The BlackJack story begins in 2005, when Andrei Ionescu (guitar), Mihai Ionescu (guitar) and Adrian Ciobanu (bass) joined forces to start a project inspired by the rock of the '80s. Soon Claudiu Ivan (voice) and Anatoliu Szabo (drums) joined the band and the first creations are outlined. In the period 2005-2008 the band holds several concerts through clubs in the country and participates in a series of festivals.
In 2008 Claudiu Ivan leaves the band, and will be replaced only in 2009 by Robert Pascari, who left the country in 2010. Also in 2010 Anatoliu Szabo decides to try his luck in other lands , which meant an interruption of the band's activity until the beginning of 2012.
In 2012, Gianni DeVita (vocals) and Valentin Vasile (drums) joined the band, both having a significant musical background, Gianni being a former Hot Shiver member (Naples), and Valentin being a former Assault member (Bucharest). In the current formula, the band held a series of concerts in Bucharest and the story continues.
