In 1987, five young men from Oslo, Norway were signed by Polygram and joined forces to record an album of finest Scandinavian AOR and Melodic Rock: DA VINCIs self-titled debut. In the tradition of other Scandinavian rock bands of the mid-80s such as Treat, Europe or Dalton, DA VINCI delivered well-produced songs full of hooks, driven by guitars and stunning keyboards. The success of the critically acclaimed debut immediately resulted in a second effort, Back In Business? from 1989, which is also considered to be a real gem among melodic rock aficionados worldwide. Bass player Bjorn Boge later joined STREET LEGAL and played with ex-EUROPE lead guitarist JOHN NORUM ?Wild Willy? Bendickson from BAD HABIT among others.
