Jungle jazz, swing music, and stories for children and adults alike

Where do drums really come from? How did they become a drum kit? Can you bang on the drum in a cinema? Or in a church? – And what does it have to do with jazz?

En FanJAZZtic Trommerejse ("A FanJAZZtic Drum Journey") is a musically saturated concert performance that tells the story of drums and jazz music from the savannah of Africa to the asphalt jungle of New York. The concert features a cornucopia of music from jungle blues and sad blues to blistering swing. Casper Mikkelsens Dejlige Jazzband delivers it all with a twinkle in the eye, impressive craftsmanship, and infectious enthusiasm. Definitely jazz for kids! 

Casper Mikkelsen's Dejlige Jazzband plays outgoing swing, jazz, and atmospheric (sound) images from dance halls, speakeasies, and silent movie theaters in the traffic jungles of the 1920s and 1930s in New Orleans, Chicago, and New York for listening, partying, dancing, and drinking crowds alike. The lovely jazz band has played more than 200 concerts throughout Denmark in the past few years, which might make it one of the country's most accomplished jazz bands.

In addition to regular engagements with bands such as The KutiMangoes, Magnus Fra Gaarden, and AUDIOGRAF, bandleader Mikkelsen has accompanied a wide range of the Danish music scene's top names, including Johnny Madsen, Chief1, Aarhus Jazz Orchestra, Benjamin Koppel, Jesper Thilo, Finn Ziegler, Sinne Eeg, Hugo Rasmussen, Jacob Fischer, and many more.
