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).
Now in it's 11th year, the Just Jinjer show at Dunes, Hout Bay has become an absolute Cape Town institution for December holiday makers, both local and international. After taking a break for much of 2012 to make time for solo projects, the members of Just Jinjer are excited to be taking to the stage for the first time this year. "No matter how busy we are during the year, it just wouldn't be the same without the Dunes show, it's an amazing setting and the fans get really amped. A great ending to a busy year without a doubt!", says Denholm Harding, bass guitarist for Just Jinjer.
This year saw both Ard Matthews and Brent Harris recording and releasing solo projects with their own distinct flavors, and a decision was made to rest the Just Jinjer name while promoting and touring their own albums. "Just Jinjer never actually broke up, despite what was said in the media, we just all needed time to explore our own energies and focus on what we needed to get out personally, and we couldn't do that in good conscience while trying to play Jinjer shows in between, it wouldn't have been fair on anyone to dilute the name", says Ard Matthews, lead singer. "When the Dunes date came up it just felt right to get the guys together and end the year off with a big one, as much as it's important to our friends and fans, it's even more so to us", Brent Harris, drummer, goes on to say.
