    Go see/listen to Sammy’s Band (SJS Big Band) who are the opening act on Wed 30th Oct. We saw them when visiting in the middle of June on Iceland’s National Day at open air concert in Reykjavik…great jazz funk and rock whatever….brilliant!! So good we went straight out and bought three CDs from the local record stores.

    While heading down to the center of Rekjavik -we heard the most amazing music drifting up the hill, and came across Sammys Band playing on stage downtown. Am looking forward to hearing them on the 3oth.
