Led by composer-conductor Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen, this super band of Finnish jazz and rap has created a wonderful career including three studio albums and countless sweaty concerts. The time for the epitaphs and final festival gigs has come now, as the highly successful band has decided to quit after this season while the members will move towards new musical adventures. Ricky-Tick Big Band & Julkinen Sana has performed at Pori Jazz back in 2013 and 2016 and both times the brilliant big band featuring rappers Redrama, Paleface and Tommy Lindgren awed the audience. This time at Kirjurinluoto there’s an opportunity to hear even more of the band as the brass section will also perform with Timo Lassy later on the same day. However, before that they’ll feature a farewell show gathering twenty legendary Finnish musicians for a concert filled with high energy and awesome music.
