Vama Veche Overview
Vama Veche is a Romanian soft rock band, founded in 1996, which was also the year in which they recorded the song "Nu am chef azi" which became a hit in 1997 in Romania.
Their first concert took place in 1996 at Lăptaria lui Enache.
The third album released by the band was a concept album, suggesting that the group may turn towards progressive rock. The album was received with critical acclaim.
The band broke up in September 2006, right after having launched a new album, "Fericire în rate": it seems that, while Tudor was down with an acute illness, exhausted after the effort of finishing in time the rehearsals and recordings for the CD and concert, two of the other band members were making plans for an alternative band; after the confrontation that followed, the band broke up. Tudor replaced them with the drummer Lucian Cioarga and the guitar player Dan Opris, next to his remaining colleagues, Eugen Caminschi (guitar) and Raul Kusak (keyboards). The new band, "Vama", started to compose new songs and although the style they adopted was more modern and less bohemian as the previous Vama Veche songs, in the meantime they were also performing the same albums as before.
They were sued by the members of the old band, Balanescu, Lupu and Manescu (who were trying to form another band, named "Trupa Veche"), and Vama's rights to perform the Vama Veche songs were revoked, the court allowing only the former members of the band the copyright of the songs, although these rightfully belonged to all four (Tudor included). Tudor appealed, and the court action is still pending.
