Trond Holter aka Teeny, member of Wigwam, will be debuting his new project – the Trond Holter Band- with a gig on 22 December in Halden, Norway. Apart from the Wigwam guitarist the band comprises 2007 Icelandic representative in the Eurovision Song Contest Eirikur Hauksson as a lead vocalist, Rino Johannessen bass of Dream Police, and Stig Buckholm drummer of CRASH!.

On 22 December, Hannestadgården in Halden, Norway will see the debuting concert of the Trond Holter Band. The brand new band comprises Icelander Eirikur Hauksson, Rino Johannessen bass guitarist of Dream Police, and Stig Buckholm drummer of CRASH!. The band have already recorded four tracks to be included in their first album, Lucifer's chamber, to be released later. "The success of Wig Wam has made it possible for me to build myself a recording studio, were I'm able to be creative, making (in my opinion anyway) good quality rock`n`roll music. He he. I also write music that sometimes does not blend in to the Wig Wam world, but still, things that I enjoy. I am in need to get these things out of my system, so the recordings are going to find their way to an album in the near future." says Trond

The Trond Holter Band will be playing the Hannestadgården in Halden, the venue of the first ever Wigwam concert in 2001. The venue has a 20 year age limit.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
