Megaphonics is a group of professional musicians that have been on stage most of their lives. With a lot of experience on stage, Cristina, Cosmin, Aron, Vlad and Marius got together out of the desire to create a cover project that does it all. Thus Megaphonics was born, a band where class & style meet fun & funky and crazy passionate musicians leave their hearts out on the stage and keep their audiences enchanted and thoroughly entertained.
CRISTINA Dobrescu - You could hear the actual sound of jaws hitting the floor the first time Cristina stepped on the X Factor stage in 2011 and blew the roof off with an AC/DC cover, since nobody expected such incredibly powerful voice to come from such a tiny person. Though she keeps suprising everyone, Cristina has been owning each moment she spent on stage since she was 6 years old. In 2012 she left her native port town city Constanta to conquer the world with her talent. She studied CVT and she was a vocal coach for almost 3 years. Her entertaining skills made her one of the most appreciated frontwomen in the field, and in 2018 she had her first contact with cruise ship life. Now she is an accomplished musician, sharing her time between the stage and the studio. Three years ago she started the project MegaPhonics, along with Cosmin Farcas.
COSMIN Farcas’s extensive experience as a keyboard player and vocalist includes many projects. A jazz, blues, funk and rock aficionado Cosmin soon discovered his interest for that special kind of fusion that merges new music with old one: electro-jazz, nu-jazz, nu-disco, experimental, influences which can be found also in his electronic project. Cosmin is part of „Rares Totu's Midnight Sun” blues rock band for 10 years, where also plays the hammond organ and harmonica. In parallel, he played in cover bands, and for 3 years now, he is part of MegaPhonics. Besides these, he works as a studio musician and composer/producer on his solo projects and for other artists.
ÁRON Szabó-Sebők's introduction to playing a musical instrument happened at 10 years old with his first great love, the piano. Six years later though he fell in love with the classical guitar and he owns also a master degree (Transilvania University of Brașov Music Faculty). Ten years ago he picked up the electric guitar and they've been inseparable ever since. He has been an invaluable member of the Philarmonic Orchestra of Brașov and collaborated with a couple of cover bands, and in 2018 got hid first contract on a cruise ship. Extremely passionate, he loves to share his knowledge to others so he gives guitar lessons.
MARIUS "The Bear" Lung discovered his affinity for guitar when he was a teenager. He was autodidact and for about 5 years took part in some rock bands in his hometown. Also won 2nd place at Samus Rock Alive Festival in '99. One year later, he left the electric guitar to pick up the bass guitar. He signed a contract as a bass player with the mainstream band "Stigma", leading to 6 years of national tours and 3 recorded albums. From 2005 he plays in different projects (covers, rock, folk, pop, electronic music), also with big names in the romanian industry. He played in 4 big shows with the Voice of Romania's finalists and in the last 4 years was the bass player of Special Guest Orchestra, along with other 12 singers and instrumentalists.
VLAD Tohanean is the beating heart of Megaphonics. He has been a passionate drummer since he was 4, and he had his first gig at age of 6. His father is also a musician, so he grew up in a musical environment. At 12 yo he started his own musical project called "Youvenis", and at 15 he started the jazz project "Secret Formula", who won several trophies at the festival's around the country. His magnetic stage presence and energy turned him into one of the most sought after drummers in the country and the number of successful projects of all genres he has been a part of could barely fit here. He graduated Plugor Sandor Music High school and he played with The Bucharest Radio Orchestra, having the chance to share the stage with the biggest artists in Romania.
