In December 1981, five good friends in Torpshammar, Sweden, joined together and started a band.
They called themselves Nightdrivers and the idea to the name was taken from a Ventures tune called “Night Drive”.
Influenced by 50's rock'n'roll & country artists and guitar bands like The Ventures, their reportoir started to take form.
In 1984, the first single was released on the Swedish Rainbow Music label.
Two original songs; Outlaw / Golden Sunburst.
That same year the band played a support act for The Spotnicks and also finished up one night after Doug Sam & Sir Douglas Quintet had finished their show.
Not until 2004 did disc no. 2 arrive, which was an entire album with 18 songs on the Dutch label Rarity Records. The album was called Let Me Take You For A Ride.
In the wake of that album came an offer of becoming a back-up band for rock'n'roll artist Micke Muster.
A collaboration that lasted 2006-2009.
In 2013, disc no. 3 was released, an EP with four original tracks.
The track Carlene was played frequently on a major radio station in Sweden for weeks.
In 2016, Spotify editors created a playlist called ”Rockabilly Mania” and picked up the band's version of Ricky Nelson's "Believe What You Say".
It got good spread and the interest in the band has increased after this.
