Pam and I went with a group to see one of our friends play with his band. The venue was at Café Rampa in Hommelvik. We arrived about 9:30 pm, paid the 150 kr cover and settled in at a reserved table and ordered our drinks and a pizza.
We loved the atmosphere of this cafe. We ordered a pizza which was exceptionally good. Apparently this place was visited by Norway's version of Gordon Ramsay and he organized their kitchen and menus, and now the food is great.
The band came on 10:00. They were very good and very fun! I knew Robert was a good guitarist, but I'd never heard him solo on electric before, and he was sublime. He also sang lead on several songs. The band played a big variety, from rock to country, Beatles, Eagles and Beach Boys, floor stomping high-energy and soft slow dance songs. We danced and danced and danced with a progressively wilder crowd. They ended with The Final Countdown, a welcome blast from the 80s.
It was a late night and a great experience. A good day today.
