This is Diplomatic Immunity!
Artur Wilczynski: Artur «Stix» Wilczynski is Canadas Ambassador to Norway and the groove behind Diplomatic Immunity. He spent the early 80’s banging out punk tunes in a garage band in Montreal. While his favorite Traveling Wilbury is Jeff Lynne, his biggest musical influence is Animal from the Muppets.
Randy Stocker: Acoustic/rhythm guitar, vocals; Government of Canada employee by day, aspiring balladeer by night. Married to the cute drummer!
Jim DeHart: Deputy Chief of Mission/Charges d’affairs at the US Embassy Oslo, has played in a string of mediocre rock bands throughout his 24-year diplomatic career, including «Rogue State» and «Taliband» during his time in Afghanistan. He is known for his laconic guitar style, with riffs so amazingly slow they defy the laws of physics. He met Artur and Randy at a horse derby in august 2015 and the rest is history.
Ørjan Tverbakk: Motor Pool Supervisor at the U.S. Embassy, 15 years and counting in US State Department, including service in Iraq. Started his first punk rock band in 1979 and has never really stopped punking. Previous experience from bands like «Terror For Jesus» with their monster hit «Lesbian Toe Suckers» landed him the «Diplomatic Immunity»-gig. Self-proclaimed bassmeister and rock’n roll-instructor. Had to give up drinking due to being too lazy to get up at night to go to the bathroom
Personal item: 1974 Rickenbacker 4001
Erik Skøld: Actor, teacher and Artur’s Personal Trainer. Has been deeply involved in dubbing and voice acting for the last 20 years. He is the youngest member of the band and doesn’t look a day over fabulous!
