My name is Jari Hulkkonen and I am from Imatra.
It feels awesome to Join the Ride!
I’ve played in Karelia Beat and a band nowadays called KB Rockers. I’ve also played some heavier music with RSS in the early 2000s. Furthermore, I’ve been part of the Karelia accordion orchestra.
I don’t really have any musical idols. However, back in the days, I started playing bass by listening to an Osmo’s Cosmos CD and imitating the playing style of their bassist Jussi Honka.
I don’t have a cowboy hat, but I do have a hat that looks like a Stetson pork pie.
