This is the story of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA
They have been drifters for a thousand years, victims of circumstance. Now, the erstwhile classic rock pariahs of the NFO have finally found a place to call home.
Björn Strid, one of the most infamous, power vocalist vocalists of the millennium, unexpectedly had been hiding a classic rock heart behind that titanium ribcage of his for quite some time. When he spent some time in 2006 with David Andersson on tour somewhere in the US, he knew he´d found a kindred spirit. It might´ve happened when the local runner drove them over the bridges of Asbury Park, NJ blasting Layla on classic rock radio, it might´ve happened when they got drunk in the morning and drove from LA to Palm Springs to do a radio interview, and ended up doing acoustic Whitesnake covers instead. Actually, no one knows what really happened. But one of those American highways, they found out that they had a mission; to start a classic rock band and play it the way it’s supposed to be played, and find that band they did.
