Kongen af selskabsmusikken har 50 års jubilæum

 

Det er ikke hver dag der er 50 års jubilæer i musikerbranchen. ikke desto mindre har Ole Erling d. 15 august 2010, været en del af den Danske musikscene i 50 år.

 

Det lå nok ikke lige i kortene, at det var musikken, der skulle blive Ole’s levevej. Derfor startede han også med at uddanne sig som elektriker, men hjemmet var fyldt af musik og harmoni.

 

Alle spillede klaver derhjemme, og i en ret sen alder startede han med selv at spille.

Nu var Ole jo elektriker, så det blev Ikke klaveret der blev vejen frem. Der skulle strøm på, så det blev orglet Ole kastede al sin kærlighed på, altså efter hans hustru Lise.

 

Som den første der medbragte et større orgel blev efterspørgslen hurtigt så massiv

at Ole Erling måtte overveje hvad man skulle gøre når man kun kunne være ét sted ad gangen.

Det startede grammofonselskabet P.M. Music hvor Ole Erling kunne spille til mange selskaber på én gang, ved at sælge en masse festbånd med ”Syng med musik ”.

Det er efterhånden blevet til et halvt hundrede indspilninger, -og kassettebåndene er blevet til CD, i striber. Gennem tiderne er det blevet til næsten 50 soloudgivelser men også compilaitions med Glenn Millers orkester, Bent Fabric, Jørgen Ingmann, Hugo Winterhalter, Billy Vaughn, Al Hirt og Herp Albert er udkommet over hele verden.

 

Herhjemme har Ole Erling i sit eget selskab og studie deltaget i en masse udgivelser med

kendte Danske kunstnere der stadig spilles og bruges. I årene der gik blev der produceret millioner af kassettebånd på hans fabrik,

med alle de kendte kunstnere i oplag man ikke ser i dag- rekorden er 380.000 stk. bånd af ét nummer.

 

I 1997 kom så en af de oplevelser, hvor man tænkte: ”Hvad var det der lige skete”.

Det var heromkring at den store Easy Listening bølge startede, og det havde Langelandsfestivalen også opdaget. De kontaktede Ole Erling og ville gerne have ham til at optræde i et af deres store telte. Det blev en kæmpesucces og slagord som ”Ole er gud” gjaldede ud over festivalpladsen døgnet rundt. Denne succes holdt i hele 5 år og gav en masse radio, pladeudgivelser og TV.

 

I de efterfølgende år har Ole igen passet sit hjertebarn selskabsmusikken.

 

Den fylder stadig meget, og Ole er stadig meget flittig med at spille til små og store fester,

for som kultfænomenet selv siger

”Man skal jo holde sig i gang”.

The Danish King of Easy Listening reaches his 50 years anniversery.

 

It’s not an every-day event that we see a 50 years anniversary in the music business. Nevertheless Ole Erling has been an active part of the Danish music scene for 50 years.

It was not written in Ole’s papers that the music would be his life. Actually he started by getting an education as an electrician, but his family home was å full of music and harmony. Everybody played the piano, and Ole started to play the piano during his late teenage years. It was for a reason, that Ole was an electrician, and the piano had to step back. He needed more power so Ole threw all his love on the organ. That is after his wife Lise. Ole was actually the first in Denmark who brought an organ to his gigs with all its possibilities of sounds and rhythms.

Ole is without any doubt the King of party music in Denmark. Over the years thousand of parties have enjoyed Ole’s skills in terms of creating a great atmosphere. On top of that Ole Erling have played for the Royal family, at discotheques, at festivals and he has participated in a number of radio and tv shows.

The demands for Ole party music increased, and he had to realize that it is impossible to be in more than one place at a time. He had to find new ways, and he found out that he could be I many places at one time if he could find the way into his fans’ homes and all the way to their stereos. He started his own record company P.M. Music. Now he could play his happy sing-along music to a countless number of smaller and bigger private parties at one time..

Over the years Ole has produced almost 50 solo albums. Besides from his own recording Ole has released recording with a lot of high profiled names like Glen Miller’s Orchestra, Bent Fabric, Jorgen Ingmann, Billy Vaughn , Hugo Winterhalter and Herb Albert. Many of these P.M. Music releases have been launched on larger international markets. On top of that Ole has – in his own company and studio - participated on many recordings with well known Danish artists – recording that are still considered been true evergreens.

Back in 1997 Ole had one of these experiences where you have to ask your self :”What happened?” It was around this time that the Easy Listening wave started, and one of the most popular music festival in Denmark – Langelandsfestival – contacted Ole and asked if he could play in the largest tent on the festival. It became a huge success and it lasted for 5 straight years. After these 5 successful years Ole decided to concentrate on his baby – party music. It still takes up a lot of time and Ole is still creating happy faces and good atmosphere at big and small parties all over the country. As Ole states: “You have to stay active.”
