Mazar's Band is the love child and natural evolution of the Jerusalem-based Israeli Progressive Rock group "Musrara Band", formed in 2015 by Ofer Mazar and his brothers Benjamin and Roy. Watch and listen to "Musrara Band" performs in Hebrew: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eCYMwjEE4Y
While "Musrara" recorded and performed in Hebrew, limiting its outreach to the boundaries of the Holly Land, Mazar's Band records and performs in English, expanding its outreach to all music lovers around the world. Influenced by the world's greatest Classic and Progressive rock bands, Mazar's Band Progressive Rock style is unique and uncompromising. The leader of the band and its musical producer Ofer Mazar's approach to both recording and live shows is to encourage his band mates to bring their musicianship to the center of the stage without reservations. The result is a unique and energetic type of music.
Time moves on. The world is changing. In the process, some art forms are lost in time. Ever since the ground breaking work of our great rock heroes of the 1960s and 1970s, the genre is in a constant threat of demise, losing to other genres of this age, especially those relying on computers based instruments and drum machines. Guitar, Piano or Saxophone solos in songs are almost extinct. The same goes to progressive and out of the ordinary song arrangements. We watch with broken hearts how wonderful musicians are reduced today to playing chords in studio recordings and in live shows.
Mazar's Band is all about keeping Rock alive by letting musicians do what they were born to do. Performing Ofer Mazar's original music and lyrics, the band is giving voice to the exceptional talents of its five musicians, pushing progressive rock to its limits in its ProgRockShock
series of albums. These musicians are: Ofer Mazar
- Lead Vocals, Lead and Rhythm Guitars, Keyboards,. Nissim Mayost
- Drums. Dudu Levi
- Bass Guitar. Amir Azulay
- Lead Guitar. Uri Biran
Although Mazar's Band plays original music, there is one song in its arsenal which was not written by Ofer Mazar - the iconic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", written and composed by the legendary George Harrison. The band recorded the song both in Hebrew and in English and got the licence from the rights holders - "Penny Farthing Music" for both versions. The Hebrew version can be found on Musrara Band's "Coffee & Cards" album (https://musraraband.bandcamp.com/album/coffee-cards
) and the English version can be found on Mazar's Band Evolution album (https://mazarsband.bandcamp.com/album/progrockshock-evolution
