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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Playing all by yourself is fun because of the freedom ti brings. It allows you to play any song, follow every whim and do what ever you feel. Also challenge of course since there no one to lean on and interact with. The solo organ works both for backgorund music and for concerts.
Thomas Arnesen’s own band, offering a variety of blues standards and original songs. The approach to the blues can be described as modern, not adhering to a certain style or time period. Having two keyboard players in the band gives the music a rich sound and allows for more variation of arrangements. There’s also an ongoing collaboration with singer Claes Janson doing a BB King tribute.
“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).
Hans Bollandsås & Andreas Hellkvist in Concert
A collaboration with Norweigan singer, guitarist and songwriter Hans Bollandsås. Usually play as a trio, with different drummers. The repertoire consists of blues standards mixed with original songs. The output is intense, reflecting the energy of these two performers.
