Kjell Roos Band is a dansband in Vallsta, Sweden.[1] The band was formed in 1969 by the brothers Kjell, Anders and Sven-Åke as Bröderna Roos (the Roos brothers). In the mid-1970s they changed their name to Roosarna. Since 1975, it is a full-time playing band. In 1982, the band begun to cooperate with Kikki Danielsson.

In 1990 the cooperation was increased when they began to appear as Kikki Danielsson & Roosarna, and scored several Svensktoppen hits during the 1990s. Kikki Danielsson & Roosarna was awarded a Grammis in 1994 for the album Vet du vad jag vet. In September 1996 they changed their name to Kikki Danielssons orkester.

In 1998, the band toured in church buildings, and the same year released material in Germany. When Kikki Danielsson left the band in February 2000, the band took the name Kjell Roos Band. Since 2003, however, Kikki Danielsson has once again begun to tour with the band.
