Michael Ruff Band will feature Christina Boelskifte and a top tight and groovy band – be prepared, we are going back in time….
Michael Ruff is the kind of artist who everyone likes to “discover” and turn their friends onto. A consumate singer, songwriter and keyboardist, Ruff shows off his finely-honed skills.
Michael Ruff will be backed by singer Christina Boelskifte wellknown from the established music scene in Denmark in the last 20 years. She has sung with singers and groups from Sanne Salomonsen Nik & Jay for both large and small events, inter alia, Helle Thorning Schmidt and Queen Margrethe. She sings for the children in “Frost,” and has appeared for 250 million viewers live. There is not the genre she has not affected, but the style that is her most near, the pop and soul, and she feels in its element with a microphone and a piano. Læs videre “Michael Ruff Band 2017”

Most people know Mezzofortes smash hit Garden Party.
During the first year the Icelandic musicians played only copy music of their own idols: Chick Corea, Earth, Wind and Fire, George Duke and others. But soon the boys from the volcanic island discovered that they could also compose.
Their first album was released in 1979. In 1983 they had their international breakthrough with the song Garden Party, and since it went in quick succession for Mezzoforte. The orchestra expanded and had several singers, among other Noel Mccalla.
A short time they moved from volcanic to England to pursue their careers, but a few years after they returned to Iceland. Here they built their own studio in the late ’80s.
In total, Mezzoforte have produced and released 16 albums sold worldwide.
We are now ready with a short run for the Icelandic funkmasters
