WELCOME TO ZAKS

But sometimes we had let Svenn Edmund Olufsen (our brillarnt technician) prform his magic. Svenn Edmund was responsible  for all technical stuff, and fixed everything(The car, the amp's, the cables aso. A great asset for the band. (Photo:  Bjørn Saastad) 

Like many of the groups who came to life in the 60's. It took couple og years to "be" ZAKS. In 1964, however, we finally came togeher and ZAKS was established as a pop and Rock-group. We played mostly locally in  our hometown, Vardø.

 

As we grew more confident we expanded the tour-area. We arranged conserts all over Finnmank. and we were quite successful.
 

In 1967 we were touring all of Norway. Our bus carried us all the way to Oslo, the capital of Norway, where we stayed for about 3 months. During this period we play at CLUB7 (The ultimate for pop-music place in 1967), We also played in a club called Casino in Drammen, and a lot of different places in the area.

 

If you buy the book named "Everybody makes it big but us" you will find more information of the group, and the tour. Our dreams came trough, when we recorded our first singel "Take Special care/Too Young". 

 

You are welcome to  take a look at our producers Blog. This blogg  gives you detailed information about how the tape with songs were lost and then how we recovered after approx. 50 Years. Tecknically the tape was ok, and was sent to a specialists in Germany. So in 2014 ZAKS released an LP with only selfcomposed songs recorded in 1966/1967.
