Gig And Salmon In Beautiful Beiarn

We came to Beiarn a little bit to late since Tapani was struggeling to get his lenses in his eyes for two hours. He is very slow when it comes to that. The first day we made a gig in a nice wooden house and we had a good time! The two guest artists, Paulo… Read more »

We’re getting closer to Beiarn and the Groove Valley Jazz Camp! Short stop at Arjeplog to check out the famous Arjeplogströmmarna.

Lappland has been fantastic during the last few days. We’ve caught several remarkable  fish, and really gotten close to some serious wildlife. Fresh bear tracks 100m from our tent…… Read more »

The days by calm streams and lakes in the North were filled by fishing for rising fish and sight fishing. Real slow fishing I would say; no rushing around, no fast movements that could spook the shy Northern… Read more »

Sauna

The Finns really know how to have a good time. First everybody – men and women, young and old –  get completely naked. Then they go into a unique torture chamber called sauna. The temperature in this torture chamber is about 700 degrees warm. Since they consider this to be way too cold, they immediately… Read more »

Smoke on the Water

Driving, driving, driving. It’s a long way from Northern Norway to Middle Finland. As usual, we were jamming a lot in the car, and today the repertoire consisted of rock classics like ”Smoke on the Water”, ”Enter Sandman”, ”Back in Black” etc. Fredrik´s singing is fantastic. He is very skilled at coming up with alternative… Read more »

Swingin' at the Skansen

After a good night’s sleep in Kilpisjärvi, we headed for Tromsö and the Skansen café, where we played what must be our best concert so far. The interplay is getting more creative with every concert, and we’re really having a good time with the music now, playing with the songs and challenging each other. Great… Read more »

Four Guys – Four Million Mosquitoes

Our gig in Kalott Jazz, Tornio, went really well. Lots of screaming happy people that actually wanted us to sign our fresh-sounding EP. We did not have time to stay to long though, since we were in a hurry to the next fishing trip. Joona, Håvard and Tapani drove the bus while I tried to… Read more »
