Kiralina & the Funk Ups
With the charismatic Kiralina Salandy in the front, these passionate musicians makes each concert a virtual funk explosion. They play funk classics, jazz standards in funky arrangements, originals and new takes on old songs.
The perfect band for a club, a party, or just wherever people like to dance and have fun.
Andreas Hellkvist Trio
My own group, playing mostly my own music. A traditonal format with organ, guitar and drums, but with a fresh take on sound and style. In a way hard to label, but it merges elements of jazz, fusion, gospel and popular music.
The trio features the inspiring sounds and playing of guitarist Samuel Hällkvist, and the exquisit drums of Daniel Olsson.
Apan & Grisen
The Hammond organ and the drums. Two instruments that, when combined, provides almost unlimited possibilities to create various kinds of music. Andreas Hellkvist and Daniel Olsson explore these possibilities in different styles, depending on mood and occasion.
This duo works both for concerts and for soft background music. Depending on the size of the organ and drums used this duo can be compressed to fit into almost any corner.
“Pop, soul and party jazz with its roots in the 60’s and 70’s.”
Having both the Hammond and the Fender Rhodes in the band combines the two most influential keyboard instruments of the era and offers great possibilities in sound.
The repertoire consists of songs by Steve Wonder, The beatles, The Meters and others. It’s the perfect music for a saturday night! (or for any other night for that matter).
