lead singers. This allows an extremely
versatile repertoire. It is possible to play an
acoustic version in small venues. The reward for
versatility is that the "passats" have played at
many rock festivals, such as Provinssi Rock,
numerous biker events such as Super Rally,
Neste Rally Finland and even Jazz events (!?)
and still further at the Lahti World Championship
Winter Games (!!!!!) and all sizes and types of
clubs, bars and venues.
