Saturday Live: Martin & The Drunken Sailors!
Take a break from the Musikkfest street craze and come on down to cool yourself next to the river with yet another awesome gig:
If you want blues played in a authentic way, mixed with the caribbean style, this is the evening for you!
Members are Martin Caspersen on guitar and vocals, Njål Ra on the bass and Nicolai Sverdrup plays the drums.
Caspersen is known from bands like The phantoms, Wild Man Riddim, Toini And The Tomcats and Skrujern. Both Njål Ra and Nicolai Sverdrup is mostly known as Hired guns in the Oslo music scene.
The style of music is Blues, R n´B, and jamaican rock which means Reggea, Ska and Mento. This is mixed together with own material in norwegian. Since it is just a 3 piece lin-up, the style they play is very open with improvisation from all musicians, but gives the material a faithful treatment.
