LightBoxer is a new instrumental band, riding on an improvised wakeboard on top of the Afro wave. Tight grooves and deep ambiances, a hint of Morriconean vibes and plenty of film influences fuel the tow boat to the sunset and back.

Their self-titled debut album was got raving reviews and it was nominated for the Finnish Emma Award for the Best Jazz Album in 2012. The musicians can be tagged to numerous jazz and soul ensembles, such as rapper Paleface's band, Tuomo, Emma Salokoski, U-Street All Stars and Jukka Perko.

Aki Haarala - guitar
Markus Holkko - saxophone
Emil Luukkonen - Hammond
Ville Herrala - bass
Mikko Pöyhönen - drums
