Skin and Bones has the perfect antidote to the grey days of February in the Okanagan!
Atomic is an internationally celebrated quintet poised to perform on February 23rd at the Black Box Theatre in downtown Kelowna. Hailing from Norway and Sweden they formed in 2000 and released their first album “Feet music” in 2002. For the past 18 years they have been navigating the globe wooing audiences with their unique style of adventurous jazz expertly straddling the line between creative playing and swinging hard. Rest assured Atomic is no mere experiment in blending various styles of jazz, they perform with a virtuosic enthusiasm and energy that is guaranteed to emotionally resonate with Kelowna audiences.
Atomic’s most recent triple CD studio release (2017) “Six easy pieces” also features the band in top form live in Japan and received a four star rating from All About Jazz media. Premium pleasurable sounds from five brilliant musicians that is hard to beat and…..far cheaper than skiing!!!
Atomic is comprised of: Fredrik Ljungkvist reeds, Magnus Broo trumpet, Håvard Wiik piano, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten bass (who previously visited Kelowna in the summer of 2016 in the powerhouse trio The Thing), and Hans Hulbækmo drums.
