In 2010 five of us in a freelance network of about fifhteen professional musicians that performed whenever wherever the freight allowed realized that while we might not be making commercial music, we hit some pretty good grooves when we got to a stage. So 23-24 April 2010 we held a combined association start-up and jam session at my home in Tyllinge, Sweden. We went through democratic discussion and voting on the seminal regulations, filed an application with the Swedish Tax Service and were granted legitimate non-profit status on 25 May 2010. And so ... we're rolling. [email protected]
