Lars Boutrup´s Music For Keyboards

Lars Boutrup was born on the 3rd of july 1961 in Copenhagen - Denmark.
The first public performance was together with a band called Blood Eagle back in 1979 at the Allerød College,
together with Mike Kock(ex.Harlort and now with the London Based duo Blomst) and Alex Nyborg Madsen.
Lars Boutrup played in the band for a couple of years before leaving the band for teaming up with long time friends -
in an experimental orcherstra called Massa. They played a weird combination of punk and instrumental music, with sound
effects and metalic percussion.Surely a band with no musical limits on the underground scene of Copenhagen.
In the mid-eights he formed a new band with singer Thomas Negrijn and guitar player Anders Tofft, Simcess Off Celeberty,
later to be known as Simcess.
The band enjoyed a huge succes between 1985 -1992, made 2 great albums: "Play WithYou Life"(1988) and "The House"
(1990) and played huge festivals like Roskilde Festival and Midt-Fyns Festisval along with venues in Sweden, The Netherlands and
France.
After the Simcess split up, Lars Boutrup joined the Slag Twins: Johnny Grauengaard(Vocals) and Christian Springer(Drums). They formed the group Sing-Sing. They made the album: "Human Cannonball" (1995) and their critically acclaimed CD " The Black EP"
from September 1994, including the hit song "Jennie" a song inspired by Marliyn Monroe.
Sing-Sing played a melodic rock style with an emphasis on fine vocals performed by all band members.
They even had their own great cannon to promote their touring, but the audience couldn´t see the point !
Sing-Sing finally disbanded in 1996.
Then Lars Boutrup played a tour for "Supernova" in 96/97, an outstanding girl duo to promote their second album
"Leave A Message"
After the Supernova tour Lars Boutrup was joined the band J.e.e.p., a beautiful band with great pop songs.
He toured with them to promote their debut album "Cracks",
Finally Lars Boutrup made his own band called "Big Bang", together with his old band mates from Simcess:
Michael Miller(Drums) Morten Løkken (Bass) Spike Nior(Drums) and Helge Hundahl the guitarist from Sing-Sing.
They have released 2 EP´s "Baby Blue" (1998) and "You´ve Gotta Move"(2001) so far.
In 2004 Lars Boutrup performed on Evil Masquerade´s debut album "Welcome To The Show"
A fascinating album, a great band, made the charts in Japan at #8 in the spring of 2004 and got some great reviews all
over the world! Evil Masquerade is the great axeman and composer Henrik Flyman and singer Henrik Brockmann(ex.Royal Hunt)
Apart from making rock and pop music, Lars Boutrup have played and composed to more than 100 hundred silent movies in Denmark and Sweden.
In 2005 Lars Boutrup is releasing his first solo album ever ! "Lars Boutrup´s Music For Keyboards"
9 superb instrumental songs, with warmth and dramatic swing. It is what an instrumental album should be all about.
On "Lars Boutrup´s Music For Keyboards" he´s got a helping hand from the great drummer Frederik Sunesen.
