The supergroup made up of members of Motorpsycho, Spidergawd, and Elephant9

Norwegian saxophonist and bandleader Kjetil Møster gained public attention in 2000 during a legendary performance with Chick Corea and the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. Since then, he has collaborated with numerous bands and artists, played hundreds of concerts worldwide, and released around 50 albums spanning jazz and improvised music, noise, contemporary music, free rock, electronica, hip-hop, and pop. Kjetil Møster was awarded "International Jazz Talent of the Year" in 2006 and has since received several Norwegian Grammys.

With his current band MØSTER!, he has assembled a true supergroup.
Guitarist Hans Magnus Ryan, better known as 'Snah,' plays with Motorpsycho. Bassist Nikolai Hængsle is a member of the sensational prog-jazz trio Elephant9 and is one of the most sought-after session bassists in Norway. Kenneth Kapstad was also with Motorpsycho from 2007-2016 and is now the drummer for Spidergawd as well as various Norwegian rock and experimental jazz formations.

Møster! released five albums between 2013 and 2020 on the Norwegian label Hubro, regularly touring across Europe and performing at festivals like Re:Wire, Jazzfestival Saalfelden, Kongsberg, and the Molde Int. Jazz Festival. Drawing from the innovative rock and jazz of the 1970s and inspired by bands and artists like Soft Machine, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis, as well as heavily influenced by the rhythms of Fela Kuti, the sounds of Harry Partch, Karlheinz Stockhausen, the spirit of Can, and the power of Black Sabbath, Møster! have developed their own musical world. It is a fiercely bubbling mixture where electro-acoustic sounds are fueled by ecstatic rhythms, releasing new energies with immense thrust and flickering vitality. The band's new sixth album, "Springs," will be released just in time for the current tour. It will be a celebration.

Doors open at 7 pm
