Mere words alone will never truly express what Nelson Mandela has done for South Africa and it's people... We are all so deeply saddened to hear of Madiba's passing, and hope that this country and indeed the rest of the world, take a moment to appreciate his incredible ethos and the extraordinary person he was. We hope that the men, woman, and children of South Africa and beyond, find it in their hearts to apply to their own lives, the fundamentals of human compassion that he taught us so selflessly. Go in peace uTata Madiba, your work and sacrifice is done, and you deserve to rest now in the comfort of knowing that you changed the face of this world for the better. Peace. Just Jinjer.
Hey Jinjer friends, it's been a little while since our last update to you, so we thought we'd just let you know what we are up to at the moment!
It's been a really interesting few months, with a lot of exciting things having been discussed and done, some of which include new songs, new album, possible addition of a new band member, and some exciting new media for you to enjoy. A lot of these will be surprises along the way, but we can assure you they will be awesome so make sure you come along to the shows and see for yourselves!
On the 29th of October we played a very special show at an old church on Greenmarket Square in Cape Town. It was a stripped down acoustic show and definitely one of the most special ones we've ever done. Check out this video that we managed to grab of 'She Knows' below. There will be more coming from this show in the next few weeks, so stay tuned to our YouTube page and subscribe.
So we realise Just Jinjer has been a little quiet of late, but we can assure you that there's been plenty going on behind the scenes with all the band members! We miss you guys though, so we've decided organise a little Barnyard Tour over the next 3 months so that we can see all your faces again. The Barnyard venues have always been a favorite of ours, with great sound and not a bad seat in the house. Check out the details below for Durban, Joburg, and Cape Town and get booking so that you don't miss out.
I think we can all agree that it's been FAR too long since Just Jinjer played in Knysna. Well, we have found the most incredible venue, The Lost Plot on Brenton Hill, and we are planning an amazing show for all you Garden Route people on the 23rd of March. Tickets are R150 at www.webtickets.co.za and gates open at 2pm. Bring your own picnic if you like, but food and drinks will be on sale. (Please only purchase drinks on site though).
