In concert @ Hellkivst HQ, Aug 5th 2021

For a number of years, I've had an ongoing collaboration with Norweigan friends Hans Bollandsås and Helene Misund. They live in the Trondhiem area so it's not that close, but every once in a while we get together for a few concerts and some nice hang. This time they made the trip to Uppsala and we started out by doing a stream from the HQ. This was also the first time that drummer Ola Bothzén joined the group, which turned out great! Read more

The 100th day of 2021! How are we doing so far? Not that bad I think, although I did expect that we'd be further along fighting the pandemic.

Mostly requests stream at the Hammond B3

It's been an interesting week preparing for this stream! Got a lot of requests for songs that I haven't heard or played so a lot of new stuff to digest. The result, as usual, is a quite diverse set of songs, including both jazz, soul and Elton John! Speaking of the latter, playing "Funeral for a friend" was the big challenge this time. A song that I spent a lot of time with. Read more
