Wigwam is a Finnish progressive rock band formed in 1968.[1]

Background[change | change source]

Wigwam was founded after the split of Blues Section. It was founded by Ronnie Österberg. He formed the band as a trio, but soon brought in British expatriate singer/songwriter Jim Pembroke (also in Blues Section) and organist Jukka Gustavson. A year later, Pekka Pohjola joined on bass.

Their best known album was Nuclear Nightclub.
