Frequently asked questions:
What is Axelbandet really? We are about 25 bandits from Åbo Akademi, Turun Yliopisto, Novia and other musically interested. We get together once a week to play jazz, swing, pop, rock and anything we feel like really.
Why do you practice? So we can play on music festivals, anniversary parties, weddings, tours and other festivities!
Is there a fee? Your time.
Do I need to know how to play an instrument? Of course we're happy if you already can sing or play an instrument, but all you need is a will to learn. We've had many people start from scratch.
Do I need my own instrument? Not necessarily, the band owns several instruments that you can play on, or at least try.
So I'll see you all monday! Sure thing!
