Jørun Bøgeberg’s 60 Year Celebration with Musical Friends

Jorun Bogeberg 06052018-04Jørun Bøgeberg is one of the most used Norwegian musicians, having played professionally since the early 70’s in all different genres. He has toured and played almost everywhere in Norway, and also played for 150.000 people in Rio de Janeiro. Last night he celebrated his 60 year birthday at a packed Victoria Jazzscene in Oslo with some of his musical friends from the last 40 years.

The first time I saw Jørun Bøbeberg live, he played with the heavy rock band Flax. After that he played in Junipher Greene, and then Road, with the guitarst Eivind Aarseth. In the mid 80’s he played with Heavy Gentlemen, one of Oslo’s best live bands at the time. He had a bluegrass band in the 80’s, Gone At Last, with Claudia Scott, Jeff Wasserman and Terje Kinn, and also played as a live musician with a-ha from 1990 to 1994. Jørun Bøgeberg’s discography is equally impressive, having played on around 150 albums since 1980.

The concert started with Jørun Bøgeberg’s latest band, Henhouse. The band consists of Jørun on Fender Bass VI, Nils Einar Vinjor on guitar and Trond Augland on drums. The band have just released their first album, and the band played the whole album in a hone hour set.

After a short break, Jørun Bøgeberg’s friends and colleagues started to fill the stage. The venue was almost sold out, and we all had a great time with performances from some of our absolutely best artists and musicians. Here are photos of the different constellations more or less chronologically through the two  hours it lasted.
