Keisha - No time to Waste

Keisha delivers many hits in a R&B, pop and soul inspired performance from Uppsala Grand Theatre's main stage. Alongside great instrumentalists she creates an inviting atmosphere with nerve and feeling all through! Cool and daring runs are the cherry on top, which might even make the interpretations more interesting than the originals?


Also, check out Keisha's latest release "Waste" with accompanying music video, released last week! Directed by Keisha and Amanda Muisyo.

The Music Echoes over Summer Warm Öregrund

Saturday's premiere gig at Strandhotellet Restaurant Tullbacken's packed terraces was a great success and the singing restaurant audience managed to get WILHELM and the guest artist of the evening Leo Hartman to give just about everything in extra number after extra number! Together with delicious food, great weather and a beautiful sunset in the sea, the evening was an absolute pleasure.

When everyone joined in and sang "We Are The Champions" the children could not stay still. Not least a young girl who barely learned to walk, but still conveyed her feeling through joyful dance jumps and big mesmerized eyes. A fascination that grew even more when WILHELM came forward and played just for her and her only!


This Saturday July 24 it’s time again, when WILHELM and Leo Hartman take the stage once more. The musical entertainment begins at 20:00 with calm goodies that are stepped up gradually, to offer a memorable evening in an amazing environment!

Welcome Saturday July 24, 2021. Do not miss to book a table well in advance!

Imagine 2021

Uppland's regional final in the big music competition Imagine Sweden 2021 kicks off on Sunday 28 March! Once again the exciting show is streamed live on YouTube, without an audience due to the fight against Corona. The broadcast starts at 19:00 and ends at 21:30 with a presentation of the jury's decision.

There is a wide range of music with eight acts or competition entries, who fight to represent Uppland in the National Final. The big countrywide final, which will also be digital, is arranged this year by Region Jönköping during the Ascension weekend on May 14 & 15.

MPM proudly note that all competition entries with members of MPM Crew have advanced to the regional final, after two extremely tough semi-finals. Super cool, but not the least bit surprising. Now we long to see Gina Hannuksela and the band Baroña take the stage!

Martinas Mixtape feat. WILHELM at S:ta Clara in The Old Town of Stockholm

From an underground cellar vault in The Old Town of Stockholm, beautiful soul jazz melodies sound. The natural acoustics channel the music that is colored by ancient history. Since the 17th century, countless tones have bounced against the stone walls of the vault and this rainy October evening Martinas Mixtape has taken the stage. In honor of the day, the band is joined by Wilhelm on clarinet as well as alto and tenor saxophone.


With emotion, nerve and musical presence, both band and audience travel through time and space. The saxophone and clarinet melodies are performed with growling rawness interspersed with deep warmth in beautiful harmonic phrases. Based on the band's EP "Roses on the Moon", they jointly explore new harmonic complexities and offer the audience a musical adventure journey with halts in both the heat waves of the Southern States and the magical ether of outer space. Wilhelm adds new character to the songs, but the sweet Mixtape sound remains. The song material is alternated frequently with new unreleased songs and some classics such as "Summertime". Hope you enjoy!


The band's debut EP "Roses on the Moon" was released on September 18 (2020) and contains a distinctive, unique and already iconic neo-soul sound à la Martinas Mixtape. The singles "Old School Love", "Someone To" and "Same Way" have together with the title track "Roses on the Moon", "Like You Do" and "Never Fade" collected a considerable amount of streams on music platforms. No wonder, since the songs are both captivating and memorable. Beneath the beautiful harmonies hide Martina Steffner's multifaceted stories that are conveyed with strong presence and personality. Together with Edvin Widenfalk (guitar), Joel Oscarsson Löwgren (bass), Pontus Bornelind (piano) and Karl Ljungholm (drums) it constitutes the basis for the band's interaction and consonance in both emotion and musical expression.


"Really fun to play with such an exciting band. Almost a year ago, I invited some of the very best young musicians I’ve played with, to rehearse before a series of gigs with the project band MPM Selected Crew.

The first time everyone in today's constellation played together and got to know each other was before the celebrated "tour final" at Uppsala Grand Theatre, where the guitarists Leo Hartman and Mattias Loshak Snöbohm also were part of the project band.

From that group of musicians, Edvin, Martina, Joel, Pontus and Karl continued jamming together and despite the pandemic, the band Martinas Mixtape was created, which in a short time has achieved great success. With superb harmony and intriguing lyrics, the band has found a really nice melodic sound.

Reuniting tonight is great fun and I'm really looking forward to playing together again!"

Japan Tour with Uppsala University Jazz Orchestra

In addition to many concerts with talented guest artists in Sweden, they will visit Japan on a tour with Tokyo Bay's Disney World Hotel as a starting point. The Jubilee Tour is part of "Scandinavian Week" and UUJO's artistic leader Ulf Johansson Werre says that "this is a great opportunity to strengthen the bonds between the university worlds of Japan and Sweden through music".

The tour was supposed to take place in the summer of 2020, but has been postponed to the autumn. On the 6th of October the journey begins instead, according to preliminary information!

Instead, the entire finale is broadcast via the streaming site Twitch at 18:00 tonight Sunday, so that everyone can enjoy the exciting show. This year's national final is unfortunately cancelled, so tonight is the last chance to see the contestants of the 2020 edition. Of course, Imagine Sweden is returning with a full competition next year!

MPM can proudly note that three out of twelve competition entries, that managed to qualify for the final, are made up of artists and musicians from MPM Crew.
