To celebrate the Centenary of Politehnica University Timisoara on November 11, 2020, a group of caliber musicians from bands that have made history in the field of music, all UPT graduates, come together to form a super-band. They will give a concert dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the oldest higher education institution in Timisoara.

A first meeting of the members of the super-band with the management of Politehnica University Timisoara and with the press took place on Monday, October 5, 2020, at the UPT Rectorate. On this occasion, music director Bogdan Puriș, UPT graduate as well, presented the project he coordinates. In essence, it involves the preparation and stage performance of 13 famous hits of the groups in which the band members sang, plus a new song dedicated to the UPT Centennial. The lyrics of the new song are composed by another graduate of the Timisoara Polytechnic, the poet and writer Robert Șerban.

The band that will perform the concert consists of Mircea Baniciu - voice, guitar (Phoenix, Pasărea Colibri, Pasărea Rock); Călin Pop - voice, guitar (Celelălte Cuvinte); Tiberiu Bako - bass (Cargo, Pro Musica); Teodor Pop - keyboards (Jazzybit); Valentin Potra - drums (Abra, Blazzaj, Impact, Arca). Between October 2 and 9, 2020, the members of the band are in Timișoara, to rehearse together and to record the new song.

During the non-formal meeting with the UPT management, the members of the band unraveled some memories from their student days at Politehnica. During the press conference, the artistic side that many of the institution's graduates had was highlighted. Many graduates of the university made a name for themselves in the music industry, some of them developing careers abroad, but it was not possible to bring everyone due to the coronavirus pandemic. Of those present, some developed careers in the engineering field they graduated, others dedicated themselves only to their musical path.

The concert will take place during the Politehnica Week, between November 9 and 15, 2020, but the schedule could change depending on the epidemiological situation.
