Sannhet på Boks – A Tribute to Raga Rockers

Aase Kleveland © Per Ole HagenI recently wrote about deLillos, one of the four great rock bands in Norway. Wednesday night twenty five different artists held a tribute concert to Raga Rockers, one of the other of the four greats. The occasion is that a CD box was released, Sannhet på boks (Truth In A Box), with twelve CDs with all of Raga Rockers’ songs, performed by these twenty five and almost one hundred more artists. (Picture above: former minister of culture Åse Kleveland, Atle Egil Glomstad and Chris Damien Doll)

The concert started with a set from the Raga Rockers tribute band, Blakk (Broke), who played a short set of Raga Rockers songs, with an uncanny vocal likeness from singer Joakim Jokke Landstad. After Blakk, the choir Mannskoret entered the stage, singing their tribute song, before the band for the night came on stage.

The whole show, the CD box and the concert was initiated by film diirector and producer Thomas Robsahm and Christer Falck, record company owner, entrepreneur, record collector, writer and Raga Rocker fan.

The band consisted of guitarists Chris Damien Doll and Atle Egil Glomstad, keyboardist Geir Bratland, basist Tommy Reite and Christain Svendsen on drums. The band made a remarkable job accompanying all the 19 of the artists during the night.
