About me

Born in Bergen in April, 1962 (wow....the kid is getting old...:-) as the youngest of four brothers.

Since his early years, Trond has always been a sport maniac...Himself a talented soccer player, but also trying out lots of different sports as, athletics, judo, table tennis, among others (active kid). As he got deeply into music from the age of 15-16, he needed to make some priorities....But his interest i sports never left him. And he stayed active with local soccer teams for many years.

Trond married Ona-Helen many years ago they are parents of 4...sons...(the wild bunch) The family live in a house in Sotra, just outside Bergen-Norway. And they have a dog, as well...

Trond joining a new blues project - Gråblå Strenger (Bergen - NO)

Trond is happy being part of the local Bergen based band featuring musicians, Dag Bergesen (bass, vocal), Tore Kvalvik (Guitars) and Bjørn Moe (Drums), forming the "Gråblå Strenger". The band is an "on the side" project for especially Trond and Dag, while having their own bands as the main occupation. The mostly does blues related material but slightly different from TOB and Dag Bergesden Band. Both Tore and Bjørn have strong influences in the sound of the band.

All the guys really enjoy coming together sharing their joy in the music....and lots of fun, also verbally...:-)
