“The 4FUN” was formed in 2001 in Vilnius. The group performs in music clubs, festivals and other music events in Lithuania and neighbouring countries.
“The 4FUN” was the biggest success in 2007, when they won the National Eurovision Song Contest and represented Lithuania in ESC final in Helsinki with a ballad “Love or leave” written by the leader of the group Julia Ritchik.
The group have won several LCMA (Lithuanian Country Musicians Association) awards: Julia was the best vocal in 1998, Laimonas was the best instrumentalist in 2005 and the “4FUN” was awarded for the best debut in 2003.
“The 4FUN” have been twice chosen as a support slot – in summer 2007 they opened an American blues and rock veteran Joe Cocker’s performance in Vilnius, in autumn 2008 – a European blues and pop-folk star Katie Melua’s concert in Vilnius.
In 2004”The 4FUN” released their first CD – a live concert album “Gyvas”, which means both ‘live’ and ‘alive’ in Lithuanian. In May 2007 a ‘Eurovisional’ single “Love or leave” was released, which contained the versions of the song in English and Lithuanian and two remixes of the English version. In April 2009 the band released a double album ” Dėlionė”/”A puzzle”, which contains original songs in Lithuanian on one CD and in English on the other CD.
