CREAM - An entertaining hello and a sad goodbye

Written by 

Make no mistake, across the world we are all still grieving.

The sudden loss of Prince is still incredibly hard and sad to come to terms with. Last night (May 18) we opened our monthly soul/Funk club CREAM at Tap Room, with a Tribute to his Purple highness.

His influence can never be understated and the evening gave an opportunity for a number of Scandinavian Soul artists to present a version of their favourite Prince track.

Produced and lead by Tom Beimel (BASS) the musicians were; Andreas Aleman (Keys/vocals), Fabian Fallago (Keys), Joel Sahlin (Guitar), Stella Thors Berefelt (Percussion, Pads, Vocals) and Andreas Andersson (Sax). The artists were; Istria Sanchez, Christoffer Hiding, EllyEve, Jonas Holmberg, Anders Von Hofsten, Linn Segolson, Anna Sahlene, Fernando Fuentes, Jonas Holberg and Carla Gabriela Sánchez (BV).

Together with DJs Freddzor & Mossboll they all created a superb, Minneapolis vibe and thoroughly entertaining evening - fit for a Prince!




The tributes continue to flow online and Swedish artists The Neoholics and Erik Runeson have also released their own Prince cover versions.

Neoholics - When Doves Cry

Erik Runeson - How Come U Don't Call Me

 
On behalf of all of us at scandinavainsoul.com thank you Mr Prince Rodgers Nelson for all the fantastic music, moves, style and inspiration!
