The Real Thing
Norwegian soul-jazz legends play Kongsberg
Since The Real Thing started out in 1992 (2022 marks their 30th anniversary!), they have played more than 1600 concerts and sold over 55,000 records with swinging, organ-based soul-jazz inspired by greats such as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, George Benson and Wes Montgomery. The band, who “never exit the stage in a dry dinner jacket”, have a solid fan-base that stretches way outside the jazz core.
