Welcome to a party where Andreas Hellkvist is entertaining at his Hammond. Those who have followed him, both online and IRL knows that when he sits down at the organ, anything can happen. The repertoire spans a wide range of music between jazz, rock, gospel, pop and everything in between. And the organ is being played in the unique way that has become one of Andreas’ trademarks. Sometimes with guest artists.
Trinity is mainly a jazz trio, playing jazz standards mixed with some originals. However , the repertoire can vary a little depending on the venue. We play mainly jazz clubs, festivals, churches, schools and homes for elderly. This trio has over the years developed an intimate, almost telepathic interplay. Regardless of whether it’s evergreens, pop songs or originals, the Trinity sound is there. Sometimes intense and loud, sometimes soft and whispering.
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.
Kiralina Salandy & Andreas Hellkvist
A dynamic duo in the true sense of the word. Two expressive personalities meet in the music of gospel, soul and blues.
A gospel trio, mostly focusing on the traditional repertoire of Mahalia Jackson and others. In this trio, Kiralina returns to her gospel roots, elegantly backed by the Hammond and the drums, played by Jesper Kviberg. In addition to gospel concerts, this trio can also provide music for events, dinners and such.
Claes Janson & Andreas Hellkvist
A voice, a hammond organ and gems from Claes’ whole repertoire. One of Sweden’s most beloved voices with one of the most vistuoso organists. It simply can’t go wrong.
“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).
Double organ madness
How can you combine two organs in a way that they complement and strengthen each other without it turning in to a competition in volume and technique? As it turned out – a lot of things that are both fun and musically interesting. Jazz standards, “classic” organ jazz, a few original compositions and some funk and groove. Jesper Kviberg sits in the middle at the drums and ties it all together. So much fun!
A trio focusing on early David Bowie songs. The instrumentation, with an acoustic, an electric guitar and a Hammond is a little unconventional. But that make the whole thing even more exciting and challenging. The songs are mainly from Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust.
HQ piano trio
Believe it or not, a trio without a Hammond! Andreas, Erik Tengholm and Oscar Johansson-Werre got together in the summer of 2020 to jam and it was the perfect group to use a setup with piano and bass pedals connected to a Moog synth. The repertoire spans a wide spectru of jazz, with influences from Oscar Peterson as well as Moccy Tyner.
S.H.O.P. – Söderlind Hellkvist Organ jazz Project
Erik Söderlind, Andreas Hellkvist and Chris Montgomery – three prominent Swedish jazz musicians from the same generation, sharing a love for the organ jazz from the 50’s and 60’s. This project is a celebration to the music and sound created by Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff and their likes. Straight ahead and swinging, with taste and finesse.
The Sitting Three
Orgel, trummor och pedal steel – inte en helt vanlig kombination. När man hör hur det låter förvånas man än mer varför det är så. Hur som helst, det blir ett otroligt häftigt sound och konceptet är också intressant – tre personer som alla sitter och spelar med båda händer och fötter. (därav namnet). Lite VM i koordination kan man säga, men framförallt – bra och svängig musik!
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.
Jan Johansen & Andreas Hellkvist
Jan Johansen och Andreas Hellkvist bjuder på en bred repertoar med en blandning av soul, rock och blues och annat. Jan sjunger samt spelar gitarr och stompbox. Andreas ägnar sig förstås främst Hammondorgeln, men en och annan sångstämma kan också höras. För att vara två personer skapar de ett väldigt fylligt sound och samspelet dem emellan svänger fint.
