He and Balázs Zságer used to play together in a ‘school band’ called The End in Kaposvár. They were obsessed by the 60′s and 70′s blues and psychedelic rock music. They played cover versions of bands like The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and the later Beatles.. After their split, Ligeti formed a band with Ákos Zságer-Varga called The Puzzle. With this new band, they won the Pepsi’s Star Maker Contest and a record deal with Universal Hungary in 2000. After that success, he moved to London with his bandmates and caught the attention of the legendary band manager / label owner, Alan McGee. They started to play in clubs in London and signed to a British indie-label called Weekender Records. Meanwhile, Ligeti and Zságer started to work together again. In 2008, Ligeti moved back to Hungary and joined the band Zagar as a permanent lead singer and as a guitarist. His characteristic voice can be heard on hit-singles like ‘Eastern Sugar’, ‘Never the Same’ and ‘We are Alone’.
