In 2012 up to 2015 toured Hot Club d’Europe through Belgium, the Netherlands and several times in Finland. This band consists of the talented Olli Soikkeli on guitar, the experienced bassist Arnoud van den Berg and the strings wonder gipsy jazz guitarist Paulus Schäfer. A formation which represents surprising and swinging gypsy jazz. Both solo guitarists are frequently asked for concerts with other bands in Europe and USA Early 2012 Paulus Schäfer met Olli Soikkeli for the first time in theater Rataplan in Antwerp. The start of a successful partnership. A few months later Paul Schäfer and bassist Arnoud van den Berg were invited to join Olli Soikkeli to record an album. In a wooden chalet near a frozen lake at the Finnish town Kouvola arises a spontaneous musical interaction. The album ‘Kouvola Junction’ is characterized by a vibrant energetic sound and original interpretation of songs and an original composition and title song. An honest directly recorded live recording without corrections. Pure gypsy jazz without antics!
