An honor and a privilige to play with the Danish rock/pop icons over the paste 5 decades Rugsted and Kreutzfekdt.

International cast - opening in Fredericia January 27, and at Greenwhich Theater February 22nd.

Esaura Fredericia Theater

okt 18th. 2013

This week Esaura comes to an end, but I've had the pleasure of sitting in for Steffen Shackinger on 6 shows. This time on Mandolin, Bouzouki, Nylon Western and percussion. A challenge I overcame, though there were times during preparation where I had my doubts. I'd like to thank both Steffen Shackinger and Thomas Møller for believing in me. When the history, the music and the arrangements compliment each other as in this show, it is truly an honor to participate.

Alan @ the Opera in Copenhagen

jul 18th. 2013

Until August the 20th I'm playing Aladdin the musical in the beautiful Opera-house in Copenhagen. Eight shows a week may sound like a lot, but I feel extremely privileged playing this amazing show with a fantastic supertight-tight 17 piece band. I had a chance to hear a recording from a rehearsal and it just sounds amazing thanks to sound-engineer Tim Høyer Andreasen. Thanx Tim - knowing you can hear every detail keeps us on our toes!
