Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra is a special 17 piece band that debuted at the Cross Linx festival tour in February earlier this year.

It is the 7-piece Efterklang live band with Daniel James (of Canon Blue) on guitar, Heather Broderick on piano and Peter Broderick on vibes and steel drum.

And then we have the brilliant Icelandic composer Daniel Bjarnason on Rhodes and then you add a saxophone quartet, a brass quartet and a classic percussionist. This all turns into Efterklang + Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra. We will be playing Efterklang songs with arrangements for the Messing Orchestra by Daniel Bjarnason.

We are honored to be invited to play this concert and the whole festival program looks amazing to us. More info here about the festival.

Here are some videos recorded back in February:

You should also take a look at Dennis Stempher’s website. He followed us for 4 days and took so many nice photos like the one below.

4 Very Special Efterklang Concerts in The Netherlands!

October 8, 2010 by Rasmus

We are very excited to share these news. In February we will take part of the annual Cross-Linx Festival in The Netherlands together with The National and Owen Pallett. The festival takes place in concert halls in 4 different cities (Utrect, Eindhoven, Groningen & Rotterdam) and one of their objectives is to let the alternative rock scene cross with the classical scene.

Therefore we have been invited to create a very special orchestra for these four concerts. We will be 16 musicians on stage plus our new friend Daniel Bjarnason (Bedroom Community) who will conduct and also do the arrangements for this special concert. It is too early for us to share all the details, but we can let you know that our band for these 4 shows will include a saxophone quartet!

The tickets go on sale tomorrow (Saturday) and if you would like the chance to attend one of these unique Efterklang concerts then we recommend you to book tickets fast. As mentioned the line-up include our good friends from The National and also Owen Pallett who is equally brilliant! Its gonna sell out and most likely very fast!
