2020 - Hong Kong: “Blackjack” is the only band in the city playing original songs the ‘80s style hard rock/glam.
The band moved from London - United Kingdom (where his founder Save Blackjack has played bass for years in famous bands like INDYA and TANGO PIRATES) for the need to take new inspiration, mixing Asian culture with a western background and transforming own rock from a classic to a progressive and universally original form.

The story started in 1985, in a very dangerous place called "Bronx", close to Leghorn’s skid row bedside of town in Italy.
His founder Save Blackjack grow in a difficult environment, where his good values like friend, religion, family, ethic, moral, were difficult to be applied.
Out of the door, there was so much criminality, prostitution, drug: it was a fight every day.
That was the perfect mix for a rock band, where rock sound shouted out loud against these wrong values.

So, he started to write (playing the bass guitar also) several strong original glam rock songs helped from 2 “mate in crime”: Emil Bandera that will become soon the main guitarist of the famous band “DeathSS”, and Enzino EMS drummer with the ‘80s hard rock style in his DNA.
Very soon the spirit of the band attracted the media attention, hungry of Motley Crue’s glam look and hard’n’heavy riffs ‘80s rock. And so fast other more important bands in the rock top chart proposed to Save Blackjack to join playing bass and bringing fresh “Blackjack” ideas.

From 1990 to 2005 the Blackjack spirit was incorporated in some projects with other names, touring and gigging everywhere, recording several vinyl albums and tons of videos.
Just to remember few bands: Steeplejack (rock-psycho band achieved a top position in the “most famous band in ’90 Italian Rock encyclopedia), Mean Machine, Sweet Surrender, Oxidiana.
After 15 angry years living between New York (US), London (UK), Milan (Italy), he moved back to London (UK) in 2011, and during following years joined two well-known top bands: INDYA, by Natalie Indya West and TANGO PIRATES, by Danny Fury.

The Blackjack spirit grow again, even more, working side by side with Danny Fury the famous songwriter and drummer of VAIN (toured with Motley Crue and Guns and Roses), LORD OF THE NEW CHURCH (with singer Steve Bator - R.I.P.), SHAM 69 (the historical punk band), ROGUE MALE, KILL CITY DRAGONS.
With INDYA and TANGO PIRATES the Blackjack spirit will achieve the UK/European top rock chart, gigging live on BBC radio, seeing his band’s videos on KerrangTV and MTV, dividing the stage with other famous bands in Festivals, appearing in several magazines and interviews.

And in 2019, the new life’s change, going to live in Hong Kong (SAR - China).
Here the band BLACKJACK got back in full the 35 years of creativity and sound, writing and playing new songs. On stage are played also the best singles from Indya and Tango Pirates.
The band is endorsed by several brands, owning an Artistic Producer in the UK, working with Promoter agencies in Hong Kong and Europe.
This new website, with coming albums, videos, songs, crazy gigs, is exactly what the band is going to do… “We Rock Hong Kong”!
