The group Cheap Tobacco was founded in Cracow in July 2010, but it wasn’t until half a year later than its present lineup crystallized.
Cheap Tobacco is four young people full of energy and passion they ‘infect’ with anybody who hears them. They combine various musical styles in search of their own sound. They can be moving, provoke thought and rock the audience, involving them in mad trans dance. The music they perform is not easy to define. It’s a fusion of rock, blues emotions and funky. They aren’t scared of experimenting and changing of arrangements. That’s why they play either electric or acoustic instruments, often with a wind section. He who has heard them once will come back for more!
The group is a winner of many awards, for example: 3rd place at the Festiwal Ryśka Riedla (Rysiek Riedel Festival) 2012, 1st place at the festival Kodex Blues 2012, 1st place at Wetwater Blues Festival 2012, 1st place at Ścinawa Blues Festival 2012, 1st place at Warta Mississippi Blues 2012, Audience Award, 2nd place and distinction for the best guitarist during the second edition of the festival Bluesroads in Cracow, the title of winner at Galicja Blues Festival 2011 in Krosno, Audience Award and 2nd place at the festival Las, Woda & Blues 2012.
