• To be, or not to be, that is the question. To be honest - that is the Dave's answer. And he is. He's honest in everything he says and does. Being connected with reality of life he is performing every show in synchronicity with every audience. His way of performing changes from show to show, from city to city but always he’s doing his best!
    So he was impressive soulful and emotional in St-Petersburg (Russia), really artistic in Moscow (Russia) and wild in Kiev (Ukraine)...
    And now let’s talk about …BORSCHT


Borscht description
Good Ukrainian borscht should be so thick with vegetables that, according to an old rule, a wooden spoon will stand upright when stuck into the pot.
Sometimes the borscht could be served as one-course meal.

Borscht is a very complicated meal and can consist of more than 20 ingredients: for example, one version of ingredients:
• 1 pound boneless beef chuck.
• 1 beef marrow bone.
• 1 1/2 pounds pork spareribs.
• 2 onions, in all.
• 1 carrot, in all.
• 1 parsley root, in all.
• 2 ounces celery root, in all.
• 1 teaspoon salt plus additional salt to taste.
• 3 medium beets.
• 1 tablespoon unsalted butter.
• 3 tomatoes.
• 2 potatoes.
• 1/3 head cabbage.
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
• 2 tablespoons tomato paste.
• 1/4 pound boiled ham, cut into 1/2-inch dice.
• 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley leaves.
• 3 cloves garlic, crushed in a garlic press or finely chopped.
• 6 teaspoons sour cream

But the only one ingredient is required in every recipes of borscht is the beets! And without onions, garlic, pepper, lovage, dill, marjoram, savory, parsley, celery borscht can’t be the real good Ukrainian borscht

And in the end of the day of 19th June 2003 the band were served with this national Ukraine Borscht in the hotel. That was a day before show.
Next day - the June 20th 2003 – a concert was played. Dave began his performance full of energy totally deep into his songs as usual. But the Kiev’s audience was so much excited and enthusiastic that turned into the wild wild and really chaotic. It wasn’t really matter for them what he did or sung. And Dave realized: it was BORSCHT once again. And he became wild too doing things he never did before performing! In the middle of the show he screamed "YMCA" of Village People. When Victor cried in Ukrainian language "Mi vas kochaem!"and Ukrainians didn’t reacted, Dave commented into microphone “It just not working!” and then translated to Ukrainians form their native Ukrainian language into English:”He (Victor) said WE LOVE YOU!” Than Victor played on his drums a fooball march and the whole excited audience screamed “Kiev, Kiev ,Kiev!” And as the curtain fell Dave danced a national Ukrainian dance "gopuck" .
