Stebbi Ó. swingsextett was founded by Stefán Ómar Jakobsson, Eiríkur’s father, in 2012. The band is a classical ball-ensemble, having a big repertoire of swing dance numbers among hits from the 50’s and 60’s as well as new arrangements of pop songs, in the style of the old times. In recent years, SÓS has been focusing on the lindy-hop scene in Iceland, most notably playing at The Arctic Lindy Exchange.
Since the beginning, Eiríkur and Stefán have been prime arrangers for the band and the repertoire just keeps growing.
Members are Stefán Ómar Jakobsson on trombone, Eiríkur Rafn Stefánsson on trumpet, Haukur Gröndal on saxophone, Þröstur Þorbjörnsson on guitar, Jón Rafnsson on bass and Jón Björgvinsson on drums.
