Airplayin

A flashback to the great performance…

AIRPLAYIN’ is a happy bunch of musicians from Norway who wants to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the legendary AIRPLAY album, which was released in 1980.

Unfortunately, AIRPLAY never became a real band. The two brilliant producers/musicians David Foster and Jay Graydon were the masterminds behind the production, and together with vocalist Tommy Funderburk (and Bill Champlin with a few TOTO friends) they formed the album which was to be the “mother of all westcoast albums”.

The songs from the album has rarely been performed live, and this is what triggered AIRPLAYIN’ to start rehearsing all the complex songs from the album.

AIRPLAYIN’ is a humble tribute to Graydon/Foster, and will be ready for live performances in Norway/Scandinavia by spring 2010!
