Friday 24th January 2014 sees the band return to The Greystones in Sheffield with a show supporting local singer songwriter Julian Jones appearing with his full band.  Julian and his band produce a lush mixture of pop, indie and country.  This gig is the first time The Janskys have played at The Greystones since early 2012 when they supported Pete Williams of Dexys.

After that the next gig currently booked is on Thursday 27th March and sees the band head to pastures new playing their first ever Manchester show with a slot at the Fallow Cafe promoted by Sideways Saloon.  The lads are very much looking forward to this jaunt across the hills.

We are also currently in discussions to try and secure dates for the band in Leeds and Derby.
