Second Line Jazzband history and photo Album

The Second Line Jazzband was formed in 1989 and since then has established a position as one of the most popular traditional jazzbands in Europe. Original improvisations and arrangements and a tremendous intensity in our playing have given us oppurtunities to perform at many jazz clubs and festivals, on TV and radio in, for example, England, Germany, Holland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway and, of course, Sweden.
Many prominent musicians have guested our band over the years such as Antti Sarpila, Lillian Boutté and Orange Kellin. Our unique style comes from our widely differing musical backgrounds but above all it is the New Orleans revival style which gives us the greatest inspiration and is the kind of music we specialize in. The Second Line Jazzband has recorded ten CDs (the latest one “Lost Control” was released in spring 2008) with a mix of traditional jazz, spirituals but also numbers by Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Louis Prima, Pete Seeger and the Rolling Stones.
We do our best to keep the New Orleans music alive!
