Biography

Bames Venner was a musical group.

Bamses Venner represented Denmark in the 1980 Eurovision Song Contest.  They also recorded “Er du langsom i nat” and “I en lille båd der gynger”. In 1980, the band was composed of Flemming Bamse Jørgensen, lead vocals and bass (nicknamed “Bamse” which means “Teddy Bear”), Mogens Balle (piano/organ), Bjarne Green (guitar), and Arne Østergaard (drums). As of 2004, the band consisted of Jørgensen (vocals, bass), Peter Bødker (piano/organ/guitar), Frank Thøgersen (drums), Torben Fausø (keyboards) and Jes Kerstein (guitar). Bamses Venner sang in Danish.

Jørgensen died on 1 January 2011, aged 63, from a cardiac arrest. The rest of the band members have decided to break up after a series of planned memorial concerts.
