ØB7 has played at different jazzclubs and concert arrangements.

The band will give you a varied menu of sounds and rhythms. We move through high energy funk and rock to soft ballads – from Latin America to Africa. With an age span from 17 to 70+, young talents continue to flower among grey-haired veterans from our local jazz society. We love that our incubator still works!
Way Down the Rainbow // 19:30
Based on psychedelic rock, grunge and rock ballads, they make their own story based on how they feel and have it – with a goal of spreading joy around them!
