The Jan

[group photo]

The legendary four-piece ensemble The Jan, based in Halden, Norway, specialized in cover versions of songs by The Band. Actually, they only played "The Weight" (rumors say they tried playing "Up on Cripple Creek" once, but failed miserably) and the odd blues number every now and then. Formed in the spring of 1996 they have rehearsed for a total of two and a half hours and played numerous times at the infamous R.Ø.L.P. festival in Halden.

The members of this now defunkt band were Flisa aka Ketil Maribo (guitar and vocal), Dag Midtfjell (the piano has been drinking, not me), Torstein Jensen (drums) and Jan Høiberg (bass), plus assorted guest musicians. At their last performance in November 1998 they performed together with the female vocal group The Levonettes. A re-union concert may happen in 2001....

Here are two sound samples from The Jan's show in the spring of 1997. Enjoy, music lovers :-)
