      ORBO & The Longshots is not only among the top live bands in Norway, but also one of the top recording artists in the country. The combination of writing, performing and recording original songs was recently described by Rick Rubin as a "lost artform" when talking about Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as "the last rock’n’rollers". But rock’n’roll is not lost. And as long as there are bands like this around it never will be.
      ORBO & The Longshots just released their third album "High Roller" on the credible and cool indie label Grappa/BlueMood. It was recorded live in studio and includes parts of Chuck Berry’s own horn section "The Kings Of Swing" as well as "The Northwestern String Quartet". The album is high octane, loaded with energy, high class vocals, defined sound and great songs.

      Their second album "Genuine Handmade Rock’n’Roll" was recorded in legendary Sun Studio, Memphis, TN and their first one "Seven" in Compass Sound Studio, Nashville, TN. "High Roller" was recorded in Seattle, WA and ORBO & The Longshots have no intention of stopping there. The band’s ambitious "pilgrim-project" is to record their albums in all the big music capitols of the world. To become one with the roots of their music and to develope the genre by combining tradition and fresh blood. ORBO & The Longshots mean business and they have come to stay. To rock and roll in years to come.
