Biography

Jetsurfers is a band from Norway. Thorstein Elvestad and Bjørn Nilsen formed Jetsurfers in 1999. Vidar Fredsvik and Knut Carlsson was recruited, and the 6 track CD “Jetsurfers - Saloon” was released later that year by Coco Pelli Records. Among the many gigs the band did to follow this release, was a dozen acoustic performances in jails and prisons in the southern part of Norway.

Grammofon AS Electra released their first long player, the critically acclaimed “Jetlagged In Jetland” late in 2000. The album gained good reviews in the Norwegian media, and its songs was frequently aired on radio stations all over Scandinavia.

Audun Norgaard replaced Carlsson in May 2001, and Lars Linkas replaced Vidar Fredsvik early in 2002. These two new members added new dimensions to Jetsurfers’ music, and kept the band moving in the right direction.

Grammofon AS Electra released their second long player, “Wildcards” in 2002. The song “Fireworks” became a hit at many radio stations, and once again the band gained good reviews. Sadly, the record company did nothing to support it, so it didn’t do as well as the first album.

By mid 2003 Jetsurfers was playing regularly at the acclaimed club Muddy Waters in Oslo, and decided to record a live album at the venue. “An Evening At Muddy Waters” was released by the band, and sold really well at gigs and through the official web pages. It was hailed as their best work to date by several reviewers.

Lars Linkas decided to leave the band early in 2004, and was replaced by Cato Monrad. Monrad joined just in time to participate in the recording of some songs for the new album, and the celebration of Jetsurfers five-year anniversary. Only to be replaced by the multi talented Ulf H. Aass later that year.
