Hello to all my FGT Forum friends

Allow me to share my spare time passion with you. Some of you have already heard about me getting into the live music scene as I´ve opened up a small Rock´n´Roll Live Venue in my hometown of Helsingør (Elsinore) just 40 km North of Copenhagen. We will have a capacity around 300 in the audience when final details with authorities are cleared.

The place has quite an interesting history for someone who is passionate about cars. From 1922 to the late 50´ies it was one of Denmarks first and largest coachbuilders - pretty much as close to a car factory you could come. Mainly commercial vehicles like busses and trucks. Pics from back in the days are on our website. The venue name is therefore naturally "Karosserifabrikken" (Coachbuild Factory).

Karosserifabrikken is something we run in our spare time, but still we´re setting the bar quite high, aiming to be, over time, recognized as the best small scale live venue in the region. Located only a 15 minute ferry ride from Sweden we expect to cover the region of Swedish Helsingborg and Danish Elsinore.

The Covid-19 is a serious showstopper for us as a new venue, so as a “think out of the box” activity, we have created the concept “Lockdown Rock Sessions” – a live streaming concept of real rock concerts. Friday the 24th. we launch the first of 4 concerts to be streamed live on FB through Karosserifabrikkens FB page. Program attached.

Friday the 24th. is the global release date for the new album by Freddy & The Phantoms. This album has received the best reviews I´ve seen in years, getting only 8s, 9s and 10s by music magazines all over the world and already being mentioned as a possible “rock album of the year”.

I´d like to invite you to follow and see these concerts through our FB livestream. https://www.facebook.com/Karosserifabrikken
The concerts will later be uploaded to our Youtube channel Karosserifabrikken.

If you follow my FB page “Karosserifabrikken” you will be notified when the concerts start. All concerts start at Danish time 20.00 (8PM) (GMT+2)

I´ve also included our fall program in case you´d like to come visit us when everything opens up again. I´ll buy the first beer 🤘 🍻🤘 Elsinore would be a great place for you to visit when this Covid-19 Lockdown is over ....

Feel free to share if you have music aficionados among your friends.

Enjoy.

Anders

Hate to be a downer but I spent most of my adult life before law school playing in bands professionaly in clubs and venues across the Us. Unless Copenhagen is far different run don’t walk away from this. It’s a ridiculously hard biz even without a worldwide pandemic. My friends some of whom played with Frampton, Garth say the one thing they wouldn’t do is this

GTdrummer - thanks for the warning :cool: To be clear, this is in no way a good idea from a business perspective - That I already know - but just for shit & giggles to enrich my life with something else than serious business discussions ;)😆😂 I´m just trying to fill this life with as much fun and diversity in activities as I can before it ends. Btw did I tell that I´ve just stepped up in the skate board dept by adding a wind skater to my possession of stupid toys .... yes, an oversize longboard with a wave surfsail rig attached to the front. What could possibly go wrong 😂🤣😂

It's very parallel to the car hobby, in most cases, makes zero financial sense. But we all know, it isn't about that now is it.

"wind skater" sounds like an instant trip to the ER with my coordination level. Be safe on that thing.

This is great. Scandinavia produces a lot of great music and one of the great joys of my youth was being in tiny European concert venues destroying my hearing.

Good luck, and even if it's a disaster...it's a success.

Congrats. Nothing compares to the live music experience. Sharing those performances is even more important now. Keep up the good work.
