What is Havnebussen?


Havnebussen was borne out of the compositions of Troels Frost and Peter Williams, and their search for a place to practice.

These two Copenhagen based musicians were in the process of making their chosen careers work alongside the reality of having recently become fathers, of different children, when they decided to workshop some of their new tunes by playing on the Copenhagen’s water bus.

Between the two of them they have covered about every musical style there is. Where they overlap, at least in writing style is in a funky, lounge-jazz, phusion, nu-jazz, jazz-hop, be-hop, country and western kind of an area. They discovered this during a Troels Frost Kvintet concert in Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2014. Peter was standing in for their regular bass player, the gig went really well, and afterwards Peter wasted no time in attempting to hijack the band.
