Napoleon Solo was formed in the summer of 1984 by eight youngsters living in Copenhagen and they played their first gig that year. The unique blend of Sixties-influenced soul, R&B, Jamaican ska and British Two-Tone proved from the beginning to be a great success. All the time Napoleon Solo has been known for a lively performance with a fresh attitude. Always sharply dressed. The band played in Hamburg for the first time in 1985 supporting the British band Making Time, but this concert was just the first of many performances in Germany.
