Founded in 1976, the Bojtorján Band’s melodies still capture the imagination of the original fans’ grandchildren. The singer-songwriter-guitarist Zoltán Pomázi has revived the ensemble in 1999 and has toured all the regions of the Hungarian speaking world since, to great acclaim. Their calling is to make music accessible, especially to children. „If we survive only through one children’s song, it was worth it”.

About the Performers
Mr. Zoltán Pomázi, initially a member of the Tolcsvay Trió, of nation-wide renoun, has been a defining element of the Bojtorján Band of 1976. Whether through his vocal or instrumental contribution (twelve-string guitar), or through his continuing collaborations with major performing artists (i.e Zoltán Latinovits), Mr. Pomázi has shaped the character and the profile of the old Bojtorján and … the new one alike. The ensemble has toured the world many times over.
Mr. András Tóth has formed his own band at twelve years of age. He has joined the New Bojtorján at 19 and has toured the country with the band. Being a member of Acousticure ensemble, as well, he has performed in Nashville (Tennessee), Holland, Norway, Luxembourg, France, etc. He has worked with Sugarloaf and Bruce Lewis, and is a staunch promoter of country music in Hungary.
Mr. Miklós Szula, former member of Blue Timers, takes part in the roughly 500 performances of the New Bojtorján every year. His range in musical genres spans the classical and reggae through jazz and pop.
Mr. István Gál, the drummer of the ensemble since 2005, has a colourful past as member of the Unicornis, Rockwell, Wastaps, Z’Zi labor, Corpus, Mama Killed a Chicken, Bolero, Póker and Country Express ensembles.
Mr. Zsolt Kutasi, is a permanent guest artist of the New Bojtorján and has participated in the most recent studio recording of the ensemble. The pride of any country music band is its pedal steel-guitarist, who makes or breakes the band. Well, Zsolt is one of Europe’s best, and it is not even his full-time job. He has grown up on the original Bojtorján’s music, and is now simply paying back his dues.
