“Latenighters Under A Full Moon”

Berdon Kirksaether & The Twang Bar Kings' new album “Latenighters Under A Full Moon” tells the story of a tightknit group of buddies doing a “tour-de-force” through a Saturday night. The album contains 11 songs, all instrumentals, describing what the group of friends go through during this night. Anchored in the blues the album moves through the night with various diversions into jazz and latino grooves.  It starts with the guys warming up and getting into party mood. From there Berdon takes you through the night with all its emotions, ups and downs, visiting clubs, drinking, chasing ladies and soul searching while some of the group has to throw in the towel as the booze density gets too high, finally ending up with three of the guys still standing after all the proceedings, crawling home late at night under the full moon – Latenighters under a full moon!
