The Gagarin Brothers refer to their style as "A Neo Retro Alliance", a description fitting for their talent of taking popular melodies from Soviet and American music of the 1920's through 1960's and giving them new life in very unexpected rockabilly, gipsy jazz, folk and zydeco arrangements.
During its formation, the group saw many `artists` come and go before it reached the stable collective. Today, however, these professional musicians have found in each other similar tastes in music, common ideas, and vital homogenous orientation where this music is concerned, traits which give Gagarin Brothers the deep personal connection that comes across so clearly on stage.
Performing in clubs and concert halls, Gagarin Brothers bring esthetic and emotional satisfaction to audiences throughout Russia and abroad with their excellent music and original stage costumes.

Sergei Kalinin - drums (formerly of Rattlesnakes and Red Elvises)
Alexei Andreev - guitar (formerly of Lampa Ladino)
Sergei Zaslavskii - accordion (formerly of Amigos de Corazon and Melnitsa)
Dmitry "D-Jazz" Ilyin - upright bass (formerly of Meantraitors and Rattlesnakes)
