The only boy band has the killer name Grupata (the Band) and is an important part of SMM's catalogue. Grupata was founded at the end of 2006 after a two-month casting organised and produced by Blyasak Magazine, Nescafe 3 in 1, City Radio and TV and Select Music Media. Winners of a number of contests and festivals, the five selected candidates had to overcome a multitude of musical challenges and are now aspiring to the limelights.
After a phenomenal debut with the hit song Back in your heart, written especially for Grupata at Warner Chapel Studio (Bregendahl / Richter / Stentorp), the record studio of artists like Backstreet Boys, Madonna, Cher and Elton John. At their first live performance - the final of the national singing contest Eurovision 2007 - the lads managed to win their first victory, the prestigious fifth place. An invitation by the legend of Bulgarian pop music Vassil Naydenov for a song featuring Grupata is another proof of the bright future lying ahead of this young boy band. F
or the first time in Bulgaria the fans were able to cast their vote in order to select Grupata's second single. After a year of hard work and many challenges they released their debut album called "Grupata". The album was voted by the fans as the best boy band album in Bulgaria so far. It contains eleven tracks with melodic vibes and a touch of romantic feeling.
The three boys are positive that all the tracks in the album are potential hits. Their goal is to make an international tour, so every young female fan can have a glimpse of what Bulgarian men are really like.
