Good Romans is the finnish improvising duo of guitarist Ilari Filander and drummer Jussi Miettola. Unable to find a willing bass player to play with them in 2008, the fellows started making music as a two-piece band. After years of rigorous practising and playing the occasional gig, the duo debuted with their album Open This Door, Never Look Back in 2014.
In 2012 Good Romans hooked up with finnish master reedist Pepa Päivinen. Very quickly finding out that making music together on the spot without any pre-planned material is the true way to happiness, Pepa Päivinen & Good Romans have since released three albums and played many concerts.
In 2017 another musical left turn was taken as Good Romans teamed up with american avantgardist extraordinaire Eugene Chadbourne. The results of this collaboration can be heard on the Good Romans Meets Eugene Chadbourne –album Keep On Dreaming, a bold set of country and western covers and stinging off the cuff improvisations.
