Buy your coffee and pastry at the bar, take a seat, and start your Sunday the right way.

He holds a Master of Education in Music specialising in Jazz Saxophone from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and plays all kinds of saxophones and clarinet. His swing band, Björn and the Brothers of Rhythm, have been the house band for the swing dance festival Jumping at the Seaside in Brighton since 2015 and they also play regularly at the 1066 jazz club.

He portrayed Lester Young in the jazz musical “My Friend Lester” that was performed 3 years running at the Brighton Fringe and around the country.
