“Fantastic was a word that spread among the crowd after Saturday´s concert with Roger Bekkevoll & The Hummingbirds .And we must agree: A fantastic artist, fantastic musicians, fantastic songs, a fantastic mood, and not to forget a fantastic audience.
The singer/songwriter from Sandefjord has the ability to constantly to come up with something new. This was the fifth time I heard him, and it just sounds better every time. The crowd, sixty in numbers, sat mice quiet and thoroughly listened to the music. It was an experience that will stay with most of the people who were there. The response and feedback from the audience were overwhelming; the concert went in to extra time with many extra numbers this Saturday night. We really look forward to be following this artist with capital A into the future.” - B.Trevland, Bluesklubben.no, 8 mar 2009


“The musician and the band have at the time an even flow of concert dates. This weekend the tour is heading homeward to Sandefjord.
A little more than six months have passed since Roger Bekkevoll released his debut album Broken Strings & Coconut Rings. Since then he’s gathered a new band - The Hummingbirds – and played a number scenes and venues around Norway. The response has been brilliant , according to the vocalist and songwriter:

-Especially in Stavanger we had an awesome gig. There we played with some exchange students from Tanzania. They joined the performance with dance and drums at the same time. Absolutely the coolest thing so far, Bekkevoll hummers.

Double concert in the hometown. This weekend however it is another town starting with an s awaits. The hometown Sandefjord is visited for two performances. On Friday they play at Draaben Bar and on Saturday they squeeze in to Bakgården Kafé, a concert open to everyone at the Blues Clubs annual meeting.

The crowd can expect a somewhat changed musical path.

-Lately we´ve turned towards a seventies sound, strongly influenced by soul and jazz. After all I’m working with two jazzmusicians, he explains. The prime goal is a new album as a band. The songs are done, and they’ve started filming all the concerts to show the new songs at myspace.

-We are trying to finance recordings and composing and arranging the songs for a full band. Now we are more than just one singer/songwriter." - A.T.Bergsli, Sandefjords Blad, 4 mar 2009


“Roger Bekkevoll played during last year’s Oktoberblues, but this year he brought the whole band. I didn’t know that Sandefjordbrought up that kind of musicians. The Music is a sort of poprock, but with lyrics that are meant to draw attention. Check out the album – Broken Strings & Coconut Rings -, then you’ll understand what I mean.” - Christoffer Larsson, Bluesnews Norway no.57, oct 2008
