, did "join the band" after several years of practice.
As a matter of fact I joined the band, long before I had any practice. If you had been there in 1984, I guess you would have noticed it. Well, I reckon my music taste was and is almost everything, as long as it got the swing. Rock is probably the main-area, but I never reject a melodic pop-tune, or a solid heavy-metal guitar, not to mention a classical minuet accompanied with a faustino I and a good-looking girl.
As the manager of this great band, you are about to know, I stand for the promotion and getting caviar and cool beers on the hotel rooms around the world, when we're on-tour. You can
, then I'll present your request's for the rest of the band.
was originally created in the mid-eighties, by the fabulous talented brothers Jes & Tom Kjeldsen. A prior factor for keeping this incredible band on the run is, and was, the motto of "keeping it as simple as possible, then there's a chance that it sounds good, too". The first classic tracks as "The Swindlers
", "What you do
" and "Sitting at a cafe
", not to mention "My hearts desire
", "Deep Down
" and "Jeg har ædt en kylling (I've eaten a chicken)
" again not to forget "Drive me, driver
", "Rock the public
", "Go for it
" and "True blue's
" last but not least "Smile
" and "My best girl

The Swindlers stands for a true, clear and straight sound (When they are sober). I can only summarize it up to "It's not easy to know, if you don't know it..."
The Swindlers is a band, for which live performance is one of the keys to satisfaction. Not many pictures has been taken of their well known charismatic concerts. But here is a few secret ones, from their "1990 Trige Tour" : "Rockin' around the Christmas tree"
, "Smoke on the water"
and "Love me tender"
. Again even more pictures from their "1994 Ikast Tour" : "One, Two, Three o'clock rock"
, "Are you ready ?"
and "Hit the road, Jack !"
