Well, October has turned into somewhat of a topsy turvy kind of a month.
An extra gig added at short notice and a long planned appearance cancelled at even shorter notice.
In recent months we have been in contact Sheffield based promoters Wagon Wheel Media and a couple of weeks ago they got in touch to offer The Janskys a wonderful support opportunity at Shakespeares in Sheffield playing with touring American acts Eef Barzelay of indie Americana band Clem Snide and Chris Otepka of The Heligoats.
The evening of Wednesday 16th October turned into a great night with Pat and Damian chuffed to be on the same bill as such talented understated song smiths as Eef and Chris. Intimate performances in front of an appreciative audience. Wonderful.
Next morning Damian was struck down with a cough and cold which took the wind out of his sails and the voice out of his throat. Let’s blame those Americans picking up and passing on autumnal cold bugs as they wend their way around the British Isles ;-). Anyway, hoping things would improve by Sunday 20th October for the scheduled Oxjam performance which was booked months ago, The Janskys decided on the day itself to cancel as things had not improved and their current set depends more than ever on the interplay of vocals between Pat and Damian. Sure the old man’s on the mend now….
More News soon…. wishing you all well.
