In the summer of 2003 Boom Pam started gaining popularity in the Tel
Aviv music scene, playing at night clubs and parties. The band consists
of two electric guitars, a tuba and drums. Boom Pam’s original music
and arrangements of Balkan, Jewish, Greek and Mediterranean songs,
seasoned with dueling guitars and a rock attitude, brought the crowds
to the centre of the dance floor and gave their live shows the
atmosphere of an alcohol soaked wedding party.
Their cover version of the Greek hit “Boom Pam” (which was a major hit in 1969 for the late Aris San - a famous greek singer who immigrated to Israel and one was one of the first to use electric guitar in a Greek music setting), recorded with Berry Sakharof, one of Israel’s leading rock stars, became a mega hit, ranking high on the charts.
A blend of local success and enthusiastic media coverage brought Boom Pam to perform in Europe’s finest venues, including the Berlin Opera House and “The Schauspiel” in Frankfurt, alongside D.J. Shantel at “Bucovina Club” parties…
BOOM PAM has played at the Tel Aviv Symphony Hall as opening act for the “Minimal Compact” reunion, the “Non Smoking Orchestra” of Emir Kusturica and the “Gypsy Kings”. They have also collaborated with the “Bat Sheva” dance ensemble, performed at Zurich, Cologne, the Frankfurt Museum Festival and Mikonos.
BOOM PAM continues to play at weddings, parties and night clubs throughout the country, and presents an original, exciting alternative without compromising musical qualities and artistic integrity.
Iמ September 2006 BOOM PAM Released their debut LP which contained in the israeli edition 3 bonus songs - “Hatul Ve Hatula”, “Adi Adios” and “Boom Pam” (cover version of Aris San).
