Jazz pre-party with Ogras 13 July

Ogras's making a jump start on this year's Moldejazz with a thrilling concert with catchy melodies and energetic rhythms. It's a safe bet to start the festival in style with a band that's rumoured to treat their audience to a proper party.

It has become a tradition that Moldejazz to kick of the week with a "jazz pre-party" Saturday before the festival, on what is now called the Sparbank1 SMN scene in the Alexandra Park. The pre-party – or Jazzvorspielet – this year becomes local concert with the festival favourites from Åndalsnes, Ogras, the band that takes you across Balkan plains, through dusty circus tent and Irish pubs. They will certainly put the audience in the right festival mood with their catchy melodies and energetic rhythms.
