All is Just Jinjer at the Barnyard

2010-08-06 00:00

INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed South African band Just Jinjer are preparing to rock The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway in Umhlanga for the first time, with two shows on Sunday and Monday.

Just Jinjer are one of the most successful rock bands in South Africa, having sold more than a quarter of a million albums. The band, made up of Ard Matthews (vocals and guitar), Brent Harris (drums and vocals) and Denholm Harding (bass and vocals), returned to their home country last year after being based in Los Angeles for eight years.

Over the past decade, Just Jinjer has performed and toured with U2, Counting Crows and Def Leppard, among many others, performing for hundreds of thousands of fans in venues­ all around the world from the United Kingdom to Dubai.

Audiences can expect to hear the band’s current radio hits off the Milk and Honies album, Time Of Your Life and What He Means, as well as a mix of their old favourites such as Shallow Waters, Father and Farther, Like You Madly, their cover version of Sugarman, Paradise In Summertime, Here’s To You and For All We Know.

Part of the appeal of The Barnyard Theatre for live music is its intimate setting as well as the great sound and lighting it has to offer. It also offers a laid-back environment where patrons­ are able to enjoy food and drinks before and during the show at tables and counters, and where one can meet the bands in the bar after the show to buy paraphernalia and get autographs.

Tickets are R150 per person. Seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. Phone The Barnyard Theatre at 031 566 3045 to book.
