Boxbury Beat is a norwegian band that started under the name Zap Zap Music in 1984. The members then was Einar Øverenget(bass guitar and synthesizer programming, Kent Maurstad(gitar), Iver Erling Årva(keyboards) and Helge Hellebust(singer and synthesizer programming.


In 1985 a single was released on EMI. Never along with you on the A-side and Windows on the B-side. Iver Erling Årva had then left the band


Not long after the band dissolved.


In 2008 Boxbury Beat was contacted by Øystein Moe. He planned to release a dobbel cd with unrealesed norwegian synthmusic from 1980-88. Maskindans was released 2009 and Boxbury Beat contributed with Thunder and lightning(Bobby and I). At the releaseparty Boxbury Beat played 2 songs live. You can watch a video of

Bobby and I taken by one of the audions here



In all these years ideas have been lying in the drawer and the members of Boxbury Beat felt that it was time to work out the material and release. So in august 2012 we started to program the ideas once more. This time not on drum machines and synthesizers but on an Ipad and after that to Logic X. This work continued into 2013 and we are no ready with the album
